Zach Brandon On His Video For “Tell Everybody I Don’t,” Life As An Artist During COVID-19 & More

Earlier this summer, emerging pop/rock singer-songwriter Zach Brandon released a music video for his single “Tell Everybody I Don’t,” which already has over 220,000 YouTube views. The song was co-written by Brandon, multi-Grammy winning writer Charlie Midnight (James Brown, Christina Aguilera, Joni MItchell, Seal), and Jan Fairchild (Justin Timberlake, Mary J. Blige, Mos Def), and co-produced by Midnight and Fairchild. The video itself pays tribute to the film Risky Business as recorded in his Los Angeles apartment during the COVID-19 pandemic. In spite with the lifestyle choices of many of those folks quarantined a long while in 2020, the “Tell Everybody I Don’t” music video finds Brandon surrounded by the (semi-innocent) fun of ice cream, chocolate, whiskey, and pillow forts.

On September 3, 2020, I had the pleasure of interviewing Zach Brandon via Zoom, as embedded below along with 2 recent music videos. More on Brandon can be found online by visiting and his social media accounts on YouTube, Twitter and Facebook.
