Brandon Egerton is a hidden arsenal of wisdom. His knowledge of the music industry is vast and has been able to help me understand how to make it applicable in my journey as a songwriter and artist. If you need a guide on how to build your career he is the man to know. - Joel Buckner, Artist

I have been in the music business for over 3 years. Most people who I have interacted with have either been unreliable, full of themselves, or not worth the money or time. Often, these people conspicuously avoid name dropping saying such things as “I worked with someone…I won’t say who, but it’s a big name.” I am often not impressed with these people. But Brandon was a different story. He was a wealth of knowledge. He gave my band an inside peek into the daily workings of a record company and illustrated to us how we could do the same for ourselves. He gave us some new ideas that we had never thought of and put some other things into perspective. Also, he was very genuine (a rarity for this business). I felt that his first interest was just to consult and help us achieve our dream. He definitely wasn’t there for the money but rather because of his love of the business. It was an awesome experience and we highly recommend using his services. He was very matter of fact and when he mentioned big names such as Kiki Sheard, he wasn’t trying to impress us but rather using his experience to help us. It was great. We were very appreciative of his time and we will be using him again in the future. – Quintin Evans, The Gentlemen of Revolutionary Sound, Artist
