“Life’s messy, I write songs about it. ”
Nashville-based singer-songwriter, Brandon Calano, writes and performs under the alias Becoming Young. A name he says represents the journey to let go of everything we are not, so we can become who we were meant to be all along.
The Colorado native moved to Nashville in the summer of 2019 to pursue music and has since been hailed by Forbes as an artist “brimming with intrigue, angst, and heartbreak,” who is “making waves” in the industry.
Reverie by Becoming Young
Becoming Young deftly fuses, pop, folk, and narrative singer-songwriter genres with authenticity and swagger. His sound spans fizzy Ed Sheeran pop to the dark grandeur of Dermot Kennedy. The music is refreshingly restless, and its narratives capture wonderfully blurred snapshots of self-realization and love.
The urban flavored, electro-pop artist recently released his debut pop album, Feeling Single. The songs have received significant algorithmic support from Spotify, catapulting Becoming Young well past two million streams.
While touring through Seattle in 2019, Calano met with producer Ryan Hadlock (The Lumineers, Vance Joy), and the pair quickly began working on several cuts from Becoming Young‘s winter 2020/21 record, The Songs I Wrote You. This haunting collection has already captivated sold-out, live audiences across the country, and Becoming Young fans are eagerly awaiting the record, which Brandon describes as his most honest offering yet.
