Brandon Markell Holmes is a formally trained theatre actor, working within themes of social observation and the symbiotic relationship between art and history.
Described as an ‘invigorating artist’s artist,’ by the Chicago Tribune, he’s also a musician working his own art into history, having appeared on the Grammy-nominated Gorillaz album ‘Humanz’, as well as being featured in Afropunk for his visual EP ‘Inertia’. His debut album, ‘The Museum of R&B,’ re-released in 2020 by brooklyn-based label, toucan sounds, fully displays the depth of Holmes’ artistic message. Complete with visuals and live performance, the album was originally performed as an immersive experience at The Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. In Brandon’s words, “My prayer is to always create, speak and express with an authentic understanding of what I’m saying and why I’m saying it.”
