Spawning from the previous emerging music article/review about the exceptionally talented singer/songwriter Brandon McHose, I am happy to let all of this amazing guitarist’s fans know that his latest music video for the song “Just Say When” is now available to watch on YouTube!
Brandon McHose began 2012 with a busy schedule. After moving to Los Angeles, he
experienced large amounts of radio success, was a consistently hot
discussion topic for the music industry's professionals and hard-hitters,
and even started an extensive touring schedule. Yet despite all of that, McHose
still managed to deliver an exceptional video from his debut EP "Late Night"
just for his fans. Directed by Rob Scallon and filmed in his previous stomping grounds of downtown Chicago, “Just Say When” showcases Brandon’s vocal range and fierce guitar-playing talent.
As a friendly-listening and mid-tempo track that is driven by a cool acoustic vibe and passionate vocals, Jivewired.com called the song a "great acoustic rock number with a tight, but spirited acoustic and jazz guitar coactions that really shows Brandon's expertise".
My favourite aspect of the video is the casual, easy-going vibe that it so naturally demonstrates – which is similar to McHose’s musical presence as well. In my opinion, there’s something to be said when a quickly popularizing artist can still simply sit in a chair in their everyday clothing and play good, acoustic music – the sign of a true artist? I think so. The video also closely showcases Brandon’s finger-picking and guitar-strumming talent that he is quickly becoming known for. Lastly, the fact that McHose cuddles with a small Yorkshire terrier at the end of the video seemingly shows that he lives up to the caring and heartfelt personality that much of his music presents and creates.
With a busy touring schedule set for this upcoming summer, check out Brandon McHose’s personal website at www.brandonmchose.com for full show details. You can also find out more about Brandon on his MySpace and Facebook pages, and/or purchase his debut EP “Late Night” on iTunes.
