During his early years in the industry Brandon performed at the Southern Gospel Music Fan Fair in Chattanooga, TN, the National Quartet Convention, and Abraham Productions’ mega-event, Singing In The Sun in Myrtle Beach, SC. Like many of Gospel music’s legends and current successful artists, Brandon attended the Stamps Baxter School of Music in Nashville, TN under the mentorship of the late Gaither Homecoming Music Director and lead singer of the legendary Speer Family, Ben Speer. While in Nashville, he studied under the vocal direction of the late Stephen Hill and the vocal-powerhouse performance coach, Allison Speer. Brandon has shared the stage with most all of gospel music’s supergroups as well as performing as lead vocalist of The Perrys in the Summer of 2010. In addition to an extensive touring schedule Brandon promoted several successful concert events, featuring Karen Peck & New River, Gaither Homecoming favorite The Nelons, Ivan Parker, The Talleys, Ann Downing, TaRanda Greene & The Greenes, and many more. In 2009, Brandon was selected to perform and host Nashville’s SoGo Central monthly concert series, which featured The Perrys, The Kingsmen Quartet, Mike & Kelly Bowling, and more. Brandon has recorded an extensive discography of Gospel music spanning the classics to several self-penned songs including the crowd favorite, “God’s Been Good,” and his most powerful and transparent anthem to date, “If We Could Love Like He Does.” Many of Brandon’s music tracks and vocals have been recorded at one of the industry’s premier label groups, Crossroads Records in Arden, North Carolina. Brandon continues to maintain a presence in gospel music still today, with involvement in his home-church’s, Adams United Methodist Church in Summit, MS, music department.

It is my first love and it’s my way of expressing my gratitude to God for His unwavering faithfulness and unconditional love.”
Brandon recently went public with his intense struggle with alcoholism. After a term in an inpatient rehabilitation and recovery center, an intensive after-care and outpatient program, and continued commitment to a Twelve Step program and fellowship, Brandon now claims his sobriety as a lifelong journey. Sharing his story, experience, strength, and hope with those who might find themselves in need is something Brandon finds necessary as a means to continue his path of progress rather than perfection. When Brandon tells his story he is quick to proclaim that it is only by God’s help he maintains his sobriety. In March of 2018, he celebrated one year sober.
