5Q2 - 5 QUICK QUESTIONS WITH BRANDON RHYDER

Brandon Rhyder has been a staple in the Texas music scene for over a decade. He is one of those artists that does his thing and does it well. He isn't out to reinvent the wheel with every album or buy into every "what's hot right now" song trend. You won't find many party songs or too many girl in a truck references in his music. His music is now like it was from the very beginning. Simple, timeless, well written and effortlessly classy. In a review that I wrote for another website after the release of his latest single "Leave" I said that Rhyder has managed to set a new standard and I firmly believe that today. The song brought him another hit on the Texas music charts and the video for it is below.




Brandon took some time out of his busy day to answer our 5 random as hell questions (which will be updated next round) and was a great sport about it.
