Still working on that hot first release.



Connie Brannock is an R&B Force of Nature! She took the Tucson music scene by storm after she retired from the US Army as Command Sergeant Major, and in 2009 she re-upped as a hot-ticket band leader and patented R&B artist with enticing authenticity. Vocalist, songwriter, percussionist, poet, she leads three high-caliber bands: Connie Brannock’s Little House of Funk, the Connie Brannock Quartet, and Mama Sings Jazz. Ask the sell-out crowds throughout the Southwest—her live shows are exhilarating!
Connie was an entertainer out of the gate. Serious sorties began in high school when her band Luke performed throughout the mid-Atlantic—from Philly to Virginia Beach, to The Princeton Club and William & Mary College. She trekked West in the late 70’s, crooning with the Bill Brown Band in Salt Lake City and San Francisco. Back in Utah, she formed another hot tamale group, Connie and the Rhythm Method with David Jette. In demand, they toured Boise, Moab, Missoula, and Connie and the Rhythm Method saw her to the Hollywood Palace in Los Angeles.
She’s published songs, and composed inspired scores for dance and film. In 1986 Connie Brannock won the Stroh’s Superstar Talent Search out of 27,000 entries, and was signed by MCA Records. She performed regularly at the IDS Tower in Minneapolis. Caleb Ruffin, with Sounds of Success (S.O.S.), recruited her to move to Atlanta and work on a single. Instead, she up and joined the Army just before her 35th birthday!

She served admirably for 21 years and deployed twice in Operation Iraqi Freedom. A compelling leader, she has been a mentor to many young men and women. Connie Brannock retired as Command Sergeant Major, receiving the Legion of Merit Medal and the Adjutant General’s Medal citation for her accomplishments. Today she guides teen musicians, volunteers at the VA—singing at the Blind Rehab Center, and helping returning vets prepare for the job market.
