🚨UNRELEASED MUSIC ALERT🚨

With 58 hours left, I'm posting a demo of a song called "Zombies" so you can hear Brushy WITH A BAND! It gets lonely sometimes playing with just one string.

On my record I want to have other players and work with a producer and bring the vision to life!!! Thank you for your support everybody. Read more about my project below!

Bless,

Brushy One String

👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿 

Hello. My Name is Brushy One-String.

When I was a kid, I had a dream...a vision...that I was given a ONE string guitar, and somehow, not only could I play it, but I would someday reach the world with it. Today, that dream has come true, I have these songs and these videos on YouTube, many with millions of views, and the world keeps asking for more. 

Some people know me, but I have this big music dream. So it’s like— what’s the next step?  

 I'd like to make a new record, along with other musicians a renowned producer and a band. 

Usually it’s just me, and my voice, and of course my one string. But I feel like the fans, and me, are ready for the next step. 

My life has been hard. A parentless, poor child in Jamaica was a struggle that follows me to this day. My biological father, aka Freddie McKay, left his musical imprint on Jamaica’s music legacy, and my mother Beverly, left me at a young age to tour with Tina Turner and I didn’t see her again until literally 26 years later, when I moved to England for a short time as a young adult. 

So back in Jamaica and with nothing more than a one-string guitar and my voice, hoping to make an impact, I made a short appearance on a local TV show called “Rising Star". I was unfortunately left with no help to build upon it and use that momentum, so I slowly begun slipping into oblivion. 

Yet, one day, something happened that changed my destiny forever. I met a filmmaker named Luciano Blotta who decided to film me singing my song “Chicken in The Corn” for his documentary, "RiseUp". When he left the island, he released his movie and published my video on YouTube. 

The rest, as they say, is history. 

Now surpassing 25 MILLION views, the video and all that followed allowed my message and my music to spread through every nation. 

My first 'studio' album, “DESTINY”, was recorded in Argentina with very simple resources and few instruments or players. The same approach was used for the second album, “No Man Stop Me”. I then managed to tour here and there, as much as getting the visas was an option, but for the most part I was spending my time in Jamaica trying to communicate with the world.

MUSIC MAKE THE WORLD GO 'ROUND

There’s so much music waiting to come out of me and I plan to take it as far as you out there helps me take it. When this project ends, I’m gonna use whatever's there to make a record. 

It might be a little, or it might be a lot, which means we can do even more with the music. 

Many things I simply cannot do on my own... 

PROJECT GOALS & REWARDS:

Fortunately, I’ve recently been granted a visa for England, so that's where I am headed this Summer. For this new record, I plan to work with English producer Prince Fatty, a man who believes in me and wants to help bring a new vision to reality. I met him on my recent visit to England along with his stellar team of bassist Dub Judah and drummer Horseman, both legends in their own rights. The chemistry was instant and together we’re hoping to put together a musical album that will help people love, laugh, dance, and hopefully be inspired. 

The most important thing to me is to make the best sounding recording of my life. I want to have a great product to share with the world, but this project can only happen if we meet a minimum goal of $10,000.

Kickstarter is an "ALL OR NOTHING" platform, so if we raise $9,999 dollars by the end of the campaign, NO ONE gets charged and NO new music is made.

At the $10,000 level, we can start by recording TWO NEW SONGS while in England and everyone who backs the project will get the reward package they chose. If you're unfamiliar with how Kickstarter works, watch my video below or click here and read all about it.

Risks and challenges

As with all products, there could be production delays. However, Brushy will keep everyone updated throughout the entire process.

I'm hoping for enough support to allow us to release as MUCH new music as possible, exactly the way I envision it. I'm so proud of these songs and can't wait to share them with the world!

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
