Brandon Primus

Profile: Instrumentalist/Arranger/Performer The manner and flow of my music is heavily influenced by the music of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee Jazz musician Miles Davis and other notable artists such as John Coltrane, Grover Washington, Jr., and Kenny G. My style of music is a hybrid of Jazz, Soul, Funk, Hip Hop and R&B. Basically a historical culmination of styles that black musicians have pioneered.

Brandon Primus is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music, Boston, MA and was “Showtime at the Apollo” winner. He attended University Louisiana Monroe (ULM). He worked at Columbia Records as a talent scout in New York City. He has shared the stage with artists like Rashaan Patterson, Jody Watley, Jeffrey Osborne, Eric Roberson, and has performed at places like BB King's Jazz and Blues Night Club in Times Square, The Sugar Bar NYC, and at the Birchmere Music Hall in Alexandria, VA....
