John Brannen emerges from the south bearing witness to the people, places, and experiences that have shaped his life. These songs are musical snapshots -- alive with depth, perception, and clarity. They are about growth, passion, disappointment, and hopefulness -- all imbued with the richness of his heritage, and at times, a lick of wry southern humor.

"John Brannen is a stupendously special singer/songwriter. This wholly original artist sounds like he's got real red blood in his veins, real brains in his head and real music in his heart."
Robert K. Oermann, DiscClaimer
"Every inch the rock'n'roll romantic, Brannen could be a 19th century buccaneer or a Parisian poet. His background is almost as colorful."
Robert K. Oerman, The Tennessean - Nashville
"A major force both as a writer and a performer"
Tony Kiss, Asheville Citizen Times
"Brannen is one of the great talents on the current musical scene. His songs are haunting. Most are meditative, rather somber pieces in minor keys, and they evoke mythic cowboy life and a "rootless road" existence. I love his singing. His voice ranges from a high pitched tenor howl to a consoling sonic syrup-like cactus-and-honey, maybe with a little sagebrush dusted over it. It evokes wide skies, empty fields, lonely porches and solemn sunsets. It hankers for lost love. Brannen is the real thing".
Robert T. Jones, Charleston Post and Courier
