In our second February issue we’d like to introduce you to Brandon Lee Ross, another new member of our community! Brandon is a hip-hop composer and producer hailing from Newark, Delaware and currently resides in New Jersey. Brandon prides himself in his ability to be a versatile and eclectic producer. He is known to incorporate elements that range from down south claps and 808’s to the hardcore East Coast hip hop sounds and even to jazz.
Brandon’s career in music began at age nine when he started playing drums at his grandmother’s church, and he soon began to write and produce his own tracks. In 2002, Brandon launched Young Masterminds Productions, and, in 2004, in collaboration with Daniel “Phase” Thomas and Will “Gates” Brown, founded Time Is Money Entertainment (T.I.M.E.). T.I.M.E.’s production of rapper Bombchelle’s independent single, “White Girl,” was an overseas internet radio success and exhibits Brandon’s far reaching entrepreneurial interests.
In addition to crafting the musical success of other artists, Brandon has advanced his own musical projects. In 2012, four years after starting the solo-production company, 1985 Music, Brandon released his first solo EP entitled “The B-Side” under the Airplay/1985 Music imprint. Demonstrating his own mantra of “persistence and consistence is key when it comes to your goals,” Brandon was named executive producer for Airplay artist Robbie Maxx’s mixtape “A Different World” in the same year.
With a solid 10 years of production experience under his belt, Brandon joins our multi talented group of composers. He is geared up for future placements in television and film and always aims to communicate with people worldwide through his music.
