Last night songwriter, artist and producer Blanco Brown took the stage at Bowery Electric to perform an exclusive showcase hosted by his record label Broken Bow Records. His debut song “The Git Up” is going viral, highlighting the catchy nature and fun dance moves reminiscent of The Cha Cha Slide, The Macarena or even going further back, The Electric Slide.
At last night’s showcase, Brown kicked the night off after a warm and humbling welcome from BBR Music Group’s EVP, Jon Loba. He told the story of the first time he met Brown and how different and exciting he thought his music was. Brown told Loba, “I want music without classification, music without borders.”
For traditional country fans, Brown’s music may stretch the genre too far past the limits however, his talent is undeniable. He opened his set with Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come” and from the moment he hit the chorus, his silky smooth vocals captivated the intimate crowd. He then performed the songs from his debut, self titled EP including “Georgia Time”, “Ghett Ol Memories”, and “TN Whiskey”.
For anyone willing to continue to support the genreless music movement, Blanco Brown’s tunes are catchy and you won’t be able to stop bopping your head to his unique beats. While “The Git Up” is the very first introduction, the artist manages to introduce a new subgenre to the country music umbrella, what he likes to call “Trailer Trap”.
