I Could Be Your Saviour Says BrandosLife

BrandosLife is A young singer-songwriter, producer, and performer from North-West London in the United Kingdom. Simply said, Brando wants to create music that touches people—from music that explores personal experiences to music that makes you want to dance. He truly understands how to connect with his audience through his “can’t get this out of your head” melodies and pop-like lyricism, pulling off the bandage and expressing what words are unable to.

The vulnerable nature of love and how it may swing you in directions you feel unprepared for are explored in the bouncy R&B song “SAVIOUR.” Would you be truly set back if you gave in? Or let out a bigger, undiscovered version of you? Who exactly would you leap for if you took this risky step of faith?

What is your stage name?

BrandosLife

 

Is there a story behind your stage name?

Hahaha, there’s not much story behind my stage name to be honest. I really wanted to go by the name of just ‘Brando’ unfortunately it’s been taken. I thought of a variation like ‘Brandö’ but one of my favourite artist Chloë is now named that after she went to do some solo music so I shied away from it. BrandosLife came to me and frankly it works pretty well as I do like to tell my stories through music. Who knows I might change it in the future lol

 

Where do you find inspiration?

My inspiration really does come from anywhere and everything. Sometimes I like to tell my personal stories other times the stories of people I know. Inspiration really does just hit you in the face at all times it’s up to you whether you’re willing to listen / make note of it. Though I will say forcing myself out of the house more has been the turning wheels driving my creativity at full force; pushing myself out my comfort zone whenever I can.

 

What was the role of music in the early years of your life?

Music has always been around me. I quickly picked up a strong connection to it in my early years almost like an addiction that would forever be my saving grace. Whenever I was happy, sad or going through something I had music. This love would later be the birth of my musical journey and how I am here today.

 

Are you from a musical or artistic family?

I’m honestly not from a musical nor artistic family. Sure, we are all creative but when it came to becoming an artist myself. I believe I’m the first. My mother did love dancing when she was younger but had to stop due to her parents not being able to afford it that time and my dad apparently sang a bit but other than that. It’s just me.

Who inspired you to be a part of the music industry?

It was a decision made by me motivated by my love for performing. The concept of being a performer was there in my heart it just took a while for me to grasp what type. I started doing dancing from a young age, did it for 13 years plus, and though I loved it. It just wasn’t enough for me.

I personally felt I was holding back and not challenging myself enough. I knew I could sing but when it came to putting the two together I knew dancing was the superior talent so I worked on it (still am). This was the start of my journey.

Big artists like Beyoncé, Mariah Carey and Prince are all artists that have inspired me to do music in many ways. I love them so deep however I knew it had to come from me personally and my love for music when becoming an artist to insure authenticity.

 

How did you learn to sing/write/to play?

With doing anything it’s a work in progress. I had to get in that head space before even attempting something like singing and writing. I couldn’t allow myself to be self destructive in a industry so much based on criticism (good or bad) from others.

Singing was probably the hardest (still is) I doubt myself all the time but as long as I know that I’m still practicing and bettering myself I will forever evolve. I worked really hard with my vocal coach over a few months to get a to a decent spot when I first started and kept it up from there. She woud challenge and push me every week and with that knowledge I applied it to music.

When it came to writing in the beginning it was a struggle as I didn’t know what I was doing. A true case of trial and error. I later realised that writing is an art form that can be interpreted in any way which took the pressure off my pen. Those that connect with it will forever be my in heart.

What was the first concert that you ever went to and who did you see perform?

My first concert was Beyoncé’s first solo tour I believe at Wembley Stadium back in 2004. I was three and we had seats all the way at the back. I don’t know how, but it must have been a gift from God, the security at the back gave us two front row tickets and boom there I was right at the front right infront of my idol. Apparently I couldn’t keep my eyes off her and she sang ‘Dangerously in Love’ to me hahaha.

 

How could you describe your music?

I find it hard to describe my sound as I do like to try different genres here and there. I just know that whatever I bring you’re always going to get an R&B vibe as that’s what my voice naturally carries. So I wanna say R&B / Pop with my own modern infusion.

I like my music to be a great escape from reality when it can or a moment that pulls you in and demands you to be present in the moment.

 

Describe your creative process.

Honestly my creative process varies. However in most cases I like to finish writing all my lyrics first and then move onto recording so I can focus on the recording performance.

My notes app on my phone is almost like a personal diary, whenever I feel something or an idea like a single phrase, word or feeling that comes to me I make note of it so when it comes to sitting down and writing I’ve got material to go off.

Once I got the witing down, I record it all and roughly mix the track to send to my mixing and mastering engineer BIG Z.

What is your main inspiration?

Life. Everyday is something different even when it feels the same there’s always something. Another story to be told. It’s what keeps me writing; past, present and future.

 

What musician do you admire most and why?

My main admiration has to be Beyoncé. I am in love with the stage its why I do music honestly. Her perfection when it comes to putting on a show is second to none; watching her over the years grow as the performer she is today has been refreshing. It inspires me everyday in hopes that maybe I’ll be even an ounce of that greatness. It’s the goal.

 

Who do you see as your main competitor?

Myself alone. I try with everything I do to continually out do myself. I personally believe it’s the only way to truly grow as a person. When it comes to artistry I like to one up myself every release.

My favourite thing to do after anything big I do whether its a new release, show or photoshoot etc I like to write notes on ‘what went well’ and ‘what went bad’. From that I pick it all apart constructively and non constructively and be 100% objective with myself so I can improve and better myself.

What are your interests outside of music?

I actually don’t have many interests outside music as its my life lol but I really like reading whenever I get time and going down the rabbit hole of learning about skincare. Kinda boring hahaha

 

If it wasn’t a music career, what would you be doing?

I can’t imagine myself doing anything else to be honest. Maybe a dermatologist haha

 

What is the biggest problem you have encountered in the journey of music?

Probably the constant updating of algorithms when it comes to promoting music on social media. Yes, adapting is a part of the process though it can be frustrating when there’s no information available to small content creators with these changes. It’s a constant guessing game on what will now work every other month.

What are your plans for the coming months?

I have another show on the 23rd September so I’m currently preparing for that and working on another song which I hope will be out in the next month or two.

 

Do you have any artistic collaboration plans?

Unfortunately no, I’m always on the look out though. I’m just a bit picky. I would never want to collaborate for the sake of collaborating it’s gotta bring a bit of value in terms of pushing me as an artist.

 

What message would you like to give to your fans?

Well firstly, thank you so much! Your support is the reason I keep on going. & for those thinking of truly going for their dreams, do it! I’ve never been happier; it’s never too late!
