Brandon Seabrook is the guitar and banjo-shredding frontman of the raucous avant-thrash trio, Seabrook Power Plant. Mixing tweaked out hardcore with art rock improvisations where tech-metallic squelching converges with punk-jazz, his band’s two self-titled albums, Seabrook Power Plant I (2009) and Seabrook Power Plant II (2011), were released on Brooklyn’s Loyal Label. The Village Voice named him “NYC’s Best Guitarist of 2012″ and he has received national and international recognition in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, NPR, Fret Board Journal and UK music journal The Wire.
