BRANDEN & JAMES, described by NPR Music as a duo with "dazzling cello and soaring tenor vocals" brings the soulful timbre of James on his cello combined with Branden's emotional and powerful vocals, creating a sound that leaves audiences feeling moved and inspired. Branden had a successful career on stage prior to meeting his now-husband, Australian cellist, James Clark. Some of Branden's accolades include finishing as a finalist on season 8 of America's Got Talent, appearances at The Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago and LA Opera. James brought to the mix his own share of musical accomplishments, accompanying Olivia Newton-John, Idina Menzel, and Bernadette Peters in multiple concerts. "Hardly a supporting player, but, rather, a true co-creator and co-star" (Robert Windeler, NY Times Correspondent) Clark started creating arrangements of familiar tunes that make you listen to them as you've never heard them before. Reminiscent for some as The Piano Guys meets Josh Groban, the duo weaves familiar melodies of pop tunes in classical style with their own unique sound. On June 5th, 2020 they will release their new album, "Chasing Dreams" recorded with chart-topping classical crossover producer, Patrick Hamilton (Katherine Jenkins, David Garrett, Alfie Boe). Additionally, Branden recently wrote a memoir about his time on reality TV, his long term battle with HIV & his coming out story entitled, "Lyrics Of My Life" which will publish in September, 2020.
