Brandon Payton-Carrillo and The Love is Loud!!

Brandon Payton-Carrillo is a singer-songwriter from Milwaukee. After years of polishing his craft in the local scene, Brandon abandoned his former group, the Blackberries, upon completion of his third full-length studio album "The Breakup." The new group has begun performing nation-wide under the name "The Love Is Loud!!" For tour dates and album release news, visit the band's official Web site --
The Breakup was produced, performed and written by Brandon Payton-Carrillo in a dingy Warehouse in the Bayview neighborhood of Milwaukee. The recording sessions were engineered by local prodigy Jamison Thorwald. The Breakup is a concept album that explores love won, lost, and redeemed. Stylistically, “The Breakup” spans a wide variety, from the Smithsesque rocker that is ” Belvidere”, the muscular funk of ”Amazing!!”, majestic post-punk of “My Sweetheart the Drunk” to the Brilliant pop of “Lonely Days” and “I Live to Adore You”.
Brandon and the Love is Loud!! have played San Francisco’s Grant and Green Tavern, Athens Georgia’s Farm 255, and about 30 cities in between. The love is Loud on their first southern tour incited dance parties in Memphis TN at Murphy’s, New Orleans’ Checkpoint Charlie’s and Lexington KY’s Green Lantern Tavern. Once the band hit the west coast, an expressive and more seasoned sound emerged. The crowd in the legendary Lion’s Liar in Denver, Colorado was some of the first to bear witness to this artistic growth. By time the tour made it to Bozeman, Montana’s Filling Station the band had eased into its newly found professionalism.
Since the completion of “The Breakup” , Brandon also began writing for other Artist such as Ashleyyy, a girl group signed to HipHopucit Music Group/Island/ Def Jam Records. Ever the prolific writer, Brandon’s hard work has sowed the seeds of perpetuating his brand of intensely sincere music.
The music stylistically blends the rhythms soul music with the brooding textures of post-punk into something uniquely Milwaukee. Lakebeat is the common verbiage used by the band to express the quality within their music. Only from the shores of Lake Michigan could this sound emerge.
