Brown, Blanco - Honeysuckle & lightning bugs CD
Blanco Brown, the mastermind behind the viral sensation “The Git Up” announces his debut full-length album, Honeysuckle & Lightning Bugs, will be released October 11 . Inspired by his youth growing up in Atlanta during the school year and rural Georgia during the summers, the album title is a tribute to his split-location upbringing that taught him the value of diversity and uniting people, things and sounds, which ultimately lead to the creation of TrailerTrap, a new genre that fuses hip hop beats with 808’s and traditional Country music.
Honeysuckle & Lightning Bugs is a nod to the bittersweet memories because no matter where he was, in the city projects or the sticks of Butler, the smell of honeysuckle and the mystifying glow of fireflies filled the air, making him feel at home.
Honeysuckle & Lightning Bugs is a full-fledged collection of music that delves deep into this fusion of sound. The music draws upon the rawness and storytelling abilities of his two biggest musical influences, Johnny Cash and Outkast, to seamlessly blend genres, providing the world with the first TrailerTrap album.
