The protégé of legends Marcus Miller and Rodney Whitaker, contemporary jazz musician Brandon Rose harnesses his gospel roots to create rhythm and blues, and soul-inspired compositions. His music seamlessly and effortlessly incorporates elements of jazz, funk, hip hop, and R&B into a full-bodied sonic experience. In the 2000s, Rose achieved early notoriety on Michigan-based television programs and online streaming platforms as a child bassist.
At the tender age of five, Rose began playing the bass guitar for his Detroit-based mega-church, and soon became sponsored by the highest selling bass guitar brand in the industry. Rose has since traveled the world performing with the likes of Etienne Charles, Diego Rivera, his mentor Marcus Miller, and many other talented artists.
As a writer, Brandon’s compositions are inspired by his experiences with love and love lost, and by various social protests regarding the African American community and other efforts for equality.
