Ambitious, captivating, motivated, a lover of all things music… just a few words used to describe Nashville Recording Artist, Brandon Wheeler.
Born in South Georgia on February 1, 1985, Brandon’s earliest exposure to music came from the place where so many of us began… church… singing with his mama. Growing up he listened to many musical genres; however, there was just something about country music… George Strait, Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks… these voices helped to shape Brandon’s dream of one day being recognized in the music industry.
Brandon dreamed of entertaining people with music; his first step was to teach himself how to play the guitar and, with a good friend’s help, he began to play acoustically at small venues in the area. Whether sitting around a campfire with a group of friends or standing on a stage looking into bright lights, whoever heard Brandon felt his love of music the moment he played his first note.
The more he played, the more the songs came; songs about everyday life… crisp autumn days hunting, cold nights sitting around a campfire, finding your one true love, and, sometimes, losing that same true love …
January 2013 began with Brandon recording his first album with five time Grammy nominee, Denny Knight. A single from the album, “Cruise Control”, was released spring 2013, with the online album following that summer. Among the songs on the album are five of Brandon’s own originals. In addition to releasing an album and writing, Brandon put together a seasoned band which plays clubs, festivals, private events, and other venues. Members are: Dean Bennett, Ronnie Streetman, Greg Streetman, Preston Streetman, and, of course, Brandon himself.
A partnership with Above the Game Outdoors came about in August 2013, where Brandon’s song “Ole Biggun” made its television debut. Brandon, along with Jeff Williams and Denny Knight, created the new introduction for Above the Game; Knight also produced.
Since then, Brandon has been busy participating in songwriter nights at the famous Douglas Corner Café in Nashville and making it to the semifinal s of the Georgia Country Music Awards… Just making sure that everyone around can share in his love of making country music!
Brandon now pursues his dream as a full time musician and will begin recording his next album in January 2016.
