About this project


Pre-order Jeff Brodnax's new 7 song extended EP now! ....Plus extra cool exclusive J.B. stuff!

So as you and I know, a new studio recording is way overdue for me and for the past 2 years I have been writing some awesome new music that I would love to share with you. The good news is I have actually recorded 2 new songs that came out just the way i wanted. Originally, they were supposed to be demos to shop in the hopes of finding an Indie label, but now I have decided to release a record on my own simply because the music is swimming in my head, ready to burst out of my heart, and it needs to be released!
OK! So this is where you come in! Through pre-orders and donations I can make this recording happen properly and with quality. I have been very lucky to find two amazing people to help record at a reasonable price in a first class studio "Greg and Elizabeth Schoenborn" http://www.ravensworthstudios.com/ Check it out.
My ultimate goal is to record, launch, and promote/market this album with some quality mixing, mastering, and musicians while having you all be a part of this journey. If you take a glance to the right of the screen i dreamt up a load of fun exclusive rewards in return for your support! I am extremely psyched and can't wait to get started on one bad ass record for your ears!

Let's see if we can reach that pledge!!!

thank you all for supporting me for as long as you have and thanks for your help with this recording in advance. I will make you proud

Jeff Brodnax

For those that don't know my story here is a bit of history!.............................................................

Many independent artists make the claim that their music is truly universal in appeal, but veteran rock soul singer/songwriter Jeff Brodnax has the frequent flier miles to back it up. Since venturing into solo territory after spending the 90s in the funk/rock groups 24-7 Spyz and Egypt, the Norfolk raised, NYC based multi-talented artist has performed in New York, Prague, Japan and Korea—and recorded his dynamic and heartfelt new album Forcing Me To Bend in Paris at ArtsSonor Studios, in part with producer and mixer Bob Ebeling, whose array of all-star credits include Rufus Wainwright, Eminem, Rob Tyner and Kid Rock.

While enduring powerful emotional changes over the years, Brodnax’s musical sensibilities have shifted significantly over the years. As a singer with the NYC based 24-7 Spyz, he sang everything from funk and rock to old school soul, reggae and ska. As one of the key songwriters with the Northern Virginia-Washington, D.C. based Egypt later in the 90s, it was all about the funk rock. At the heart of his solo songs are compelling lyrics and acoustic soul rock melodies and passionate harmonies which have captivated listeners all over the world. Many compare the vibe of his lyrics to those of the late Jeff Buckley and Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, while musically, Brodnax—whose rich, nuanced dreamy vocals flow over mellow funky rhythms--is influenced by a fascinating combination of legendary artists: Nina Simone, Sly Stone, hardcore punk rockers Bad Brains, The Cocteau Twins, the indie rock trio Blonde Redhead and Led Zeppelin.
