Premiere: Brandon Whyde // Come To Jesus

Brandon Whyde

I would often walk into a Fountain Square bar and there would sit Brandon Whyde…relaxed, beyond cool, smiling and being smiled back at by the prettiest lady in the room. I couldn’t help but admire his aesthetic. He was (is) cool, but he was also, maybe surprisingly to some, shy and kind, and if you broke through with a little effort, easy to talk to to.

Whyde is a soulful singer-songwriter with a penchant for mourning and reflection. His whiskey-infused voice tells tales that sometimes will make you weep and other times will make you holler in celebration. He’s seen his fair share of success, in his early career. He’s opened for the likes of Dwight Yoakam, Sturgill Simpson, Lady Antebellum, and Nathaniel Rateliff, and he even sang at Emmy Award-winning actress Katherine Heigl’s wedding.

Whyde ultimately decided to leave Indianapolis. He headed to the greener musical pastures of Nashville, Tennessee to create his third album, “Silver Apples of the Moon,” which he’ll release on September 19th. When he wasn’t working on the album, he was co-writing songs with Grammy-winning country songwriter Clint Lagerberg and modern Americana music stars Jamie Kenney, Tony Lucca and Stone Aielli.

Whyde’s new album was recorded with Grammy-winning producer Jimmy Nutt in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, and it includes some of the veteran musicians who helped The Shoals earn acclaim as a hotbed of musical talent. Spooner Oldham, who played keyboards on Percy Sledge’s “When a Man Loves a Woman,” and Bob Wray, who’s played bass on more than 30 #1 country hits, are just a few of the artists appearing on “Silver Apples of the Moon.” Today, we premiere the first song and video from the album, “Come To Jesus.”
