So you guys don’t know this but I don’t have cable or watch much besides YouTube videos and Netflix. The point of mentioning that is that I haven’t watched American Idol since the second or third season. So I didn’t know who DeAndre Brackensick was until he kept showing up in my YouTube recommendations.
Currently, he is working on a few different music-related things in Australia. DeAndre just released a new single, “Catch.” Of course, there is also a video for “Catch” that I’ve watched at least ten times.
By the way, DeAndre is a sweet and funny guy. If you read the following interview, you’ll see that it’s true.
How long have you been in Australia?
Been in Melbourne since May 2017
What have you enjoyed the most about being in Australia?
I love the music scene and the sense of community within the other musicians! Everyone is very talented and willing to share it with others
Have you wrestled any crocodiles yet?
No lol haven’t seen one yet lol
How much fun do you have with Lina and Izik?
Lina and Izik are some of my closest friends! Not only do we enjoy our times singing, most of the time we’re together it’s just constant laughing from random buffoonery. And I love them so much for it lol
Have you guys (you, Lina & Izik) ever considered forming your own band?
No, we love singing together but acknowledge that we are all our own artist and support each other in that way
Do you ever get stage fright?
I get stage fright most times, mostly with bigger settings or formal gigs. I want to make sure I’m giving my best and don’t wanna give a bad first impression
You had the chance to meet Patti LaBelle? Was it everything that you hoped it would be?
It was everything I hoped for and more! She was one of my idols from childhood! She was just as beautiful, classy, and amazing off stage as she is on stage. Was that moment meeting one of the people that inspired me to sing and it was better than you expected! Just a genuine, real and kind legend
Do you like being in the studio or do you prefer touring?
I prefer touring! I like the interaction of singing to a crowd! Sharing what I wrote and hopefully moving someone enough to have a positive reaction.
What would you like people to know about you?
Just that I’m excited about what’s to come with my life and you’ll hear more music from me soon! I love what I do and I wanna share it with the world
