he writes music and lyrics that are organic, honest and thought provoking. His self produced EP ‘Burning Ground’ inspired many on its way to amassing over 10 million streams on Spotify and being played endlessly on Sirius Radio’s Coffee House station. After touring last summer with Rachael Yamagata and Joshua Radin, Brandon went back into his home studio where he wrote, recorded and mixed his next EP entitled ‘Face the World’ which is to be released on July 20, 2018. In this record, Brandon writes honestly about his own battles with abandonment, worthiness and struggles with heartache. ‘Face the World’ is a record for those who are willing to have their emotions brought to the surface, ready to walk through them and begin to let them go. The uplifting music video for the song ‘I Believe’ is a testament to the kind of artist he is. Using his impressive social media reach, he created a platform for people from countries all around the world to share their story and beliefs through their own images and videos. Brandon’s sound is earthy, holistic and peaceful. The world always benefits when songwriters like him are around.

The Stones, and David Bowie — FNTN put on a live show that is equal parts adrenaline-fueled intensity and melodies that stick in your head. FNTN’s music combines their live show’s energy with reflective lyrics and new wave flourishes. Their first EP, Indigo (2016), fused surf pop guitars with a Talking Heads-indebted sense of rhythm to create the ultimate soundtrack for late night driving. Its lead single, “Indigo,” has over 20,000 streams on SoundCloud and counting. The Lucid Dreams EP built on Indigo’s rock roots while incorporating Vaporwave and Synth-pop elements. Online tastemakers featured the EP’s two singles, “One More Ride” and “Other Nights,” on multiple playlists; “Other Nights” also received attention as the band’s debut music video. Since relocating to Los Angeles, FNTN built their own studio in Topanga Canyon and began work on a new set of songs. FNTN filters all their influences through a classic rock ethos that is theirs alone. “FNTN tap The Beatles, 90s Britpop, and Frank Ocean for a unique, evolving sound.” – The Argonaut
