Music

At the height of his Amateur career Brandon was in a life threatening accident while training that landed him in the hospital with a broken neck, back and punctured heart. In the emergency room, while doctors’ were fighting to save Brandon’s life he actually flat lined into what appeared to be death, twice. The first time he flat-lined for 3 minutes, and the second for 5 minutes. Luckily he was resuscitated.
During his recovery period Brandon had to relearn how to walk and talk. Once he regained those abilities he began to focus his energies on making music, his only other passion outside of motocross. Brandon looked at his own near death situation as a needed break and inspiration for his music. His music often reflects his passion for chasing dreams and making the impossible seem ordinary.
Today, Brandon is fully recovered and preparing to race in his rookie season as a pro on 2011 Super-Cross circuit. He’s also is recording his first professional HIPHOP/POP music compilation set to be released during his Super-Cross season as the soundtrack to Motocross. Musically Brandon is under the guidance of music mogul Melvin Brown (Akon, T-Pain, Lady Gaga) who is his manager and entertainment agent.
