Brayton Bowman releases single “What’s Really Good?”

July 13th, 2016
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
“What’s Really Good?” The New Single From Brayton Bowman Premieres on Ebro Darden’s Beats 1 Show
“The out singer you’ll want to know in 2016.”
– Huffington Post
“There’s finger-snapping, soulful belting, brutally  slamming lyrics, and a bridge that’ll wrap you up in its majesty and never let go.”
– Spin (on single “Real”)
“A danceable groove that takes classic elements of 70s funk and transforms them for modern day. The syncopated electric guitar riffs and heavy drum patters provide the perfect backdrop for Bowman’s velvety vocals.”
– Idolator (on single “Runaway”)
“His up-tempo crooning is underscored by a funky, original beat, elevating the source material into something totally his own.”
 – Complex (on mashup “Justin’s Hotline”)
“Brilliant”
  – Pigeons and Planes (on mashup “Justin’s Hotline”)
“It’s one of those songs where every rhythm, lyric, key change and vocal 
performance flawlessly melds together — and later has you scrambling by song’s end 
to find out the voice behind it.”
– SoulBounce (on single “Jaywalk”)

About Brayton Bowman:
Brayton Bowman has an energy that is highly contagious. Sitting in a café on Melrose Avenue, you’d think you’ve known him for years but truth is, you’ve only just met. Born on Friday the 13 th in Philadelphia, his energy reeks of street-rat slam poets and city-slicker sentiment. It made sense that he found refuge in The Philadelphia High School for Creative & Performing Arts. Studying classical and choral music rigorously and dabbling in musical theatre, his high school days laid the foundation for his artistic identity.  Upon graduating, he moved up to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music where he overdosed on Jazz Theory and ultimately, decided to take some time off to write his own original music.  High on the notion that he could create whatever he wanted, Brayton packed his bags and moved to New York City. The move proved to be the right one for him. Within months of moving, he released his first debut EP. Splitting his time between Upper Manhattan and East London, Brayton spent every last penny on plane tickets to get to his studio sessions.  After months of traveling, he dropped his sophomore EP.  Currently residing in Los Angeles, Brayton continues to bounce back and forth to London whenever he can.  Anything but disingenuous, Brayton’s personality candidly shines through on all of his music. You will fall in love at first listen and with your breath having been sufficiently baited; you’ll wait patiently for more.
