BRONI joined Mark and myself for the second time on this week’s Twitter Tuesday Live. It was great having him back! He is not only a very clever writer but he is a bloody good, down to earth aussie bloke! He is also very comical! btw if you are wondering what he is holding up in this photo, its a bobblehead!!!! Mark and I should so have one!
Mark and I first met Broni when he was our guest back in June 2011 when we presented some of his songs from his album TO GET HER TOGETHER. I have this album on my iPod and it stays on there amongst all my other music and has travelled with me on many a plane trip! It is an album that you can just put on, kick back and just chill!
We spent a wonderful hour with Broni, talking about his music and also another project that he has recently been doing Improv Comedy. Please check out this link to hear the whole interview: http://www.wwirradio.com/home/2014/04/08/episode-142-with-broni/
During the show we asked Broni for selfie! I love this photo! Thanks for being an awesome guest Broni!
Broni has released a new self-titled album available from this link: http://www.bronimusic.com/ep-broni-self-titled Although Broni does tend to give away most of his music for free, it is well worth buying it as well! All of Broni’s CD’s are awesome, and they have these cute caricatures, not sure if this is the right word but they are just brilliant! The last CD I got came with a cute badge as well and a really nice thank you letter, which is now laminated, and on my wall!
Broni is no stranger to the USA in particular California and he told us that he is heading back there at the end of the year. He is looking for house gigs to play between 25th of October and 28th of November. He is also planning to tour the East coast and Austin, Texas. So if you are reading this and are able to help Broni, please get in touch!
Broni has a brilliant web page, lots to see, lots of fun stuff as well as his music, so please check it out: http://www.bronimusic.com/
