Chicago's very own “ Brandon James" is ready for success, and he wants you to know it. The r&b and soul singer is creating a strong buzz with the recent release of his video “There She Goes” on YouTube. "There She Goes" is the title track for the two-track E.P released on August 3rd, 2018.
Chicago native Brandon James was born "Brandon James Foster". He states that he "started doing music as an outlet for depression early in life. I wasn't very popular in school and I was considered a latchkey kid due to my mother's work schedule and my father's battles with alcoholism." On a teacher's suggestion to find extracurricular activities, Brandon joined the choir. He finished the eighth grade with a determination to elevate his understanding of music and succeed with his own music.

He has played with Earth, Wind & Fire and performed at some of Chicago’s most notable venues including the UIC Pavilion and the House of Blues. Brandon has also earned a degree in music performance and business from the Columbia College of Chicago. Forever seeking to share his story and testimony, Brandon seeks to inspire, touch hearts and provoke thought with his music.
