The new and up-coming artist, Brandon Albano from Yakima, WA is a Classic Rock driven musician who has just finished his debut, full length, 15 song album— "A Story to Tell" —releasing on August 5, 2017. 

He has had success with his two previous single releases, "U.G.L.Y." (You've Gotta Love Yourself)—a National Suicide Awareness Foundation Sponsored music video featured on YouTube—and "This is My Life".

In high hopes to share his story with the public, Brandon is performing his debut album in its entirety with an all new original band at Yakima's very own 4th Street Theatre.

Each song speaks of life, love, loss and everything in between. Sharing this album live and in an intimate space will help people see the light at the end of the tunnel, and leave that night with their own Story To Tell.
