If you’ve been wondering if rock ‘n roll has truly been put to death by today’s fabricated, widget-like stars “popping” out of the woodworks, rest assured that you will find the phoenix not only rising out of but bursting forth from Macon, GA-raised, Nashville, TN-based rock n’ roll singer-songwriter Rick Brantley.

Brantley, writes, plays, and sings his Southern angst filled rock with the heart, soul and body of a young Bruce Springsteen or Kris Kristofferson. Brantley’s songs address the same timeless issues that his protégés addressed in the 60’s and 70’s: the confusion and longing inherent in lovelorn youth, political and racial injustice, and a search for meaning in a world that offers harsh judgments but few solutions…while throwing a whole lot of rock n’ roll swagger and fun in for good measure.

In keeping with the true rock n’ roll concert tradition of his heroes, a Rick Brantley performance is packed to the gills with action. One moment Rick’s fingers are hammering across the keyboards as he’s belting out lyrics with a Bob Seger-like frenzy, and his full band is pounding down the house to keep up with him. Next, Rick is center stage shucking, jiving, wailing, strapped into his electric guitar, and the next moment he’s back at the keys, under spotlight, crooning out a ballad that will break your heart. His audience is always riveted.

Rick Brantley is fire and brimstome, flesh and faith, a blue collar and a broken heart. A reason to believe.
