Live to sing, sing to live! Going on year 19 of rocking the mic on stages and in studios, my passion for singing, writing and delivering top-level and inspired materials is at an all time high. If you need to bring your ideas to life or if you need a collaborator to unlock pieces of the musical puzzle -- I'm going to give it my all! Let's discuss!!
Creativity, music, passion and honesty -- these are the things that fuel my life. For the past 18+ years and counting I've been writing, recording and standing on stage singing my songs. This isn't a hobby. This is a passion fueled lifestyle. Working together would be a great pleasure, because not much satisfies more deeply than bring music to life and sharing it with the world. I'm flexible, easy going and I put the care into every project, as if it were my own.
As a frontman, I've had the great privilege of writing, recording and releasing countless songs for many years, so my studio experience is rich with applied knowledge. Collaborations, writing with other artists, stepping into the background vocal role, hired session work -- I love to sing and communicate through the power of emotion and the voice. It's amazing that now, the internet has provided a platform for me to share my gift, to collaborate with other talents, and keep putting great, real music, out into the universe.
My experience has earned me seasoned skills that can only be acquired through putting in the work, learning the lessons and always being a student of the game. It is my pleasure to have the opportunity to help give your project that flavor that it most certainly deserves and my goal is to help your music shine.

It was just like 1-2-3- Done! Amazing singer and musician, also a very attractive person. I am fully satisfied with this work. I had looked for a rocking voice and I found it, and more - a singer who can put a sole in your song! Best choice for American style rock music, IMHO.
I've worked with Brandon on so many recordings in the last 10 years. He's an absolute pro who always gives 100%. With an attitude that's second to none and voice that can break the sound barrier, I recommend him as highly as possible!
Brandon was an absolute pleasure to work with. No ego, just talent and good vibes. He adapted quickly to changes and showed zero push back when I made tweaks or suggestions to his performance. Great singer, great attitude, great guy!
Brandon's delivery and emotion are second to none. He is the most versatile singer I've ever worked with. His harmonies really lifted my track to a new level. His work is always delivered at the highest professional level and his performances always exceed expectations.
Great singer and frontman, both in studio and live -he's a total professional. Excellent pitch, time, technique and vocal control. Also you can count on him to be ultra prepared, warmed up, and on time. Brandon is definitely a rare jem of a musician. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a vocal professional.
Interview with Brandon Baumann
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: If you need drums, Dave Vandigitty is the man with the plan! Top of class and a breeze to work with, highly recommend.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Just 5 pieces?!? Well first and foremost, an acoustic guitar, an old school boombox (solar powered), a collection of my favorite albums, a notebook and pens!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been writing, recording, releasing albums and standing on stage singing for nearly 20 years. What once started as a pipe-dream as a teenager has blossomed into a career full of achievements, opportunity and potential, with so much more waiting on the road ahead.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To be honest. And to always give my all and pour every bit of care into your projects like I would my own. It's of the utmost importance to make sure you get more than what you pay for and are wholly satisfied with the end result.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I'm very proud of an album I did with my previous band Diamond Lane, that earned an "artist of the month" spotlight for the entire network of FOX Sports. Hearing songs that I helped write, lyrics that I penned and vocals that I performed, as the soundtrack for NBA, NHL and MLB was a true treat!
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: After doing the band thing for a lifetime, I've recently shifted gears and have just released my debut solo album "Manifestation" earlier this year! What a true blessing to continue to put my songs out into the world. I truly am grateful and am very satisfied with this body of work, bar none my most personal and developed yet!
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: They ask if I'm flexible to try new ideas and if they can get revisions -- the answer is yes! They ask if I'm willing to have a discussion beforehand to set the tone and expectations. The answer is yes! Like I've said before, I'm flexible and easy to work with. My only goal is to help your song(s) shine as brightly as possible!
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception is that it's easy and comes naturally. Nothing rewarding comes without diligence and a true commitment to the work ethic of developing your craft. I am forever a student of the game!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I like to get a feel for what emotion they are trying to evoke from the music. I ask if they are married to their ideas, or if they are flexible to interpretation. Opening the lines of communication provides transparency that most often achieves the best result, because everyone is on the same page.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Think about what you are trying to achieve with this session. Not achieve in terms of success, but what emotion are you chasing, how does the song make you feel, and what do you want the end result to communicate to a listener? The more in-tune with what you're after, helps to shape the focus and deliver for your expectations.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Versatile and focused. Having a private voice coach since early in my career (and still to this day), I am tenacious and always a student of the game. I believe in improving everyday and putting your all into any given opportunity.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would like to work with any artist that is authentic and filled with passion. In a world of chasing trends, being true to one's self is the ultimate advantage.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Perspective. Experience. A quick turn-around delivered with professionalism and an aim to serve the song and please the client.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital. We're living in the future over here!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Taking something that's merely an idea swirling in my brain and turning it into a tangible piece of art that has an opportunity to resonate and positively impact someone's life. That right there is powerful stuff!
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Serve the song!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Rock music as a whole, for many years. However, it's the unexpected curveballs that often invoke the most inspired reactionary responses.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Singing and top lining. These are highly refined and continually honed skill sets that I pride myself on delivering at the highest levels.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Set the tone, digest the material, react and THEN edit. More often than not, the biggest hurdle is getting out of your own way. Let that initial reaction flow instinctually, then be critical. That's a recipe for capturing honesty.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Focusrite into Logic Pro X with a variety of microphones, guitars and pedals. Whatever it takes to achieve the best possible result!
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Living in Los Angeles, I'm constantly inspired by the immense pool of talent that I'm surround with, and a part of. Tom Chandler is a wizard producer who has brought some of my most favorite tracks to life, and Dru Decaro is also another that I dig.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I bring a fresh vocal perspective to any project. A lifetime of experience and developed skill sets provides me with an opportunity to embrace any new challenge, be is straight up singing, topline development, lyric or song writing, with total confidence in passion and execution.
