Per their press release: “Drop by Backfire this Friday as we Present: Billy Brandt . Billy is well known in Seattle for his gritty Lounge act… we are super excited for him to appear here at the pub. Billy Brandt is a singer, guitarist, and composer whose music has working-class appeal that radiates masculine charm and chutzpah. He has a voice like dark roasted coffee with a hint of cream.”
Raised in Hanover, MA, Brandt now lives in the Pacific Northwest. A mainstay on the Seattle music scene, he performs regularly in clubs all around the city. Brandt is a storyteller, both as a singer and composer, somewhat in the tradition of Tom Waits, though with a more refined and nuanced voice.
He released his third CD, “CITY NOIR” in April 2019. It follows his 2011 release “The Ballad of Larry’s Neighbor” and “Get it Going,” released in 2016.
