After winning the Tennesse Valley "Vocalist of the Year" award in 2002, Brandon made the decision to move to Nashville to pursue a career in writing. He has regularily attended writers venues at THE HALL OF FAME CLUB, THE SUTLERS, and THE FRENCH QUARTER CAFE.
Recently, Brandon had the opportunity for a cameo in Alan Jacksons new video, "TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING".
Brandon is proud of the release of his new commercially produced CD appropriately titled, "NOTHING VENTURED... NOTHING GAINED", co-produced by Brandon and Dan Drilling of PANDA PRODUCTIONS, Nashville.
After a recent SHOWCASE in Nashville Tennessee, these were the reviews:
Margie Cumbie, Artist
"Brandon Lynn Shane has an amazing gift. He hears things a little differently. He crafts his music in such a way that you feel like he as a special secret he's going to share with you in the end and when he does, you are never disappointed. Brandon is a dear friend anad we share a deep rooted bond in our music. I have been blessed to sing and record some of his songs, and I look forward to more in the future"
Keven Kathey, Musician, Producer
"As the drummer for the Chart Reading SumBitches, I've had the opportunity to peform with a vast array of artists/songwriters. Brandon's showcase performance was quite a pleasant surprise. From the moment Brandon took the stage, it was delightfully apparent that this was not Brandon's first rodeo. Brandon's onstage patter established an immediate rapport with the audience as he skillfully took them on a musical journey of well crafted songs. Brandon's vocal quality, muscianship, stage presence and songcrafting abilities are what most people in the business call "the complete package".
John T. Mills, JTM Promotions:
"Concerning Brandons' performance a few weeks past at the French Quarter Cafe' in Nashville: Brandon Shane gave a most exhilarating peformance. While certainly a proficient songwriter, I was pleased and somewhat surprised by his vocal capabilities as well. Altho many in the crowd that Tuesday evening (and the venue was quite filled), were friends, aquaintances or proteges, etc, there were quests like myself that had not witnessed Brandon in a live setting. Very impressive!".
"Obviously, Brandon Lynn Shane is one of Nashvilles' better kept secrets. I have (and continue to do so) attended hundreds of songwriter venues in the city. Actually, I include songwriting portions in festivals of which I coordinate the entertainment. Brandon is as talented as any out there. He has an ongoing invitation to perform at any such events that I am connected with in the future. Furthermore, I believe that we will one day soon, witness one or more of Brandons' writings reap an award.. GOLD OR PLATINUM!!
TERRI LYNN, Artist, Writer, Writers Night Host:
"I have had the pleasure on several occasions to see and hear Brandon Lynn Shane perform. From the moment he took stage each time, Brandon easily held the audience in the palm of his hand. Add his performance with the fact that his songwriting abilities are major league and you have a show not to be missed.
