Brandyn Burnette

It’s been a little over a month since this soulful St. Louis-based artist released “Down,” and the enchantment that fans felt upon their first listen is being revived. This time, though, they’re getting to experience it’s engaging charm visually, as we offer up a first look at the official music video.

If you haven’t heard of this midwest-born progressive soul singer, you’ll surely be more in tune after today. Brandyn Burnette comes from an esteemed lineage of musicians, following in the footsteps of his father who was an R&B singer himself, on Capitol Records. Having appeared on the Billboard charts in the 1980s with hits like “The Gigolo,” it’s easy to see both how Brandyn was influenced through the years, and where his talents came from.

After his musical upbringing, he was offered a full ride to NYU on a musical scholarship, which eventually led to the gorgeous mix of genres you’re experiencing now. This song, as expected, is one that’s close to his heart. Check out what he had to say about it.

“Down” is a song for the fans, it is a song for my girl, it is a song to my friends, peers & collaborators. But more importantly & if I’m being completely honest, it’s a song to myself. I was going through changes as an artist & embracing my darkness out in the open with my artistry for the first time. I guess that’s kind of what inspired the visual as well.

Below you’ll find the captivating lyric video that will have you following along with the words in no time. Press play and get ready to sing along.
