Album Notes
The long awaited release from Brandon Santini features eleven amazing original songs that proove he is still rolling strong! Taken on a musical journey from beginning to end, "Songs of Love, Money, & Misery" is a raw yet refreshing sounding record that embraces Brandon's diverse tastes in music with songs ranging from true Memphis Stax sounds to smokey, sultry jazz to funky bluesy numbers. This album captures an authentic feel of the new wave of Memphis music with several songs sounding as if they were straight from 1964!
Brandon has obviously absorbed the sounds and soul of the city andthe delta since moving to Memphis in 2003. This album is a true masterpiece without sounding polished and overproduced, a big hats off to Brandon for taking the old school, raw, analog approach to recording "Songs of Love, Money, & Misery," a method that most artists tend to ignore in the current age of digital recording.

There are many different opinions as to what the future of blues harmonica will be. Memphis vocalist and harmonica player Brandon Santini is undeniably a worthy player to keep an eye on as the next decade unfolds. His name is worthy of conversations that involve Jason Ricci, Billy Gibson, Dennis Gruenling, Rick Estrin and other frontline harmonica players that have become part of a new wave in the blues world. With tasteful speed and licks, he combines his respect to traditional blues with a present, colorful style of playing that is often compared to Paul Butterfield, James Cotton, or Sonny Boy Williamson II. Raised in North Carolina, Brandon relocated to Memphis in 2003 where he began to absorb the sounds and culture of the Delta and north Mississippi Hill Country, honing his craft night after night, sweating it out in local Beale Street clubs just like Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, & B.B. King. For seven years, Brandon fronted the Blues Music Award nominated band Delta Highway and has toured relentlessly throughout North America and has visited seven foreign countries (including a 2009 Bluzapalooza tour to Cairo, Egypt) bringing his distinct voice and playing style to music lovers everywhere throughout the world!
