Randal Branham takes a singer-songwriter approach to alternative rock music and creates a genre that is almost completely his own. The Central Florida-based singer will release his new album, Simple, this week.
Branham, who is a product of the local region’s aerospace, technology — and fishing — hub, creates memorable music that reflects his upbringing. There are still places on this planet that have kind people who are considerate of others.
Branham’s piano melodies and vocals are noteworthy and reflect his life along the Indian River, a mere bridge-length away from the Atlantic, on this new release.
Branham’s album, Simple, is comprised of 15 compelling tracks, produced in collaboration with Alberto Ochoa.
It’s amazing how varied the songs are, ranging from the deep, thoughtful cuts like “Who’s is this Lady,” “Last Hour” and “Man to Man” to the high-energy “Go Out.” The energetic tune, “Walking,” is his lead single.
Check out ‘Walking’ here:
The “Walking” video was produced by Albert Ochoa on VadaVinyl label and was directed by Karluca Prieto. The song was written by Branham and Craig Stroupe.

Branham is no stranger to accolades. He sang the pride anthem “Man to Man” to 50,000 attendees in Orlando, close to his home in Central Florida. He won the Billboard Song Contest award for “Kid,” he got the Billboard Honorable Mention for “Wonderful,” and he took the International Song Writers Guild award for “Kid.”
In addition, Branhan performed twice at Florida Music Festival and performed twice at Winter Garden Music Festival.
