Indiana-based singer-songwriter Brett Wiscons today released the video for his third single “Broad Ripple,” from his EP, 33, produced by Mark Bryan of Hootie & The Blowfish. “Broad Ripple” was shot on location at The Vogue, a quintessential Broad Ripple music venue, and was directed by Kurtis Bowersock. The song recalls a typical night for a working musician and features Rob Dixon, Tyler Mechem, Joey Shestak, Chad Moore and Jason Kuykendall all accompanying Wiscons for the shoot.
Brett Wiscons is a founding member of two premier live acts in Indianapolis: rock band Great Scott!, which just celebrated 10 years with a headlining show at The Vogue, and acoustic duo The Michaels. The music has taken him to the east coast of Virginia and to the upper peninsula of Michigan, and back to his roots in Chicago and northern Indiana. Influenced by music from Hootie & The Blowfish, Edwin McCain, Pearl Jam, Dean Martin and Jeff Buckley, Wiscons quit a lucrative sales job in 2008 to pursue his passion. In addition to music, in 2012 he self-published the first installment in a series of books starring fictional private eye Bear Whitman in the debut novel Friend or Foe?, now available on Kindle, Nook and iPad. Wiscons co-wrote alongside two-time Grammy winner Mark Bryan of Hootie & The Blowfish, who produced Wiscons’ second solo EP, 33, released in early 2014. (see our review)
