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. With a sweet tooth to challenge the Cookie Monster himself, Brandon can often be found hovering over the bread pudding in catering.
