When Steel Talks Exclusive icon

Young, gifted and immensely humble. He is an exceptional talent with unlimited potential. And he has only just begun. In an exclusive interview with When Steel Talks, steelpan player and arranger Brandon Waldrop shares his infectious joy for pan.

He is a deep thinker, a perfectionist - two traits which work well for a committed musician. The audio 'images' evoked through the arrangements unveiled to date by Brandon Waldrop, are undeniable windows into the treasure trove in store for music lovers from this talented pan player's musical palette. Intrigued by, and happy especially when he is engaged in a musical workout on the famous Ying Yang (six pan), Brandon embraced the challenge in mastering one of the more complex voices in the family of steelpan instruments. It is this energy, this element which is his signature on his path as he becomes a consummate steelpan musician.
