“Three Albums That Helped Shape My Music Career” With Brandon Wooten Of Framing Hanley

Today RichardThinks is excited to announce our inaugural “Albums That Helped Shape My Music Career” in which we have musician guest-blog on the site citing three to five albums that helped shape them into the musician they are today. Today’s feature comes from guitarist Brandon Wooten of Framing Hanley who hail from Nashville, TN.

Framing Hanley recently released their third studio album, “The Sum Of Who We Are”, through Imagen Records and are currently supporting the release supporting Devour The Day and Starset. Below are three albums chosen by Brandon Wooten in what he describes helped shape his career in music, as well inspire the band’s creative process while writing.

Foo Fighters – Wasting Light

With each record these guys put out, the Foo Fighters raised the bar. This record specifically is significant for us because it was an album we all rallied around, and it actually brought us closer together. It motivated us to strive harder as musicians, and made us want to become better writers and musicians. I think we’d all name this as one of the most important albums defining who we are.

Deftones – White Pony

As a guitarist, I specifically appreciate the guitar sounds on this album. The drone, dissonant guitars, coupled with super melodic vocals really worked to bring out a darker side of the band. This album proves that less is more, and it’s really great. It’s something we try to keep in mind in our own music.

Biffy Clyro – Opposites

Definitely check this album out if you’re not familiar with it. At first listen, we all immediately became huge fans. Biffy Clyro has really been a big inspiration for us to try new things. It’s always important to keep growing our sound as a band, and this album helps us keep that in mind.


Once again, we’d like to thank Brandon for his contribution. For more information on Framing Hanley, be sure to check the band’s Official Website.
