Mike Brand (Michael Carroll) is a product of broken places, mixed with rising above his circumstances.
Growing up as a huge fan of hip-hop, music got him through some of his darkest moments. Dealing with abuse, addiction and disfunction in his family history, Michael would quickly learn as a child the cold realities of the world. By the age of 21 he had endured enough significant tragedies and life altering moments that would eventually lead him to a crossroad in his life. It was at this moment where he accepted Jesus into his heart and let God show him a new way of life. This began the journey that led to the music that Mike Brand creates. You can hear his passion and desire for change in every lyric he crafts. Mike Brand has hit the scene with one mission in mind, to make real music that will empower a generation to rise above their circumstances, and not allow the world, or their past, to define them.
