"Songs don't need to be long. I love writing short, simple songs that really hit home."--Brandon Broderick
Broderick spreads his music through consistent recordings and live performances. He employs a DIY (Do-It-Yourself) attitude in regards to his work by recording, mixing and producing his own songs--including recording and archiving every single one of his live performances in high quality audio.
Broderick likes to perform different songs every single show and also changes the order of songs in his setlist from night to night. "I don't like repeating songs too much. Even if I'm playing in different places. I like the spontaneity of it. I love the idea that you can come to multiple shows and always hear fresh material."-- Brandon Broderick
All of Broderick's live performances are recorded from the Soundboard (high quality) and archived at bblive.bandcamp.com.
Born in Princeton, NJ in 1989 and raised in Hightstown, NJ , Broderick started out as a drummer in the Walter C. Black elementary school marching band. Eventually, he formed his own rock band called "Dark Rode" at Hightstown High School in 2004. In Dark Rode, Broderick played drums and wrote most of the band's original material. Broderick also performed drums in the High School Jazz Band.
While he continued to perform with several bands locally, Broderick took to the streets performing open mics around Central NJ as a solo artist. He continually wrote songs and honed his craft behind the scenes. In the spring of 2012, Broderick became a full time solo performer and producer as well as a professional guitar player and session musician.
Inspired by the works of Dave Matthews, Bob Dylan, Phish, Bruce Springsteen, The Grateful Dead and Tom Waits, Broderick intends to become a prolific performer and songwriter who can captivate audiences across the globe.
Broderick is also the current lead guitar player for Jersey Rock Band "Morningside Lane."
Aside from being a songwriter and producer, Broderick is also a full time private music teacher. He teaches guitar, vocals, piano, bass and music theory for all age groups and difficulty levels.
