Legend has it, if musicians spend enough time around the roaring waters of Niagara Falls, they end up making music in various shades of blue.
Brandon Agnew is an independent roots musician. His songwriting is inspired by everyday experiences and shaped by time spent in cities like New Orleans and Memphis.
His latest release, Mave's Variety, is a blues rock album recorded live off-the-floor with friends at Banquet Sound Studio in Toronto. The album is named after a convenience store on James Street in downtown Hamilton where the songs were written.
In 2011, Brandon represented Ottawa at the International Blues Challenge in Tennessee alongside guitarist, Benny Gutman.
He's currently playing shows throughout Ontario and preparing to release a follow-up album called Aquarius Moon.
