The debut album, Losing Generation, from Missouri-based rock band happyendings later this year. Produced by famed helmsman Bob Rock (Simple Plan, Aerosmith, Metallica), the record brings the foursome's catchy pop hooks and high voltage rock energy to the forefront.
The curious rise of happyendings - which also features Brannon's brother Micky on guitar, and the rhythm section of drummer Ian O'Connell and bassist Brandon Little disproves that misconception. After self-releasing two albums, the Springfield, Missouri quartet found itself at an impasse; they had built a dedicated regional following, toured across the U.S., and shared bills with acts like Sum 41 and All-American Rejects, but national success had yet to come calling. So when Brannon came across an outdated record label directory, about to be discarded by a local music store, he did the exact thing industry professionals will always tell unsigned acts is a dead end, a strict no-no: He began cold-calling every name in the book.
"Half those phone numbers were disconnected, and the rest went straight to voice mail," remembers Brannon. "Later, I told some people what I had done, making so many calls, and they all said, 'Well, that was a waste of your time.'" Actually, said Brannon: "Not doing anything at all is a waste of time." Against all odds, he did get one return call. The singer mailed off a three-song demo, which in turn led to a small development deal, and eventually, the brass ring: A contract with J Records, part of the RCA Music Group.
