Episode 9 - Brandon ‘Braville’ Holley is like no other person I’ve ever met. He is full of energy and enjoys every second of life that I think a lot of us take for granted. I met him in Syracuse, NY on ‘The Long Way Tour’ with Sammy Adams & Huey Mack. From that moment till the day I left the tour in Oklahoma, Nebraska was an adventure to say the least. When you travel the country with complete strangers you get to know them rather quickly. I think what stands out the most about Branville is that he has always been someone who just lives the moment and sees where the road takes him. The vision of where he would like to be is always in the back of his mind but he lives in the present moment. A lot of us get caught up in planning what's happening next week when all we should really be worried about is the next twenty-four hours ahead of us. From the influence of growing up in Southern, CA to the launch of his first clothing brand at fourteen, we talk about how Brandon has gotten to where he is today. This podcast is a little heavy on the content in regards to his lifestyle but underneath the surface of it all is a person who never gave up & never let the world influence him whether he was making the right or wrong decisions. Get to know Branville in this week's episode of the podcast.
