Once in a while you connect with a project and an artist that your intuition tells you from the gate “This is important”. This is one of those whiles and XII is that project and Brandon Williams is that artist. The above interview is more conversation than a formal examination for “just the facts”, more to the point this is a conversation about the importance of great music and the need for that type of music to inhabit our atmosphere. Press play and share and share and share to help the word go forth about this fantastic musical happening.

Tomorrow night if you’re in the ATL make sure you head out to support Brandon as he opens up for José James at Variety Playhouse.
