Georgia-based artist and Nashville songwriter, WILKES fully encompasses the pop/rock sound over a country lyric. Raised in rural Cedartown, Georgia, WILKES’ parents recognized his musical gift when he started playing drums at the age of six. Around that time, he began singing southern gospel with his older brother and younger sister. In the years following, WILKES vocals developed into something special and unique. He joined pop/rock band, High Flight Society, as the lead singer and rhythm guitar player, which included a stint on Word Records/Warner Brothers Records; played in the band for Sam Hunt in the local bar and college scene; and ultimately joined well-known rock band, Disciple, as bass player/vocalist/co-lead vocalist. After three years of intense touring with Disciple, WILKES decided it was finally time to pursue a career writing, singing and recording songs that reflect his upbringing in a small town, all-the-while incorporating sonic influences ranging across all styles of music. Most recently, WILKES signed a publishing deal with Dan Hodges Music in Nashville, finished up a powerful run on NBC’s The Voice, and released his self-titled full production EP. With a multi-genre-spanning music career under his belt, WILKES is making waves in the country music scene as a powerhouse vocalist with the lyrical chops to draw in the listening audience from every corner of the country.
Pride in his home state of Georgia is at the core of Brandon’s music, an idea echoed in the warmth and wistful nostalgia of his newest single, “Summer Wind.” He considers himself to be a songwriter first and a musician second, having written most of the original material for his two earlier bands, Brandon Clark & The American Standard and Gin House. As a self-taught musician and designer, Brandon continues to release his music independently, and play shows throughout the southeast.
