Meet Brandon

Brandon Hughes has a story that begins the way most music lovers do, it was planted with memories that began with family and Motown but it really started to bloom when he started to watch some of the most talented local artists in his city suffocate under their workload while struggling to see the bigger picture. 
 
Brandon has a passion for creating experiences, he knows the grind, understands the struggle, cares about cultivating partnerships, always gives it to you straight, and only represents those he truly believes in. 

When Most Would Throw In The Towel...

“In an industry that is filled with pessimism and being “too cool” for your own good it’s a breath of fresh air to have someone like Brandon with his passionate and optimistic leadership. When most would throw in the towel Brandon is always the first to find the silver lining and bring the team together. Don’t misinterpret this with being naive, it’s anything but gullible. When most people see an impossible challenge Brandon sees a huge opportunity.”

Ryan Argast, Lead Vocalist of Marina City
