Brandon Husken spent years as a drummer in Michigan’s music scene before growing weary from past stalled musical endeavors. That’s when he decided to change his musical direction and began songwriting and composing music in a more personal setting. Songs began to flow, which turned the idea of beginning his own project into reality.
Husken’s songs draw from experience. “It’s a look into what has been and could be.” “The very notion that songs and their meanings can be conveyed in so many different ways to so many different people, is the reason I’ve continued to do it.” “It’s the magic that happens when you listen to a song, it’s similar to a spiritual encounter.” “The same way a person of faith reads their Bible and applies the messages to their lives, a similar encounter happens when hearing a song’s message conveyed.” “The song brings out an emotion in the listener that was already there.” “In reality, music helps release what you already are dealing with, even if the lyrical content has a different meaning.” “Conversely, that’s the difference in comparing music and bible reading, one is speaking direct truth, the other can be subjective.” “However, both cause you to personally relate.”
