Episode 61 - Brandon Showell

Brandon Showell, the VA/Washington D.C. based artist, is an R&B and Pop singer. Born and raised in Virginia Beach, VA, home of music legends such as Pharrell Williams, Timbaland, and Missy Elliott, Brandon made his professional debut with the group 4Shore.
The group consisted of four solo artists who decided to form a power-house vocal group in high school. 4Shore began singing on platforms (Beach Street U.S.A) at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront that year and started to gain a lot of attention from locals and tourists. Their following grew on YouTube, as they posted impressive, raw, passionate covers such as Shai’s “If I Ever Fall in Love” and “Since You’ve Been Gone” by Day 26. Brandon and 4Shore were gaining even more momentum and in 2011 were contestants on Season 1 of FOX’s The X-Factor. The group worked with industry icons Simon Cowell, Pharrell Williams, L.A. Reed, Paula Abdul, and Nicole Scherzinger. After being eliminated from The X-Factor, 4Shore traveled to Atlanta and continued to pursue their music career. In 2012, Brandon decided to leave 4Shore and finish college in VA; the group disbanded but remain great friends.
The singer/songwriter/actor, spent nearly a year performing for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. Soon after, Showell decided to audition for The Voice. Successfully joining Adam Levine’s team, Brandon’s biggest feat to date is being a contestant on Season 13 of NBC’s The Voice.
