Brandon Rockx Singer, Songwriter
Brandon love for music was deeply rooted when he 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.
Brandon was signed to Maztery Music’s label in 2012 and his debut single “Keep Rolling – A Biker’s Tale” was released the same year. It was picked up immediately by radio stations around the world. Stations in Australia, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and United States aired the song repeatedly. England’s “Total Biker FM” station dubbed Brandon the “Rock’n Roll Biker”.
His follow-up single “The Dream” was released a year later and was destined for the European Foxtrott Dance market. Brandon was then booked for several music festivals, and his next singles should be coming out shortly.
While he maintains songwriting for other artists, he supports children’s projects as well. He was hired to create the music for 3 book trailers for children’s books of the “Ricky, mein Action-Engel” series that have been released already, and he was contracted for a series of “Ricky” songs.
Brandon is currently in the studio working on his first album, which will be released later on this year in 2015.
