Prior to forming their musical collaboration, Branden had a successful career on stage and in recording before meeting the Australian cellist, James Clark. Branden finished as Finalist on America’s Got Talent, performed at The Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago and Los Angeles Opera, had two world tours with the Twelve Tenors and two solo releases worldwide. James brought to the mix his own share of musical accomplishments as a guest cellist for 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. Their connection was so profound that they began to play together regularly. The two started creating arrangements of “familiar tunes that make you listen to them as you’ve never heard them before.” Shortly after playing their first public concert together, they began touring around the world with their original songs and innovative, classically inspired covers. Since then, they have shared the stage with legends such as Sarah Maclachlan, Rita Moreno, Sally Struthers, Loretta Divine, Bruce Vilanch, Constantine Maroulis, Pia Toscano and The PussyCat Dolls.
Branden & James have just recorded a brand new, full-length studio album with Billboard chart-topping producer Patrick Hamilton (Jackie Evancho, Katherine Jenkins, David Garrett) full of originals and covers written especially for cello and tenor vocals.
