I’d like to introduce you to an amazing Austin, TX based singer-songwriter I just started working with named Brandon Kinder who goes by the moniker The Wealthy West (http://www.facebook.com/thewealthywest), and who is the singer for indie-darling group The Rocketboys (http://www.facebook.com/therocketboys).
As the enigmatic singer for The Rocketboys, Brandon Kinder has set himself apart as a powerful songwriter with a unique voice and a knack for telling stories through song. Through the success and loyal following The Rocketboys have built over the years, Brandon has captivated audiences through four acclaimed albums and prominent TV and film placements. In his spare time, Brandon began writing songs that wouldn’t necessarily fit for The Rocketboys, and without a true outlet for them, The Wealthy West was born.
The Wealthy West trades The Rocketboys’ anthemic indie rock for a serious dose of Americana coupled with Kinder’s signature eccentricity weaved in with tales of bad choices, long roads, longing for home and the banality of love.
The Wealthy West released their eponymous 5-track debut EP in March. They are currently planning dates in the South and on the West Coast.
