"Kane Brown"

When One’s MultiRacial Identity can be a Trump Card in One’s Career: Kane Brown, Not Quite White in a Genre Mainly Associated With White American Artists

Filipinos my age grew up listening to the hits of American country superstars Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, Crystal Gayle, John Denver, and Restless Heart. After that golden era here, only a handful of country artists were able to break through here and most of them were women - Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Alison Krauss, Faith Hill, and Shania Twain. Other than them, it would be difficult for most ordinary Filipinos to know contemporary country acts from America. That is why listening to country music at that early age has led me to make it a lifetime habit, although lately, it has become more off than on. Last decade was the last time I actively listened to American country music due largely to the Dixie Chicks, Lady Antebellum, and Tim McGraw. Last year though, I stumbled into a gem of a country song called What Ifs, located the singer, who turned out to be Kane Brown and made a question mark through my ledft eyebrow when he did not look white to me. Well, country music, as I knew it growing up, is as white as white can be and very rarely have they accommodated multiracial or African-American artists. Darius Rucker is the only other non-white country performer that I know. However, music is evolving everywhere and the idea that Kane Brown who is multiracial, and is still able to sing country music like any other white country singer, is not anymore much of an issue nowadays, at least not to me. Bottom line always in music is, if the music is good, how the singer looks become secondary – and boy, what a great debut album Kane Brown pieced together, singing themes close to the heart of country music – love of family, love of country, and love of freedom.

Coming A Out A Year After His Self Titled Album, Kane Brown (Deluxe Edition) Adds Four More Tracks For Your Modern Country Enjoyment

While I’m not blown away by the sounds of Modern Country, I feel like giving my brotha Kane Brown another spin and revisiting his self titled album now that it adds several songs to the experience. The deep baritone is still intact, and while I have heard some commentators complain that the young man sounds pretty flat here and there, I would say that in the low register where he is most powerful and compelling – and that is his whole modus operandi anyways listening to his catalogue. Vocally speaking, of any of the new artists on the scene, I actually find Kane Brown’s to sound very traditional and masculine, and therefore don’t understand some of the hate, saying he is not Country, etc. Hell – are they even listening to this cat’s serious cowboy drawl? Sometimes it can sound borderline caricature, like actor Sam Elliot singing in a Coen Brothers’ western themed dark comedy. Of course, there are plenty of alternative examples of Kane Brown going the other direction depending on the demands of the track; on “Hometown”, the energy is explosive and club-worthy, with the singer aiming for higher notes on the celebratory hooks which better match the distinct mix of Electronica and Rock rhythm. And on an even poppier example “What Ifs”, Kane Brown can be heard employing both singing high and low styles on one individual track – which may not be my favorite arrangement on Kane Brown (Deluxe Edition), but is definitely a worthy example of his exciting brand of Country Pop. Mind you, this isn’t the type of music that I would personally bump, even if I had a Tacoma truck, but I can certainly see it’s mainstream appeal, as in this regard, most of the tracks get the job done.

Discover All The Hoopla Of Country Pop Sensation Kane Brown By Visiting His Musical Roots On ‘Chapter 1 – EP’

Full disclosure – being mixed myself (Black and White), I have rooted on a purely ‘relatable’ level for the similarly bi-racial Country artist Kane Brown. Why on Earth would any of my interest be based off of race? Because Kane Brown’s ascension is tied to a genre of music that is not without its bigoted moments. Yes, we have the classic success of Charley Pride on the one hand, and the more modern success of Darius Rucker holding Country down while being black, and I actually wouldn’t want to know if any of these two artists hit road blocks because of their ethnicity along the way. All of our mottos should be ‘If it sounds good, enjoy it.’ But being an American, and knowing what Americans are capable of, man, you never know how someone really feels based off of skin color and vernacular. So hell yeah, whether I’m wrong or right, I naturally wanted Kane Brown to succeed, for what could be coined as the progressive movement. I’m all for people of different backgrounds exploring more musical genres than those which are associated with their groups, feel me? When some white dudes truly shine at Funk, or even inadvertently fool the world into thinking that they are a different ethnicity through their sheer respect for the source material (look on the internet for black folks who assumed caucasian Bobby Caldwell was a black singer), by the same theory, black folks with a love for Country can tackle it in with the same respect to its source material. Here, even on this debut album Chapter 1 – EP, Kane Brown resists incorporating your standard R&B Soul vocalization or vernacular, instead choosing to sing low, deep, and twangy just like your favorite old fashioned Country singers. You would never know this young man’s specific background without the accompanying images. He is committed to Country tradition, at least vocally, yet, I am pretty sure that anyone who doesn’t dig him is not responding to anything trivial such as his race, and more so for the very Pop-ified nature of his core songwriting. I actually can stomach these 6 songs when I compare them to most of the trite music I hear within the successful sub genre known as Country Pop, yet, I would be lying if I did not admit that there is something a little shallow about the formulas here on display. Still, for a first effort, this is a noble effort, finding its audience, and paving the way for an already successful career. Old fashioned voice aside, this is the music of now.
