Braden the Young is a rising DIY-producer, multi-instrumentalist and singer from Kansas City, MO. After receiving his first guitar at age 12, Braden began writing and recording music in bands in high school and college. As a composer, his music has been featured in television, film, and national advertising campaigns (including for Google, Microsoft, and T-Mobile). His style leans into several sub-genres of EDM including synth-pop and chillstep with a solid foundation in live instrumentation and bold, throwback-inspired melodies.


Though often behind the mic himself, Braden the Young songs usually feature vocal collaborations, tapping in heavily to the music scenes of Kansas City and Portland, OR (where he currently resides). For Braden, building a community of artists is as, or more, important than the music itself. Through his label that he co-founded, Middleborn, Braden has forged a circle of talented artists who have also become some of his closest friends.


One of our favourite bangers of the summer, Stay In is modern pop at its finest. The song kicks off with a guitar intro that gives off nostalgic vibes, and jumps right into a compelling vocal and production arrangement full of dynamic and charm.


Young's unique timbre cuts through beautifully; his nonchalant yet engaging delivery has us hooked. The pitched vocal layers compliment the aesthetic well. With fresh and playful melodies that kept us guessing, the swag in this track is absolutely undeniable. The verses are full of melodic variation. The hook is ingeniously simplistic and infectious. Young is joined by collaborator Mighty on the bridge with slick rhythmic variation and playful quarantine-inspired lyrics.


Stay In is the perfect song for the times. It's a yes from us.
