In fact, a local radio personality said it best, “If Elvis Presley and James Brown had a child, he 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 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, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Twila Paris, and many more. In conjunction with performing, Brandon is a distinguished songwriter of over 50 originals and has co-written with Charles Kelley, front man of the chart-topping trio, Lady Antebellum. His sound includes elements of Rock, Funk, Soul, Country, Jazz, Jam, R & B, Gospel, and Metal. It is not uncommon to hear a little of each music genre 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 Big Mighty won Favorite Band of Best of Augusta Awards, including Best Vocalist, Best Bass Player, and Favorite Solo Performer. If you ever have the opportunity to catch one of Brandon’s live performances, you will quickly see that his tenacity never wanes. Whether ministering around the world or singing all night in the deep south honky-tonks, playing for one fan or a crowd of thousands, Brandon puts all that he is into his performance.
