Americana Singer-songwriter Folk Twin Cities Metro Area MN (Arts Council Region 11)


Art Vandalay is a Twin Cities-based band (and sometimes solo moniker of songwriter Brandon Henry) that blends the vintage sounds of The Band and the modern vibe of The Black Keys, creating a laid-back “Americana sound with a sprinkling of folk, pop, and jazz” (Mostly Minnesota).

Their latest album, Champagne & Chandeliers has been hailed as a “sonic feast” (The Norman Transcript). Capturing Art Vandalay’s retro-rock sound, the album is the perfect companion to a late-night drive and taking the long way home. The songs explore the choices made at every crossroads and how life speeds up and slows down--from the slow groove of “Traffic” to the rocking closer “If You Love Me.” 

Lauded for his timeless songwriting, Brandon Henry shines on songs like “Architects” and the instant classic “Never See You Again” (co-written by Henry and Seattle songwriter Jaspar Lepak). These and all the other tracks on the album have been a staple of Art Vandalay’s live shows, including their swampy cover of  “Angel and Delilah” -- written by folk singer Eliza Gilkyson. 

With loose energy, smart lyrics, infectious grooves, and a vibey Americana spirit, Art Vandalay has become a fixture of the midwest Americana scene.
