He finished the eighth grade with a determination to elevate his understanding of music and succeed with his own music. To better his craft, Brandon James has taken voice lessons from Bobby Wilsyn, Ars Musica, and Andrew Schultze.

  1. What has been the most difficult thing you’ve had to endure in your life or the music business so far?
