Brandon attended AMTC’s SHINE Convention when he was a talented 10-year-old. He could act, model, sing and dance and came away with callbacks and representation.
Brandon worked on and off for the next 6 years, training, making music, dancing, acting, growing his talents, until he was discovered (online) by a producer for Simon Cowell. At the time, they had put together a new boy group called “PRETTYMUCH.” They had been in training for several months, when one boy was released. They auditioned for his replacement and Brandon won the spot.
Most people would have thought Brandon was a polished and seasoned 16-year-old performer. But Simon Cowell is not most people. He knew Brandon and the group's 4 other young men needed more knowledge, preparation, understanding of their audience– and how to best reach them. So they went into another 18 months of training before they started performing publicly as PRETTYMUCH.
