Original Work:

Based out of Orange County California, Brandon Wildish first picked up the guitar a little over 20 years ago and has been a gigging musician for 15 of those years. Early in his career he played intimate settings such as small venues and coffee shops. Years later he helped create the alternative rock group called Hope Departed. Brandon was in this group for several years and had an opportunity to play with other great bands like Bad Religion, Cotton Mouth Kings, Pepper, A Static Lullaby, Over It, and more.

Brandon released his debut solo album (Simplicities) in November 2013. In late 2016, Brandon released his second album (Other Side), which received great reviews and press that has reached as far as London. Blending the sounds of both acoustic folk and alternative rock, Brandon has been described as having a  relaxed west coast vibe, similar to Jason Mraz, with classic rock roots grounded in the stylings of Pink Floyd.
