THE LOVE FACTOR

Brandon Williams musician, producer, drummer and singer.  He is known by industry legends as a musical architect, able to bring a musical blend of sounds as a master craftsman.  Brandon Williams continues to create an impressive resume.  His latest single In Love, from his upcoming album, The Love Factor, reminds us of that good ole R&B music we enjoy most.  The soulful ballad In Love, features vocalist Brian McKnight, Jr. It’s a love anthem about finding your true love and honoring your perfect match.  Appropriate love is something we all can use at this time.  Aside from working with the who’s who in music,  The Love Factor focus is to rekindle spreading love through music. Not since Anita Baker and others have we had love albums that made us feel good or indifferent in a musical way not offensive.  Brandon Williams, a protégé of Grammy and Billboard super producer Michael J. Powell (Anita Baker), I am sure The Love Factor will refresh our memories.
