Brandon started to collect records at eight years of age. While his records of choice represented almost every genre and artist from Mozart to AC/DC, he focused on the areas of Doo Wop, Rock’n Roll and Rock. While listening to various radio stations and soaking up music like a sponge, Brandon picked up songwriting at age thirteen.
At age fourteen, with his teenage buddies, he got to experience the challenges of playing in a young boy band. From age eighteen, Brandon started DJ’ing at night in various clubs and discos, but found his niche when he became the DJ for a nightclub catering to American GI’s near Frankfurt, Germany, where he quickly built up a following for his unique blend of music, incorporating Doo Wop, Rock’n Roll and Rock into a party blend for GI’s. His DJ career topped out when Brandon got a chance to perform a one-week Club-Special with famous DJ Wolfman Jack, who praised Brandon for his unique style.
As a songwriter, he wrote songs that he performed himself in various nightclubs in the Frankfurt, Germany area during the late 1980’s. His songwriter highlight back then was a song he had written for Cher, and had sent it to her for acceptance. After a personal invitation by one of Cher’s managers, Brandon got to meet Cher in Santa Monica in the early 1990’s, but the song never made it into Cher’s repertoire.
While Brandon pursued a successful career in business, he established his home in the Southwestern United States, but extensively traveled the American highways and backroads throughout the country.
And it was on one of these night trips, while driving his 1957 black Cadillac across a lonely moonfilled highway in Utah, with the stars reflecting in his Chrome dashboard, that Brandon realized that these roads hold the real memories of American history. And it was then that his songwriting picked up again.
Inspired by the great Southwest, Brandon wrote songs and stored them away over the years, waiting for the right time in his life to get back in the music business. - Now is that time…
