Red flags and a steamy tryst send award-winning songwriter Brandon Calano into a heartbreak spiral on Becoming Young’s sensual single, “High.”
There’s just something ‘bout you, Girl/This could be so dangerous Brandon Calano—who releases music as Becoming Young—sings on the smoldering new single, “High.” She’s irresistible, the warning signs are undeniable, but impulses and booze enable the ill-fated seduction.
“I was very single at the time and enjoying it. I was definitely not looking for a relationship, but I met a girl one night who changed the course of my life,” the Nashville-based artist details.
“High” will be released April 24th 2020 as a single, and later included with a 4-song EP of balmy summer jams. These releases will seed the path to Becoming Young’s upcoming album, which will feature tracks produced by Ryan Hadlock (Vance Joy, the Lumineers, Phillip Phillips, Milo Greene, and Brandi Carlile). Slated to mix the record is John O’Mahony (Matt Maeson, Coldplay, 21 Pilots, Vance Joy). The new album will explore the heartache aftermath of “High.”
The intoxicating slow-grind of “High” blurs the lines between electro pop, indie pop, R&B, singer-songwriter narrative writing, and urban pop. It features an ear worm of a sensually jazzy guitar hook, and the slow-burn singing of a confident man getting a little weak in the knees as he falls prey to uncontrollable desire. “High” draws from the urban-hued electro-pop stylings of Two Feet, Khalid, NoMBe, Dennis Lloyd, and Beauville.
The Nashville-based artist who is an accomplished singer, songwriter, producer, and mixer invited some friends to collaborate with him on his latest. “High” was co-written with producers/singer-songwriters Knox Morris and Will Sivy. The track was produced by up-and-coming Nashville-based producer Austin Shawn.
Brandon basically fled his hometown of Boulder, Colorado to rebound from the fallout he experienced after his relationship with the love interest in “High” ended. He moved to Nashville not knowing a soul, but quickly found his way into the fertile music scene, playing songwriter rounds and showcases nearly every night of the week. Career accomplishments to date include winning Nashville’s esteemed True Music Room Top Writer Series; his first pop single, “Trippin,” accruing over a quarter-million streams on Spotify; and playing sold-out shows in Atlanta, Denver, Boulder, Portland, and Seattle.
Brandon has been working closely with Grammy-nominated producer Ryan Hadlock on his next album. That association has opened many doors, including connecting him with Chuck Morris, CEO of AEG Presents. This is an association close to Brandon’s heart as both he and Chuck are graduates of University of Colorado at Boulder. Brandon has also been enjoying a brother/sister collaboration with his sibling, Carson Calano, an accomplished visual artist whose singular aesthetic has helped define Becoming Young’s imaging.
Meet Mike Morse, The Man Who Built Michigan’s Largest Personal Injury Firm
It has become clear who the “Legal Titan” is in Michigan. Mike Morse’s personal injury firm, Mike Morse Law Firm, collected more than $160 million in settlements and verdicts in 2018, and has won over one billion dollars for his clients since it was founded in 1995. The office is made up of 150 employees and 50 attorneys making it the largest personal injury firm in the state. Morse mastered turning rejected cases into thousands of dollars in settlements and referral fees and is known today as a leader in Michigan’s legal community.
The “855-Mike-Wins” phone number is truly fitting.
When someone achieves so much, people want to know how it was done. Lawyers have come to Morse for years asking how he built his firm. Here’s the inside scoop on what he believes is the key to his success.
Perseverance Is Key
Like in any business, Morse had to overcome challenges that tested his commitment to his goal and to himself.
Before Morse finished law school, his father, who was also a lawyer and who he planned to go into business with, passed away. He was left with nothing. This was Morse’s initial test of his dedication to his vision. However, he believed great things come to those who learn how to overcome setbacks. Morse chose to continue to pursue becoming a lawyer and eventually built a well-established practice.
Then, in 2008, a fire engulfed Morse’s building.
Some might give up after such a devastating loss, but not Morse. He was calling his clients the next day. Like most people, he had no experience rebuilding from such a devastation, let alone grasping what to do in the moment. However, by staying committed to the values he knew regardless of the scenario, Morse handled the situation day by day and his comeback story continued.
