Biography

Every song by Brandon Stanley contains a parallel to his life. They contain roots from a Louisiana culture where he formed his earliest convictions, to his coming of age in the suburbs of Houston, and his rise as an artist in one of the most tumultuous times the music industry has ever seen. They have led him here: one Billboard Top 40 single, thousands of records sold, shows with music legends such as Dan Fogelberg and Rob Thomas, 2004 SUPERBOWL SUPERBASH performance with Sammy Haggar, and a feature on the HDnet Television Network with David Gray that is regularly broadcast into over 4 million homes across America.

His newest album “Songs from the Middle Lane” is not your everyday pop record contrived of base lyrics and auto-tune dominated vocals; instead it is a wonderful story of perseverance through the greatest of adversity. “I want the listener to feel what it is like to live in a struggling artist’s shoes; and be able to relate to the struggle many feel to find fulfillment in their lives,” he said. It’s an emotionally charged record; packed full of guitar-driven radio rock anthems and lyrical conversation of the heart, struggle, and eventual triumph of a person seeking fulfillment through faith in God, themselves, and their dreams.

“Songs from the Middle Lane really captured who I was at the time I made it; a man who had to ask himself if he was crazy enough to get rid of all the Plan B’s in case Plan A did not work out. It’s a record that will ask you the question if you are satisfied with your life right now, or do you want more with the possible cost of everything you already have.”

Starting out with a “peanut” budget to promote his new record, using his loan money from his last semester of college, Brandon set out to win the hearts of radio programmers and their listeners in a city-by-city campaign of radio visits, on-air interviews, record store performances, and small concerts. The progress was slow at first, but after 3 months of chipping away, radio playlists in the South and beyond began to light up with Brandon’s debut single “If I Fall.” Followed by tours with Better Than Ezra, Matt Nathanson, Ryan Cabrera, and more Brandon found himself with a Billboard Top 40 Single and signing with Entourage Talent in NYC.

While a measure of success has been achieved for this burgeoning artist, efforts to keep bringing his songs to the masses have not ceased. In March 2007 Brandon will release his third album, “Postcards and T.V. Screens”, to CHR/HOT AC radio and will continue to do press, radio station performances/interviews, tour dates, and in-stores across America.
