The "Real" CD release party will be at Sidetracks in Huntsville, Alabama, on October 20, 2017. It'll be a standout concert, which you'll want to attend anyway, but as an added bonus, we're giving away a REAL guitar as a door prize to one lucky winner!

Brandon Worthey first became interested in the guitar after watching some kids perform southern rock in a talent show at his middle school in the small town of Capshaw, Alabama. He got his first guitar for his 14th birthday and has been an aspiring musician and songwriter ever since.

He grew up across the road from his grandfather’s general store where a musician by the name of Coleman Emerick hung out. Brandon would take his flattop guitar after school and ask Coleman to play songs like "Nine Pound Hammer" and "Wildwood Flower" on it. Coleman obliged and showed Brandon what the chords looked like.

Brandon’s love for music has continued to grow stronger in every aspect of his life. In 2004 he spent a big part of his year playing with various musicians on Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee. He has been immersed in the music scene in Huntsville, Alabama for nearly half of his life, as he started playing clubs when he was still a teenager. Today he continues to write songs and hone his skills as a guitarist. He is a working musician and enjoys playing music--as much as he can, anywhere he can.
