Brandon Jarod "The Crush"
Watch on YouTube
Brandon Jarod and his band performed at the 45 Degrees Martini Lounge in
Chesapeake, Virginia on January 11, 2011. The band includes Tyrone
Jordan on bass, Brian Athens on drums, and Brandon singing vocals and
playing guitar. The video is a live performance of the song "The Crush"
from the album/EP of the same name, which is available on iTunes and
Amazon. The song, which is a slow tempo mix of pop, rock, and R&B,
is about relationships. "The Crush" speaks to the darker side of love in
which there is pain, with lyrics that include the statements: "True
love gets hard sometimes," "I'm going to make you beg for mercy," and
"Going to find my revenge on Valentine's". It's a moving performance by
Brandon and company, though somewhat hard to hear at times. Brandon
showcases his talent as a guitarist with a nice solo that adds just the
right touch to a heartfelt composition.
