|ARTIST OF THE WEEK: TAE BROOKS
OUT OUR EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW HERE!
Tae Brooks is a 16 year old Urban Pop
singer from Cincinatti, Ohio. In a world
where a lot of young artists start out in
the bubblegum pop genre, Tae stands apart
with his R&B style. Another unique
thing about Tae is he's spent the past 3
years doing voiceover work over in Japan
for a program that teaches kids English.
Currently residing in L.A., Tae is looking
to set the world "On Fire" with his debut
EP "On My Own" dropping tomorrow on
HEFFRON DRIVE ROCKS THE HOB ON SUNSET!
House of Blues on Sunset was the place to
be last night as Heffron Drive played a
rocking 15 song set, which had everyone on
their feet dancing the entire time. I
noticed something that surprised me. They
have a diehard fanbase, mainly people in
their mid 20's to early 30's, with an even
split of guys. Quite a change from
BTR's pre-teen girl fanbase. Kendall's
music has matured nicely, while still
keeping that fun energetic vibe we loved.
Heffron Drive kicked things off to a great
start with "Art of Moving On" and kept
things jumping with "Happy Mistakes"
"Passing Time" and "Better Get To Moving".
The duo slowed things down a bit with
"Could You Be Home" and "Had To Be
Panama". Bringing the level back up with
my personal favorite "One Track Mind" and
"Everything Has Changed". "Not Alone" was
another highlight, with pure vocals that
had me, like everyone else, stop
everything and just watch. Next up was a
crowd favorite "Division Of The Heart" and
"That's What Makes You Mine" which was
dedicated to the fans. "Quiet Please" and
"Feels So Good" ended the main show and
the guys waked off. Chants started up
immediately, and much to the crowds
excitement HD came back out. Kendall asked
the crowd "Are you ready to rock out with
us for a few more?" and the response was a
LOUD resounding cheer. They launched into
"Nicotine" and followed that up with
another favorite of mine, "Parallel".
Although I didn't meet the guys this time
around, I did meet Kendall's grandma.
Super sweet lady, we talked about how he's
grown and she thanked me for all my
support. This is the second time I've seen
Heffron Drive, and both shows were
awesome. I believe we'll be hearing a lot
more from this band!
