With influences ranging from Frank Zappa and John Coltrane to Bob Marley and G Love, Burgess describes his mixtape as “swampy, southern, soulful, shagadelic, good music. It’s just like Mom’s home cooking.” And, with that in mind, take a listen to his single, “Party Like A Pornstar”- which recently premiered on Maxim- below!
The young singer got his start playing 6th Street clubs in Austin, and was later hooked up with the Jonas Brothers who recorded his song “Chillin’ in the Summertime.”
Since then, Burgess has moved to Los Angeles where he currently is working with Grammy nominated producer Kevin Kadish (Jason Mraz, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Hicks) and Mark
Batson (Jay-Z, Eminem, 50 Cent). “Every day I’m re-inventing the way I write songs,” he says. “As long as I can survive and get by and play music for a living, I’ll be alright.”
