A Horse Named Pancho
"This Chicago musician strikes a beautiful balance between that part of the day that you know fairly well and the part of it that remains. It’s something like the twilight, I suppose, but it’s more dense than that. There’s more of a wolf’s howling in there and more of a fevered mind that passes for a shared darkness." - Sean Moeller of Daytrotter in Paste Magazine
Brandon James (Seyferth) (Brandon 'Sigh-firth') has been described as a less obsessive-compulsive Townes Van Zandt [Illinois Entertainer]. Revue Magazine has dubbed one of the bands he has led to be "the greatest band to come out of Chicago since the group Morphine in the '80's," While On-The-Town literary magazine has this to say: "Seyferth's travels through the mountains, China's industrial cities, and along the U.S. East Coast has afforded him a nomadic lifestyle where sleeping in the back of carnival trucks on the way to his next move in the next town created the perfect songwriting school from which he's graduated with honors." Seyferth has written, performed and recorded with the likes of Victor DeLorenzo (Violent Femmes), Jackson Browne, Eric McFadden (P-Funk, Eric Burdon, EoDM), and Pat MacDonald (Timbuk3, Purgatory Hill, Troubadour of Stomp). He has opened for Jimmy Chamberlin (Smashing Pumpkins), Scott Lucas (The Married Men, Local H), Matt Ulery. He has appeared on Daytrotter, Chicago's WXRT, and has done score work for the silent short film "Restoration," which has been selected by the International Film Festival of Cinematic Arts, Los Angeles.
