GUY BRANUM ANNOUNCES NEW COMEDY ALBUM ‘EFFABLE’ AVAILABLE APRIL 14 ON ASPECIALTHING RECORDS

 

GUY BRANUM announces the release of his debut comedy album ‘EFFABLE’ out APRIL 14 on ASPECIALTHING RECORDS.  Recorded live at Nerdmelt Showroom, Guy delivers a hot set in every sense of the word.  Moving through a variety of topics with superb flow, Guy riffs about Canada as American fan fiction, LA vs NYC, apartment dogs, Red Lobster trickery, and he provides an excellent defense of his oft-questioned taste in music.

‘Effable’ is available for pre-order on iTunes  http://apple.co/19xqy4l
and CD http://bit.ly/1CbuiCA

Guy Branum is a writer and comedian best known for his recurring segment “No More Mr. Nice Gay” on Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, serving as “Staff Homosexual” on Chelsea Lately and his performance as Natalie Portman’s sassy gay friend in No Strings Attached.  He’s also appeared on Last Comic Standing, Arsenio, on E!, MTV and he has also written for Punk’d, Another Period, Awkward., Billy on the Street and Fashion Police.

 

“Subtlety isn’t part of the equation for Guy Branum. Formerly a writer and panelist on Chelsea Lately, Branum is a forceful stand-up with a sharp, unapologetically defiant attitude.”Vulture’s 50 Comedians You Should Know in 2015

“He’s a hilarious, larger-than-life gay man who tweets passionately about pop culture, political issues and somewhat notably, #LookingHBO. He also went to law school, so he’s smart and funny (the best combination).”Buzzfeed

KURT BRAUNOHLER STOPS BY LAST CALL TO TALK “ROUSTABOUT”

KAIOYOTE PREMIERES “GHOSTS” VIDEO, ANNOUNCES SXSW DEBUT SUNDAY MARCH 22

Kaioyote_Credit Vision by Kovios_Main copy

Kaioyote sounds like a tortured blues crooner from a bygone era crossed with a contemporary pop diva. Her music is refreshingly deep and complex, and we can’t wait to hear more from this budding artist.” -  BaebleMusic, Artists Not-To-Be-Missed at SXSW

Emerging soul singer KAIOYOTE is premiering the haunting video for album teaser track “GHOSTS” today at BAEBLEMUSIC.com.  The LA-by-way-of-Montana writer and singer who trained under Brenda Lee Eager (backup singer for Ray Charles, Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder) and Lis Lewis (Rihanna, Miguel,  Gwen Stefani) is currently in NYC recording new tracks at Black Wax Creative for her debut LP coming out this summer.  Kaioyote heads to Austin next week where she’ll make her SXSW debut at SXSJ.  This young artist is an old soul who sings well beyond her years.  One to watch!

Hampton cover sm

 

HAMPTON YOUNT announces the release of his new comedy album ‘BEARABLE’ out today on ASPECIALTHING RECORDS.  Recorded live at Nerdmelt Showroom the very night after he taped his debut set on CONAN, the LA-by-way-of DC comedian delivers an unabashedly enthusiastic take on current events, sexuality, depression and the South. Hampton’s high energy and vibrant laughter are absolutely infectious, and his German accent is beyond reproach. A solid hour of edgy and intelligent silliness, ‘Bearable’ is Hampton’s formidible follow up to his debut LP ‘Unbearable.’

‘Bearable’ is available on iTunes  https://t.co/Z6Okt52YeF
