The Go Round

The Go Round is the coming together of two Brooklyn songwriters, Brandon Whightsel and Richard Duke. The son of an etymologist and an alpine nurse, Brandon was born at the base camp of the third highest mountain in the Himalayas, Kangchenjunga ("Five Treasures of the Great Snow"). From these great heights he spent his youth descending into the intrepid and colorful world of the nomad. He spent his early teens as an olive farmer in northwestern Italy, where he whiled his free time away learning Italian folk songs on a Febricatore guitar. Richard was born in Tokyo, to a pair of English teachers teaching their way around the world. He ran away with his parents permission at 15, and spent his young adulthood busking through the former soviet block after picking up an abandoned guitar in the foyer of the Flying Pig in Amsterdam. The two met in 2006 on an on ramp outside of Kimball, Nebraska. Brandon was working his way out to Denver for a show that weekend, and Richard doesn't remember why he was there. Guitars in hand, they got to talking about the odds of both being dropped off, at the same time, on a lonely butte in the howling wind. Deciding at some point to stick together, the rest is history.
