Brandon

Bush

Musician, Composer, Producer


Bio

From an ambitious childhood activity schedule that included gymnastics, ballet and a failed attempt at T-ball, it was violin lessons at the age of four that piqued Brandon’s interest. With the support and encouragement of his musical co-conspirator brother, his parents, and a slew of fantastic music teachers, an interest in music evolved into a profession. As a studio musician, Brandon has performed on over 100 recordings including Grammy nominated and winning releases by John Mayer, Sugarland and Shawn Mullins. As a member of the multi-platinum-selling rock band Train, Brandon toured the world, indulging in his life-long rock and roll fantasy of performing a keyboard solo on a smoke-emitting Moog synthesizer.

These days, in addition to touring with his brother, Kristian Bush and county music mega stars Sugarland, Brandon runs a music publishing collective Songs of the Architect where he works as a songwriter, composer and producer on a wide variety of projects including film, TV, gaming and media formats that he alone can comprehend.  Recent works include a commissioned ID for Turner Classic Movies and an animated short, Thundercluck, currently touring film festivals. He can also be heard on his drive time radio show on AM1690, Mondays and Thursdays 5-7pm est. With a sweet tooth to challenge the Cookie Monster himself, Brandon can often be found hovering over the bread pudding in catering.
