New single from Brandon McCrae captures new sound of ‘hip pop’

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW!

PRINCE GEORGE COUNTY, MD – Brandon McCrae is the total package. This hip hop artist from Prince George’s County in Maryland writes, produces, mixes and masters all of his own music. And he has developed such a one-of-a-kind sound that people all along the East Coast have been sitting up and paying attention to.

His newest single, “Nightmares and Dreams,” is a mixture of hip hop and pop underneath an upbeat, fast-tempo groove that invites listeners into a good time. Self-described as a “catchy vibe,” the single is something that came from his attempt to combine multiple genres into one hard-hitting song that would put people in a groove and give them a good time.

McCrae has been producing since he was in high school. He also started battle rapping in high school, and by college had developed a unique sound to the point where he started selling his beats. He made a name for himself, first at North Carolina Central University and then at
Morgan State University. That name has continued to grow to more fans all along the East Coast as he has continued to create hit after hit.“When I decided to become a Do-It-Yourself artist, I needed to learn how to mix, so I left Morgan State University and went to Full Sail University and joined the recording arts programs,” he said. “Since then, I have built a catalog which I am ready to release. 



My production and my flow set me apart from anybody else out there. My production is elaborate and intricate. I definitely have my own style, and I like to combine different styles so you can get the best of every world. I want to be known for being able to do it all – mixing, producing, writing. A lot of music sounds the same today and I want people to be able to distinctively tell my music apart because of the quality.”

McCrae not only writes, produces and mixes all of his music, but he also plays multiple 
instruments. He plays the drums, violin, piano, guitar, and a variety of other instruments whenever the mood strikes. He’s inspired by stories from life – whether his own stories or those of people who come in and out of his life. Sometimes his lyrics talk about the up and downs of life but more often than not, his music has a message paired with “just good music.” He aspires to leave an impact on the world in ways similar to his inspirations - Kanye West, Chain Smokers, Lost Kings and Chance the Rapper.

In addition to “Nightmares and Dreams” which dropped July 12, McCrae is working on an EP that he plans to release later this fall.
