Brandon Willis – First Time

On Brandon Willis‘ debut album First Time are performing  Brandon Willis – Saxophone, Eugene Bien & Dwight Goodman- Keyboards & Synths.

Perhaps Brandon Willis was destined to be a musician. Six months before he was born, his parents attended a jazz concert by local smooth jazz artist Darren Motamedy. Sixteen years later in 2008, Willis, who lives in Newcastle,was performing alongside Motamedy at local jazz clubs as he pursues a career in music.

Willis plays tenor saxophone in four bands, including the jazz band, the wind ensemble and the marching band at Liberty. He also has his own band. Brandon lists Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Charlie Parker among his favorites.

While we wait for his current biography, listen to his album at CDBaby.
