Brayden King is one of the artists who auditioned for Season 21 of American Idol.

American Idol returns to ABC on Sunday, Feb. 19 for its Season 21 premiere.

Here’s more about Brayden.

* He’s from Weyburn, Saskatchwan, in Canada and is now a full-time musician living in Edmonton, Alberta.

* Brayden’s also already released music to the tune of a pair of studio singles, including “Bad Night to be a Beer” from 2021 and a seven-song live album released in 2022.

* That live album includes four originals and three cover songs, including an impressive version of Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall.”

* Brayden says he grew up on classic rock bands like ACDC, Guns and Roses, Led Zeppelin and describes his music as edgy country.

* The other covers on the album are “Cocaine Country Dancing” by Paul Cauthen and “The Devil Wears a Suit and Tie” by Colter Wall. Brayden says Tyler Childers and Chris Stapleton are influences as well.

* Bryden wrote the originals on the album, collaborating with David Henneberg and Kael Sauerborn on the album-opening “Down That Road.”

* He’s got plenty of performing experience too, playing more than 150 solo shows, according to his web bio.

* In an interview with SaskToday, Brayden says he’s “formed an addiction to performing live, so I have been playing anywhere that will have me.”

* He is a graduate of MacEwan University with a diploma in music career management.

* Brayden previously performed as front man for Weyburn rock cover band called Seventh Avenue.

* On Facebook, Brayden calls 2022 “simultaneously the best and worst year of my life.” The best because of career progress. The worst because his mother — he calls her his biggest fan — passed away. “This hasn’t been easy, but when mom got sick, she told me to not give up, and to keep chasing my dreams. That’s what I’ve been doing, and I swear we’re just getting started,” he writes.
