Best Local Act That Doesn't Have A Record Out Yet

Brandon Zano

Staff Pick

Earlier this year, singer-guitarist Brandon Zano, a veteran of the local music scene, launched a crowd-funding campaign to fund recording for his solo debut, which he's working on with veteran local producer Ben Schigel, a guy who's produced a number of big-name rock acts and currently plays in the up-and-coming alt-rock act SomeKindaWonderful. He's posted a couple of songs online, and tracks such as "Something in the Air" and "I'll Do Anything" feature a balanced mix of electronic and organic instrumentation. Each song has a catchy chorus and sounds like something that could be heard on commercial radio — think the Killers if the music had more of an edge to it.
