Atlas Music Publishing announces the addition of blues harmonica star Brandon Santini to its expanding roster of talented artists signed to an exclusive global music publishing deal. With a resurgence of young blues artists, Brandon has the talent to be included in conversation with the likes of James Cotton, Dennis Gruenling, Paul Butterfield, and Kim Wilson to name a few. With a classic blues base and a present-day flare, Brandon first picked up the harmonica at age 15 back home in North Carolina before relocating to Memphis years later where he would absorb the rich musical history of the city as well as play the legendary clubs on Beale Street.
Brandon comes to Atlas with three full-length studio albums. In January of 2015, he released Live & Extended! Recorded in Quebec’s upscale concert venue, le Petit Impérial, you can hear a packed house respond enthusiastically to Santini’s raw blues power for his entire set, causing fans and critics to label him as one of the most quickly-rising blues stars of his generation. That talent continues to show through his near-constant presence at the Blues Music Awards, most recently nominated in 2016 in the categories of, “Instrumentalist-Harmonica” and “Contemporary Male Blues Artist.”
“I caught Brandon playing on Beale Street while I was in Memphis. He was just jaw-dropping. Some of the best blues I’ve ever heard and a wicked harmonica player. It was a no brainer for us to bring him to Atlas, where it is all about the highest quality artists,” said Richard Stumpf, Founder/CEO, Atlas Music Publishing.
"It's an honor to now be part of such a successful and hard working team like Atlas. I am extremely proud and grateful for the opportunity to be their first Blues artist," enthuses Santini.
