Brandon Brings Jimi’s Legacy To NAMM Show!

Brandon Niederauer is 11 years old and plays the guitar like he was born with it in his hands. A bold statement to make for a kid barely out of elementary school, but it’s the absolute truth! Brandon appeared at NAMM early this year and joined by members of supergroup The Wimbish AllStars, proceeded to blow everyone away with his rendition of Jimi Hendrix’s ‘Voodoo Child (Slight Return)’.

I’ve watched this video several times now, and I see shades of both Jimi and Stevie Ray Vaughan in Brandon. He’s got Jimi’s fearlessness, bending the strings to his will and just going with it, and he’s got Stevie’s conviction and casual confidence as he rips his way across the fretboard of his Gibson Les Paul. He’s even got Stevie’s facial expressions!

Brandon’s Hope For The Blues:

“My father takes me to a lot of festivals and the crowds are so big so I hope the future is bright for blues based music. I think there will always be an audience. People like what is real.”

+ Voodoo Child lyrics +

I stand up next to a mountain
And I chop it down with the edge of my hand
Well, I stand up next to a mountain
I chop it down with the edge of my hand
Well, I pick up all the pieces and make an island
Might even raise a little sand

‘Cause I’m a voodoo child
Voodoo child

I didn’t mean to take up all your sweet time
I’ll give it right back one of these days
I didn’t mean to take up all your sweet time
I’ll give it right back one of these days

If I’ll see you no more in this world
I’ll meet ya on the next one
Don’t be late
Don’t be late

Well, I’m a voodoo child
Lord knows I’m a voodoo child, baby
Voodoo Child, Voodoo child, Voodoo child