When Your Big Break Comes, Give It Everything You’ve Got
A few years into running his own practice, Morse’s father-in-law introduced him to “Sid”, Detroit’s premier personal injury attorney at that time. Despite having to pay Sid forty percent of the total fees he brought in from the cases (the typical rate being only one-third), Morse knew how big the opportunity was so he accepted the offer. Sid referred Morse a handful of cases, and he brought his best to every case.
One day, Morse received a case from Sid likely worth only $2,500. Continuing to work his hardest no matter what, Morse managed to get $25,000 for it. When he sent Sid his check for the case, it opened up the door for him. Sid immediately began sending more cases, eventually referring Morse 70 percent of his personal injury cases.
At the peak, Morse was paying Sid more than $4 million a year in referral fees, and it was all because Morse treated every case like gold. He gave every client the highest level of service and it paid off.
In 2011, Sid unexpectedly parted ways with Morse. Like many times before, Morse immediately had to plan his next move. He knew he needed to create a new way to bring in clients and not have to rely on or be affected by an outside factor.
With the experience Morse gained from his father’s death to the fire that burnt down his office to the moment Sid stopped referring him cases, Morse learned how to “fireproof” his business. Today, his firm is the largest personal injury firm in Michigan.
Morse believes anyone can adopt his principles and operate by them. He hopes to inspire others to trust their values and stay committed to their personal goals regardless of how difficult the path may look.
Morse is putting the finishing touches on a book he’s titled Fireproof, How to Take Your Law Firm From Unpredictable to Wildly Profitable. The book will be out later this year. If you’d like to learn how to fireproof your business, you can sign up here to be notified when it’s released.
Meet Sam Taggart: The Entrepreneur That is Revitalizing Door to Door Sales
Sam Taggart has been knocking doors since he was eleven years old. Coming from a family of businessmen and women, Sam began his career painting curbs. Quickly rising to the top, Sam had a profitable business of $100,000 before he graduated high school. After serving a 2-year mission with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Sam stepped into the Home Automation industry where his career skyrocketed.
As a successful, competitive door knocker, Sam sold over 400 alarm accounts making a bold statement in the industry that college wasn’t the only answer to having a successful career that could financially take care of his family. After his accomplishments, he decided to take his career to the next level by switching to the Solar industry and becoming the VP of Sales. Being VP of Sales was great; however, while building the business he learned some basic fundamentals that were missing across the industry and felt inspired to create something bigger.
Against all advice, Sam pursued his passion to Unify, Up-level and Bring Honor and Integrity to the door to door space. Not having any idea how he’d build the business, he quickly joined forces with his sister Abigail Ayres, and they went to work. Together, they created, built and launched D2D Con (Door to Door Conference) locking in over 25 vendors and 900 attendees their first year. Many people in the industry mocked Sam for his idea, not really understanding his vision or if he’d actually do it. Year one of his conference he even had a friendly fire, but that didn’t stop Sam from pursuing his mission. Here He is 4 years later, 3000 attendees from all over the USA, Canada and England and over 85 vendors.
Sam had no idea when he stepped out of the Home Automation and Solar Industry, that 4 years later he would have a Million Dollar Company, his dream job, with his dream team, and his dream house, marking off several of his “bucket list” items all by the time he turned 30. Over the last 4 years, Sam has added many products and services to his company. Originally creating a sales conference to neutrally train and up level all industries, Sam discovered the industry was calling for more. He trusted his intuition and created a white label virtual training platform, business consulting service, business bootcamps and coaching services.
Through Sam’s experience he has learned that many people are skilled at sales, but many companies don’t have systems and processes to assist in supporting their sales representatives. In order for Sam to achieve his goal of Unifying, Up leveling and Bringing Honor and Integrity to the door to door space, he saw his vision needed to be much larger and expanding was necessary. Speaking engagements taking him all over the United States, he quickly saw a need that wasn’t being met and began to fill it.
In today’s world with COVID-19 rapidly spreading, causing many businesses to go virtual and shifting the entire sales industry as we once knew it, Sam has quickly adapted and is teaching people all over the world how to virtually sell and connect. He is also training many businesses on how to keep their doors open and sales flowing.
Sam trains thousands of individuals and hundreds of companies, sharing tips and tricks on Sales, Recruiting, Training and Leadership development. Sam is an Author, Speaker, Podcaster, Consultant, husband and father to 3 beautiful girls. To follow this entrepreneur’s journey on Instagram, click here.
