Branden & James

The energy and fervor behind their music has a story to tell of their unique pairing. Branden had a successful career on stage and in recording prior to his meeting the Australian cellist, James. 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 Los Angeles Opera, two world tours with the renowned Twelve Tenors and two solo releases worldwide.

James brought to the mix his own share of musical accomplishments, accompanying Olivia Newton John, Idina Menzel and Bernadette Peters in multiple concerts. He initially came on board to music direct one of many charity concerts in which Branden was performing, and their connection was so immense they began to play together regularly. "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 like you've never heard them before. Shortly after playing their first public concert together, they've been touring around the world with their innovative, classically inspired covers and original songs.
