Brandon Hebron was born August 23, 1989. Brian knew Brandon was going to be involved with the music business when he took a guitar pick, without putting the pick in his mouth, and strummed the guitar for the very first time at the age of 6 months. While growing up, Brandon has been watching Brian and the other band members practice at the house and absorbing every little thing possible; whether it was singing or playing an instrument.
The first instrument Brandon taught himself how to play was the drums at age 3. Around the age of 8, Brandon was able to play drums for country promoter "Smokey Smith". Brandon was also drawn to the bass guitar, piano, and lead/rhythm guitar. Brandon recorded the bass guitar on their latest album with some of the top musicians in the Nashville area. Brandon has been involved with choir and singing from elementary to almost the end of middle school. Brandon went back to choir his senior year of high school where he was inducted into the vocal hall of fame for Saydel High School in 2007.
One of Brandon’s biggest inspirations for singing was the country quartet, the Statler Brothers. Brandon taught himself harmony by listening to the tenor singer, Jimmy Fortune everyday on the family stereo. Some of Brandon’s vocal idols of today consist of Chris Young, Josh Turner and Joe Nichols. Brandon has competed against talented people in contests such as his latest in Nashville, the television singing show “The Voice.”Brandon has met a lot of very talented people through the years who have led him to want to take his music career as far as possible.
