about

Brae Detroit, Michigan

From the throne of a drummer, to standing behind a makeshift cocktail drum kit, Brandon (Brae) Husken has gone from the back of the stage to the front.

Chord shape permutations of sacred geometry, catchy melodies and a rhythm centric approach to song writing, the music is thoughtfully crafted much like paint to canvas.

Track Name: Planks And Haystacks
You thought it out in your mind
You cut it all to decide
You wont fall into line
Leaving the world to the side

You said you’re done with living the dream
Reality’s become obscene
Finding planks in a haystack that you can’t see

Sometimes it’s all just a smile
Even though you can’t disguise
What your feeling inside
Gonna surface somewhere sometime

You said you’re done with living the dream
Reality’s become obscene
Finding planks in a haystack that you can’t see

Bought yourself sometime
Running through haystacks around
Gonna trip on a plank
Never saw it underneath

You fall but will you get up
Before you’re buried in hay
That you once walked upon before you knew

Once inside you thought you’d deal with the pain
But you realize the planks that surround you are big
Much too big to simply step around
and leave for another day
It’s time to come to grips

You said your lost know you’re found
Hit the wall now you’re fine
Removing planks from your life
For, for good

Track Name: Eating At The World
You can be forced all your life
You can be taught what to say
When the chips are down who holds all the cards?

Catching the rooster muzzling its beak
It may crow two times never reach three
When the time comes will you know what you did all your life

You can be tossed to the ground
You can be cornered in the yard
But when push comes to shove, who’s left on their own?

Now I would suppose you’re not the only one
to never know
I’ve got this funny feeling it’s eating at the world
as a whole

How can the things that you say
Ever make sense while you’re biting your lip
When selfishness seems to rule all your words

So you’re confronted what did you do
Is it too much to speak what is true
Do you deny or you follow suit to save your self

All that you worked for and believed
Can be dismissed so casually
But when time comes you won’t be on your own

Now I would suppose you’re not the only one
to never know
I’ve got this funny feeling it’s eating at the world
as a whole

Track Name: Come Back
You said you’re giving up
Come back
You said your race is run
Come back

It’s not over till it’s over
Don’t look back or over your shoulder

You feel you’re forgotten
Come Back
You were always wanted
Come Back

Seems your dreams are deserted
Don’t give up or skirt through the issue

Someone’s paid the price
Come back
You can still live your life
Come back

Seasons may come, and seasons may go
That rivers flowin

Don’t give up on love
Come back
Don’t throw away what is yours
Come back

Seasons may come, and seasons may go
That rivers flowin

Track Name: What's This All About
Hey kid, what you worried bout
Hey now, what’s this all about
What’s this all about kid

What drug you taken now
To take off the edge
Off the edge of life

A beautiful mother
Loves you always
You push her away
Just to get a fix in

What’s this all about kid

Won’t you, open your eyes
To see what’s all around
What’s all around you, kid

Can’t you soften your heart
Before what’s all around
May soon be gone, kid

Beautiful father
Loved you the best way
We all have our problems
So don’t take on his

What’s this all about kid

Hey you, what you worried bout
Hey kid, what’s been on your mind
What’s been on your mind

Track Name: In An Effort To Maintain
In an effort to maintain you throw
Away lives and blame focusing on the now
You cut what once was vital and promising
For a thriving industry
Now are struggling just to see a vision

Perhaps self-inflicted now will be deemed
The gifted
Not realizing their loses will eventually be
Their causes for downsize and demise.

Cut your nose off to spite your face
Is it policy or merely someway to place blame
Desperately seeking someway to save your ship
Throw your passengers over
And hope that some of them will know
To swim

Perhaps self-inflicted now will be deemed
The gifted
Not realizing their loses will eventually be
Their causes for downsize and demise.

Track Name: Omnibus
You’re so caught up with yourself
You don’t have time for the world
You know how to save yourself
And that’s all you really want

You read all the fancy books
Using all their fancy words
But do you know what you say
Or is it just a façade

When they see through you what will you do
What book to turn to for the right words

Everything’s as if it seems
Motion captured in a frame
Pictures you take in your mind
View the world the way you want

Always standing 10 feet tall
Looking down upon the crowd
You’re the same as all of us
One for all an omnibus

Juxtapose you suppose
We’re that different
There you go time will sow
What you’re reaping

Track Name: Best Foot Forward
Just because you put your best foot forward
Doesn’t mean your moving the right way

With all your heart you do what you feel is right
But one thing's for sure you’ll never know if you don’t

All the colors seem to blend
A tapestry of failure, faults and sins

Wake up, the dawn of a new light
Put your best foot forward once again

You feel the same you did two steps back
But you keep on marching just the same

Songs the same, the beat has slightly changed
Now you’re marching to your own drum

All the colors seem to fade
An empty canvas where your dreams once lived

Wake up, the dawn of a new light
Put your best foot forward once again

Track Name: All You Need
You feel if you don’t follow
All you’ll do is wallow
Find your self worth
In things you swallow

Or material things
Things you store and save
When it’s time to leave
Who gets your posessions

All you feel, all you need, all you’ll be for not
It feels wrong, but in time, all you need is love

Can you stop for a moment
And reconsider
How you treat others
Can get you richer

You won’t be the same
Same as yesterday
When all you had
Was all you could muster

All you feel, all you need, all you’ll be for not
It feels wrong but in time all you need is love

You can’t, see, but you can learn how
Nowhere to be, you’re not meant to
No one, you meet, you can’t impact
Nothing you’ve done, can not be undone

Track Name: Pomp and Circumstance
You picked yourself up from the ground
It was so unforgiving
You stumbled back into the fray
That you so selfishly made

For others that felt you would blame it
On the pomp and circumstance
That you yourself thought you could make
If it wasn’t by chance

It’s more than just, it’s more than just words

Why is it always that the ones
That have so much to share
Put themselves up on a stage
Where no one can reach them

Sometimes it’s more than just some words
Written to some music
Sometimes it’s more than what you read
Actions faster than words

It’s more than just, it’s more than just words

You see were made to live a life
Arms stretched, open handed
Forever giving of ourselves
So others may see

That there is more to life than
What it is that we need
But who we’ll be
When it comes time for restitution

Track Name: In Motion
Wheels spinning with the wind
Moving forward every day
Catching the scenery

Still you keep spinning towards this thing
One day hoping to obtain
All of these things

That everyone says will make you king
But in the end
You’re left in vain

Wheels spinning with the wind
Moving backward everyday
Catching the scenery

And all the things that would make you king
Leave you in vain

In motion
Your simply spinning anywhere
In motion
With no destination
In motion
With no sense of direction in mind

Don’t you feel it’s about time
