Brandon Heath's music is influenced by his hometown of Nashville, TN. Most of the music that inspires him today is made by Nashvillians like Ryan Adams, Josh Rouse and Matt Wertz. When he began playing guitar and writing songs as a 13-year old, it was thoughtful songwriters like Sting, Shawn Colvin and David Wilcox who inspired him the most. That and the Bluebird Café, a legendary Nashville hotspot for songwriters.
"Music, for me, has always been about the songwriting," Heath says. For him, songwriting is a lifestyle, not merely a necessity of building a pop career. Therefore, he's destined to be a power player in the music scene for years to come.
Don't Get Comfortable is Heath's major label debut, and it is the culmination of all of his years studying the songwriting greats. Super-producer Dan Muckala (Backstreet Boys, Nick Lachey, The Afters) uses his pop music dexterity to mold earthy songwriting into the stellar sound that rises above the clutter of mindless radio pop without losing its larger than life hooks. With its intelligent pop pre-eminence, Don't Get Comfortable is an album sure to be only the first chapter for Brandon Heath, the truest of songwriters who has finally taken his rightful place behind the mic.
