Genre-bending BBR artist Blanco Brown has released his self-titled debut EP. The songwriter, producer (Fergie, Childish Gambino, Chris Brown, Kane Brown), vocalist and multi-instrumentalist affectionately calls his music “TrailerTrap.” The EP is inspired by his youth in Atlanta and splitting his time in rural Georgia during the summers, and draws upon the rawness and storytelling abilities of his two biggest musical influences, Johnny Cash and Outkast.
“I’ve loved country music since I can remember—it’s what makes me happy,” said Brown. “My Atlanta friends never quite understood my passion for it so when I started making my own music, I set out to blend the elements of country that I love with the sounds I’ve been working with to represent who I am and what I listen to.”
“Some of the Country Music’s biggest recent moments have come from collaborations between Country and Urban artists. It’s increasingly evident that fans simply don’t live in just one genre anymore,” said Jon Loba, EVP of BBR Music Group. “That sentiment embodies itself in Blanco Brown who is from Georgia, a place that is home to one of the epicenters of Urban music and incubator for some of Country’s biggest stars. It was only natural that those two communities would influence each other and eventually morph into a sound and genre drawing upon the best of both worlds. Like The Allman Brothers Band, Otis Redding, and Jason Aldean who came before, Blanco is part of a rich Georgia tradition that not only bends genres but eventually defines them.”
