It can easily be said that BRODIE LANE is a direct product of the 2020 pandemic, as venues, tours & the world halted to a complete stop, eviscerating live music & artists’ existence. Formed by Austin, TX veteran songwriter/vocalist/guitarist AJ Vallejo, the band naturally came together by default with the city mostly in shutdown from jam sessions to pass the slowed time with long-time drinking buddies & neighbors, Bruce Castleberry (guitar), Alex Geismar (drums), & Joe Fladger (bass).
An award-winning producer on his own merit, AJ had written & recorded somewhere around 30 life-inspired songs of love & chaos during the shutdown. These songs became the catalyst for the group to start bringing to life with their undeniable chemistry & collective well-versed knowledge on how to build a dangerous musical force. It wouldn’t take long before the public took notice of the band’s determination & grit with their fiery live shows and dominance in music video self-promotion.
Contagious-as-covid tracks ;) like their provocative debut single “Gonna Go” & quarantine-love-anthem, “Stuck With You” are clear indicators that Brodie Lane is the road we all want to be on when the world opens back up again.
