Check Out Brandon Brown’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brandon Brown. Them and their team share their story with us below:

Born and raised in Memphis, Brandon’s love of music started at a young age. Born of musical parents and in a spiritual family, Brandon became captivated by the sounds of the region. He began playing bass at 15 after hearing Victor Wooten’s cover of “Overjoyed” by Stevie Wonder and never looked back.

By age 19, Brandon was playing on the Academy Award-winning soundtrack for the movie Hustle and Flow and was the bassist for Isaac Hayes. He has since been credited with artists Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, The Black Eyes Peas, Boyz II Men, Fergie, PJ Morton, Chrisette Michele, Jessica Simpson, Keyshia Cole, and toured with American Idol (2010-2011). He has performed with artists on TV Shows such as The View, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Late Show with David Letterman, The Today Show, and Rock In Rio.

As his career took off, so did his calling into ministry. “Pastor Funk” is the culmination of Brandon’s two loves; spirituality and music. He believes that his ministry in part is to inspire and touch people in a positive way through his musical career. Brandon also believes in the beauty of collaboration, and so The Brandon Brown Collective (The BBC) was born.

Other members of The BBC perform with Anderson Paak, the NPG, in the Kanye West Sunday Services, and with Childish Gambino.
The mission is simple for Brandon moving forward in his career. He is thrilled to continue to spread the power of love through music, performance and spirituality. Get ready world, there is a lot more to come from the dynamo himself, “Pastor Funk!”

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
I’ve learned that I must keep my vibration at a high frequency at all times if I want to continue to reach my goals. Stay on your mission because there will be distractions, disappointments, betrayals, and “the worst day of my life” type of days but, you must remember to never take anything personally and to NEVER STOP GOING!! If you love yourself and believe in yourself, that’s gonna be enough to keep you going towards your goals.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I’m known for playing the bass guitar, being a bandleader/Musical Director and being a professional at what I do. I think what sets me apart from others is that I truly know who I am and am open to change.

How do you define success?
Success is good health, love, peace of mind, happiness and money with ease, comfort and joy.
