Calling his music ”progressive folk fusion,” but that doesn’t do it justice. Clearly, Rodney Branigan has invented a new genre –– one that blends rock, folk, flamenco, madrigal, classical, bluegrass and jazz –– and, it all works. Most songs are instrumentals that are driving, thumping monsters. The vocal pieces are just as strong with Branigan playing music so compelling that you have to listen to it. It stuns the audience and hushes the room… even in a bustling L.A. club.

‘Rodney Branigan is one of the most amazing artists you will ever see. Not simply because he’s unique, but rather because he’s impossibly talented. Whether this artist made a deal at the Crossroads, or has preternatural abilities is unknown.’
Music Connection Magazine
Watching Branigan play is a mind-boggling experience. You look for the hard drive, because no musician could do what he’s doing. When no assistance is apparent, you wonder if he’s possessed. Playing three instruments at once, two guitars (a 12-string and 6-string) and a tambourine. His musical facility is so awe-inspiring that he kicks the “novelty” tag right to the curb. This is a real musician with extraordinary talent. Branigan starts the show with one guitar across his knee, another resting vertically against his other leg, and a tambourine under his foot. He not only plays these instruments at the same time, Branigan also uses the guitar bodies for percussion. His sounds have attracted people passing by the club, who probably entered expecting to see a full band. Every single one of them was frozen in disbelief. Jaws dropped as patrons hushed newcomers who were asking, “Who is this guy?” No one wanted to miss a moment.
