Alt-Folk Songwriter Brandon Jenner Releases New EP ‘Oversized Soul’ Via Nettwerk

September 7, 2022 BY George Chammas

Los Angeles singer, songwriter, and producer Brandon Jenner released his triumphant new EP Oversized Soul. The six-song release sees Brandon blend an array of moods and styles, from sizzling summer rock to lush country-folk with a little blues to hold it all together. Brandon’s honest lyricism is the throughline as he shares his experiences with soulful energy that permeates every note. Listen to Oversized Soul on all digital retailers (here).

Brandon tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview: “We all have this spectrum of emotions that we go through, and I think my music tends to be a reflection of that. I don’t really stick into just one style of music because I’m not just continuously depressive or continuously happy. I’m kind of all over the map emotionally, and so I end up just making music that reflects that.”

“Little moments inspire me to write,” he affirms. “I’ve gotten better at whittling my life down to the most important things, which are my family, music, and self-care. I don’t really do anything that doesn’t contribute to strengthening one of those three. Playing music in so many genres satisfies me the most. It’s an outlet for all of my emotions.”

Along with the new EP, Brandon Jenner shared the live performance video for “I’m Over Who You Think You Are,” which sees Brandon playing every instrument from guitar to chain-links, hand percussion to NERF gun. With clever and intricate layering, Brandon illustrates the depth of his creativity.

Brandon Jenner constantly tunes into the inspiration around him. Whether it be philosophical questions posed by his children, moments of missing his wife, or nightmares dreams she destroyed his beloved truck, his music absorbs life’s everyday wonders and nuances. As such, the Los Angeles-born singer, songwriter, and producer paints a rich picture of the important things—what it means to be a good dad, good husband, good brother, and good son.

This picture comes into full focus on his 2022 Oversized Soul EP.

“Little moments inspire me to write,” he affirms. “I’ve gotten better at whittling my life down to the most important things, which are my family, music, and self-care. I don’t really do anything that doesn’t contribute to strengthening one of those three. Playing music in so many genres satisfies me the most. It’s an outlet for all of my emotions.”

He’s only opened up more and more over the years with each subsequent project. The world first heard his voice in the duo Brandon & Leah. However, he introduced himself as a solo artist with 2016’s Burning Ground EP led by the title single “Burning Ground.” Amassing tens of millions of streams, he released a string of fan favorite projects such as the Face The World EP [2018], Plan On Feelings EP [2019], So Childish EP [2020], and Short of Home EP [2021]. In addition to praise for Short of Home from Artist WavesCalifornia Rocker, and more, American Songwriter proclaimed, “Together, these songs reveal the through-line of authenticity in Jenner’s storytelling that makes Short of Home the truest testament to his artistry yet.” Throughout 2021, he pieced together Oversized Soul, writing, recording, and mixing at his own studio.
