Give us your bio: Freshly minted, Brique (pronounced “Brick”), is an all new group like no other we’ve seen before. California natives Brandon Yowakim, Keith Kelly and Sam Gerber produce a new and eccentric take on pop music. Effortlessly blending multiple genres, one will find elements of Gospel, Hip-Hop, Grunge and Rock scattered all over their debut, “The Album”. They are defined by obsessive invention and reinvention, though, one could easily be fooled by their carefree attitude. Stating in interviews they re-recorded their debut album 5 times over a period of 4 years, it’s plain to see their painstaking perfectionism throughout their debut. Fueled by Yowakim’s charismatic songwriting and vocals, Gerber’s virtuosity on keys and bass, and Kelly’s immaculate guitar work, Brique shines with characteristic brilliance.
Who are your top 5 influences? Beethoven, Yoko Ono, Biggie Smalls, Dolly Parton, Michael Jackson, in that order.
When are your new projects coming out? Our fans will tell you, our album that we’re really proud of is out now, and it’s a lot of fun. It’s called “The Album”, you should check it out, you’ll probably like it. As for this Christmas, all good boys and girls should keep their eyes peeled for a special gift. You won’t want a lump of coal, but you might want some Brique!
What helped you get into music? Well, we were going to get into real estate, but we couldn’t get the bank to give us a loan, so we bought guitars instead.
What is one thing you would tell your fans? Return what you stole by noon tomorrow. If you don’t they’ll be very upset. We love you and brush your teeth twice a day (with mouthwash).
What are your biggest goals for 2021? 1) Go Skydiving with all of our fans at once. 2) Kylie Jenner makeup collab (better than the last time) 3) Make the entire world jump at the same time 4) Release our next album.
