SFPL Artist Spotlight: DeAndre Brackensick – “I’m Not The Only One” (Sam Smith Cover)



In a world completely saturated with viral videos, it’s hard to remember any of them after 15 minutes. However, this viral sensation is going to get more than 15 after getting the recognition he deserves. DeAndre Brackensick is his name and he is a former American Idol contestant with a very unique voice of raw emotion and precise riffs. Paired with creativity, melodic runs and harmonies tight enough to make you want to holler, he WILL be your next obsession! Yes! He is that good!

After his run on American Idol where he made it to the top 12, he decided to start working on his own music. He recorded his first single “Her Crazy” released in 2013. Fortunately, for us it didn’t just stop at studio recording. DeAndre hopped on social media using various video recording apps and has created his own collection of covers good enough to make you say, “Maxwell who?” Yes, the talented singer was and still is quite compared to the legendary R&B singer to this very day, and DeAndre accepts that. It’s almost like DeAndre is secretly the “secret child” of Maxwell and Beyonce, but we just don’t know it! Could you imagine??!
Like, take a look at this pic below….

If you are unfamiliar with his voice, take a moment and listen to his recent Sam Smith cover of the hit single “I’m Not The Only One”:

Gary Clark JR. sings about the downside of love in his new visual for “Numb” off his debut album Blak and Blu. It’s easy to see why he is drawing comparisons to the late great Jimi Hendrix with his guitar skills and voice. Gary Clark Jr. also played for President Barack Obama at the white house, opened up for The Rolling Stones, impressed music’s royal couple Beyonce and Jay-Z at the Made in America music festival and played with Alicia Keys and Maxwell for their “Fire We Make” duet. He has also performed with the legendary roots band and you can catch him at their 6th Annual Roots Picnic June 1st. Step into Gary Clark Jr’s visual for “Numb” below.

New Music: Raheem DeVaughn – “Fire We Make” (Freestyle)

Raheem DeVaughn has been quite busy these days and is showing no signs of letting up. He hits us with another joint, a freestyle of  Alicia Keys record “Fire We Make“. I’m definitely feeling this joint more so than his version of Trinidad James hit record “All Gold Everything“. Safe to assume Raheem is slowly preparing us for an album this year and we are definitely not mad at that at all. Check out Raheem’s version of “Fire We Make” below.
