50% of the music business is controlled by 3 major record labels.
If you are not partnered with one of them you are independently in business by yourself, doing any and everything to keep your artistic dreams alive and thriving.
This is how I spend my time:
Writing new music, creating audio and video productions, procuring live shows, performing live, rehearsing shows, promoting my recorded music, engaging with fans, traveling in support of my products, creating brands, graphics designs and merchandise for sale.
Lately, I have been organizing my catalog for sync with film and TV.
If you are here reading this, just know I truly appreciate your time and interest.
The best compliment that I can receive as an artist is you connecting with me in some personal way, commenting, sharing, posting, signing up for an occasional email, attending a live show or letting me know my music has found its way to you. This is your way of you telling me that what I am doing matters to you…
Brian Lee Bender, is writing his own unique story, one song at a time.
He is truly independent and seizing the opportunities of a connected world, determined to bring value to the world, where we don’t need genres, fresh is good, honest is good, hey “this is my sound” I hope you feel me through it.
Nominated twice for “breakthrough” country artist of 2018, and 2017 by New Music Weekly, he writes for everyone, while blending his musical influences of rock and pop into his California country sound.
As a seasoned live performer Brian is looking to have a positive impact on those who needs the blessing of music in their lives. Unique and prolific as a creator, he is aware of the listener’s needs to relate to the moment and is just as happy playing the great songs of others, to break the ice and share sound with others.
Make no mistake, Brian seeks to have his own voice heard, forever comparing his work to his peers. “When I play my own song next to a great song everyone knows, I expect that the listener will appreciate what I have done, and understand my hard work and passion for what sound and story can do. If I am who I say I am, a true artist, then my songs will compete and neither of us will not be wasting our time”
His self proclaimed OCD approach to everything musical and technological brings out a beast load of skills, from playing most instruments at a studio level, to writing award winning songs. Brian knows how to “mix with the masters” and owns a project studio where he can be seen producing music for up and coming artists.
In 2018, his recent work, hit the globe with radio and video success “I’m Here To Party With You”, a catchy fun song kind of makes you want to shake a little and sing along. He continues to release singles from this record which showcase “his best work yet”.
In 2017, several of his songs have climbed the charts in New Country Music, “Drive Forever” and “Girlfriend No. 2”
He still believes in writing to create a listening experience by sequencing tracks into an album, much like a DJ set.
Play a full record through and see if you can feel his musical knowledge shining through in the sound of his work. Hopefully you feel the energy and the magic he brings to all of his work.
