Brandon is a creative lifer. Starting his first band at the age of 16, B has nearly 2 decades behind the mic under his belt. Singing, writing songs, and voice acting are true passions that keep his fire ignited and momentum growing. As spring arrives and summer looms, 2021 finds Brandon releasing a series of lead-up singles starting now, aiming towards his second full-length album inside two years, arriving in October.
Diamond Lane is Brandon’s lifelong band that started in 2002 with guitarist Jarret Reis. Over the years they’ve put a lot of miles on the tour van, played some unreal shows, put some rad music into the universe, and had a mostly damn good time bringing our childhood dreams to life. Brandon performed on numerous Southwest, Midwest, and West Coast tours, including feature performances at ROCKLAHOMA, Hempfest, Sunset Strip Music Festival, and Retrospect Rockfest, as well as packing every legendary venue in Hollywood, from the Troubadour to the Roxy. Fox Sports once named his band “Artist of the Month”, a title never-before bestowed upon an unsigned band, and one that included playing their tunes during all nationally televised sporting events.
Now he’s back to keep this string of success with his new catchy song “None To Spare,” a track that’s very reminiscent of the pop rock songs with a punk attitude. The chorus are catchy and the melody will get stuck in your head as you get in your feet and dance along.
About the song, Baumann comments “When I was writing this song, I approached the entire situation differently than I have for any song I’ve done in the past. I wanted to feature great melodics / lyrical content and decided to build the entire song over the same revolving chord progression. Normally I prefer to give the creative process a lot of wiggle room, but with this I was actually in a songwriting class led by Ryan Tedder, so I really only had a short few days to lock everything in. Knowing that my time was limited allowed me to be more cavalier and forced me to be confident in my decisions and keep things moving forward instead of getting hung-up / obsessive about making things “perfect”. There’s a certain beauty leaning into one’s natural instincts and rolling with how things organically evolve. I’m pretty proud of what I put together with this song and know one thing is for sure — it’s pretty damn catchy.”
