#Growns we wanted to take some time to get you familiar with sound of singer/songwriter/actor Phillip Brandon. Phillip will be releasing his debut album The Story Begins on October 20th. Produced by award winning songwriter – producer Preston Glass(Natalie Cole, Aretha Franklin, George Benson, Kenny G) The Story Begins is described as “a warm wraparound throwback of soul-stirring Contemporary Jazz, R&B and Pop”.

What we invite you to press play on today is “Come On” which is the lead single from The Story Begins. This smooth as smooth can get composition features a compelling story at its core coupled Phillip’s own unique storytelling vocal that features flashes of Vandross and Jarreau to these ears. Backed by an ensemble of skillfully soulful singers and musicians “Come On” has the sound of the perfect accoutrement for a gathering of #Growns.
