Hailing from Augusta, Georgia where funk and soul seems to run in the water, Brandon Bower dove in head first, sunk to the bottom, and came back up with an undeniable force.
He draws from such inspirations as fellow Augustan, the Godfather of Soul himself, Mr. James Brown. In fact a local radio personality said it best: “If Elvis Presley and James Brown had a child, it would be no other than Brandon Bower.” He captivates audiences with relentless passion for the sake of the message. He has honed his craft of performing and writing through ten years of gigging and touring. During that time he has shared the stage with James Brown and the Soul Generals, Jennifer Nettles (currently of Sugarland), Colonel Bruce Hampton and The Code Talkers, Tim Reynolds, Chris Barron of the Spin Doctors, Guitar Wizard Monte Montgomery, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, John Michael Montgomery, Twila Paris, and the list goes on. In conjunction with performing, Brandon is a distinguished songwriter of over 50 originals and has co-written with Charles Kelley, frontman of the chart topping trio, Lady Antebellum.
One of his biggest strengths is his versatility. He can comfortably play and sing Rock, Funk, Soul, Country, Jazz, Jam, R & B, Gospel, Metal, and it is not uncommon to hear a little of all the above in his show. Brandon spent over five years touring as lead singer, guitar player, and writer, for the band The Big Mighty. They kept over 200 tour dates a year rising to the top of their booking agency. The band won Favorite Band of Best of Augusta Awards, as well as Best Vocalist, Best Bass Player, and Favorite Solo Performer. If you ever had the opportunity of catching one of Brandon’s live performances you will quickly see that his tenacity never wains. Whether ministering around the world or singing all night in the deep south honky tonks, whether one fan or a crowd of a thousand, Brandon puts all that he is into his performance.
