Napa, California-based singer/songwriter John Brazell is a joyful troubadour with acoustic/pop sensibilities. His new single, “Peaches,” is a half-pop-half-acoustic vibe that covers a vast amount of sonic landscape.
“At the end of the day, I want to be somebody you think of who sings and writes really great songs,” Napa, California-based singer/songwriter John Brazell says. He’s an acoustic pop folk storyteller with an easygoing demeanor, an entertainer who offers up comical banter from the stage and enjoys chatting with his fans. Brazell is most likely to take the stage in a T-shirt and jeans, and very little pretense of being anything other than a guy who likes singing songs."
Brazell likes to put himself out there, musically, too. “The way I kind of describe it to people is that songwriting is kind of like looking at a painting and describing what I’m seeing. I’ll get an emotion and get some imagery in my head, whether it’s a story or an experience that I went through…I just sing my feelings and thoughts.”
When he’s not recording or writing songs, he’s playing at a variety of venues from college campuses and coffeehouses to bars and wineries. Brazell says his music speaks to “Probably people in my age bracket, 18-35, people who are starting life, figuring out life. My goal would be to reach a wider audience, the idea would be everybody is welcome, but realistically I do have a bias to a more youthful, unsettled worldview.”
