Springing forth following eight years of tours as “Narrator” with platinum selling rock band

Trans Siberian Orchestra to a feature role in the life story of Gospel legend BeBe Winans,

Born For This: The Musical,” singer-songwriter Phillip Brandon is making good on the

promise of his purposed and abundant gifts to share songs of love and optimism all his own

via his powerful debut album, The Story Begins – a warm wraparound throwback of

soul-stirring Contemporary Jazz, R&B and Pop (release date –  October 20th).

George Benson, Kenny G) as well as DrFord dynamically range from originals, such as Phillip’s
epic wedding song “The Promise” (inspired by many of his friends getting married coupled with
his parents’ marriage of 37 years), the uplifting “Chocolate Child” (channeling Sammy Davis,
Jr. and Gregory Porter) and the luscious piano ballad “A Funny Thing Happened (On the Way
to Goodbye)” to the tender Tropicana of the Stevie Wonder-esque “Looking For You (In
Somebody Else’s Eyes)” and an emotional cover of the late, great Luther Vandross’ “Wait For Love.”
