Feeling a bit camera shy


Formed in Hollywood Ca. in the fall of 2004, the members of BRANDED share one thing in particular. For them, it started with Rock 'n' Roll, and that is forever BRANDED in their souls. This is where the rubber meets the road and nothing else matters.

Front-man BILLY KEANE began his musical journey as a drummer. Now as a lead singer, he fulfills a destiny. He’s in good company. Both Mick Jagger and Steven Tyler began their career as drummers, just to name two. When you find something you love, you keep going. As a performer, few can approach his skills to excite and entertain an audience.

Veteran guitarist DEAN SIMONE has fearlessly flown the flag in several of Hollywood's most outrageous bands that were the stuff from which legends are born. If there is ever a movie about it, he’ll likely play himself, as he is also a seasoned actor with film and television credits.

Guitarist MARK TOROSIAN knew his destiny at an early age. He doesn’t just play guitar. He lives and breathes it. Few have the passion, soul, and taste to play only the right notes…at precisely the right moment.

Bassist G. T. RICHARDS has served as “the man behind the music” for many artists. He has kept gold and platinum company, and some “ghosts” eventually come out from behind the curtain.

Drummer CRAIG FRANK has been the anchor for many artists. He is simply solid as a rock. He and bassist GT Richards have been "the tag-team wrecking crew” rhythm section around the venues and studios of Los Angeles since the early ‘90’s.

Life brings together five men…veteran musicians who have performed all over the country in every kind of band imaginable. Record deals, sold out venues, from accolades to oblivion and back again.

For us it started with Rock 'n' Roll and that may well be how it ends. Funny thing is, after all these years, it still feels like a beginning…

Rock 'n' Roll's not perfect but it is the soundtrack to the unknown. It's beautiful, frightening and life affirming. It's cool. What more can you ask for?

That's Rock 'n' Roll.
