Growing up in a suburb of Chattanooga, TN, Brandon Maddox, at the age of twelve began learning how to play the guitar and started his journey as a songwriter and performer. Having played the harmonica since the age of nine, Brandon used this skill to add to his performances and shows when he began performing three years later. His first audiences were largely family and friends and later progressed to bigger venues. By age eighteen, he was playing in front of audiences upwards of five hundred people at various venues in Chattanooga, TN.
His influences range from the Beatles to Ralph Stanley and span from today’s Country to yesterday’s Folk and Rock ‘n’ Roll. From those early influences, he began to hone his craft of songwriting and adopt styles and techniques used by one of the early masters of songwriting, the Beatles. He also drew extensively from his favorite artists in his early years and also those that he’s come to like from listening to them on the radio.
Brandon currently has written upwards of 700 hundred songs and in 2008 was signed as a staff writer to a small publishing company on music row known as Faverett Entertainment Group.
