Michael Brandmeier (Artist Profile) Bio 2010

Michael Brandmeier is an authentic, acoustic pop artist whose music is being heard around the globe. Michael has garnered many independent awards in the past few years--IAMA just named Michael “BEST MALE ARTIST” 2010. He was nominated by the 2009 "LOS ANGELES MUSIC AWARDS" for "MALE SINGER/SONGWRITER OF THE YEAR", WINNING the same award in 2006.

His songs have been featured in many Film/TV projects from MTV’s “CRIB’S, The Lucas Grabeel of HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL fame, Indie Film “THE ADVENTURES OF FOODBOY” or as it plays HIGH SCHOOL HERO as it plays ON DEMAND here in the US, to the hit SHOWTIME series SOUL FOOD to NBC'S hit soap opera, PASSION'S, QUEER EYE FOR THE STRAIGHT GUY to the hit TV series DAWSON'S CREEK, PARTY OF FIVE, JOAN OF ARCADIA, BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE and more. His song “RETURNING HOME” will be featured in a brand new Jerry Bruckheimer TV series on CBS called MIAMI MEDICAL...

”Being an older artist, I have found in the FILM/TV world, age doesn’t matter as long as it really fits the scene. Although, the terrain has gotten tougher due to Major labels now vying for these cues because of decreasing interest in terrestrial radio, their once sure- fire pub machine. It’s still a really great alternative outlet for Indie artists as myself--if you can manage to get lucky enough to land a cue”.

Michael is also a two-time winner of the SONG OF THE YEAR songwriting competition award--first time a winner in the POP category 2005, recently winning, November, 2009 in the AC category with his ballad “IF YOU’RE LEAVING SAY GOODBYE”. As well as a two time--INDIE MUSIC AWARDS “WINNER” in the Film/TV category and winner in the INDIE POPULI vote. On his award recognitions Michael states, “Any time an artist can be singled out of the masses of talent in this crowded & expanding music biz landscape, it’s truly an honor and something to be proud of”.

TRUSONIC RETAIL PROGRAMMER acknowledges Michael as the top INDEPENDENT ARTISTS based on plays in RETAIL stores in 2004 and 2005 and still accumulating 800000—1,000000 plays a year in stores and restaurants worldwide. The director of music programming for TRUSONIC, Tim Ward, says that Michael’s music is “PERFECT POP”, not too hard, not too soft”.

Michael says, “It’s really a thrill every time I hear someone contact me and let me know they were shopping or dining out and they heard one of my songs playing. It’s happened many times and it’s what I like to call “HEART PAYMENT”.
