Brandon has been singing and performing since the age of 5, and it comes as no surprise being the grandson and son of musicians. His Grandfather played fiddle and sang in Bluegrass bands throughout the 30ís & 40ís, and his Father is an avid banjo and guitar player. This musical environment growing up fueled his desire for the spotlight. Thereís no question Brandon was destined to be a performer and songwriter. Itís in his blood.

While in High School, he spent hours playing in bands and learning the ins and outs of the performing scene. In 1997 while in school at Oklahoma State University, Brandon teamed up with Jordan Doolen and Kit Nowlin to form the rock band Twelve Pearls. The band would span 8 years, 2 albums, and a countless number of tour dates and fans around the world. Not to mention sharing the stage with bands such as Cross Canadian Ragweed, The All-American Rejects, Hinder, and Robby Krieger of the Doors just to name a few. Music has always been a passion for Brandon, and in 2000, he graduated with a Bachelorís Degree in Music and Business Administration from Oklahoma City University.

One of the places that shaped his sound is playing several years on the legendary "Strip" in Stillwater, OK. Playing with Twelve Pearls as well as acoustic shows on the Strip opened up a world of music. The Stillwater music scene embraced every type of musician and allowed Brandon to grow musically and hone his performance skills. It was in this scene that Brandon met Steve Rice and together they began performing a weekly acoustic show at the Wormy Dog in Stillwater.

In October of 2004 Brandon was asked to join the band No Justice. With a tour schedule of 180 shows a year, 1 studio album, and a Live at Billy Bobís album under his belt over a 5 year stretch, he has firmly planted his feet in the Red Dirt music scene. His writing contributions on the self titled No Justice album released in 2006 include: Still Missing You, Breathe, and By My Side.

In September of 2009, Brandon decided to step out on his own and part ways with No Justice. Thereís no sign of slowing down anytime soon for him though as he released his first solo CD titled "The Good Times" on June 14, 2011. Brandon has been performing acoustic & full band shows around Oklahoma, Kansas, & Texas to promote his CD. He's currently working on his next album to be released in the near future. He's shared the stage with Adam Hood, Mama Sweet, Johnny Cooper, Jason Eady, Chad Sullins, Bobby Duncan, Mike Mancy, Brison Bursey, Joey Green, Scott Evans, The Red Dirt Rangers, Zach Walther, Eli Young Band, George Devore, Stoney Larue, Bleu Edmondson, and many more.

An outstanding debut solo album from Oklahoman Brandon Jackson. "The Good Times" has the goods! Fantastic originals and talented musicians culminate in a Must Buy! Tunes like the title track " The Good Times" "Baltimore" "Dancing" & the first single " Just a Good Friend" are Great songs that keep your toes tapping throughout this album. Combined with great cover versions of Roger Clyne's "Green & Dumb" & Radney Fosters classic " Folding Money" that have become staples to Brandon's Live shows, combine for one amazing album from the former Lead Guitarist of the popular Oklahoma Band "No Justice" There are a few pleasant surprises on this album as well, including "Oklahoma County Line" "Crazy 'Bout You" & "Now That I Found You" just to name a few. All in all an A+ Freshman effort from Brandon Jackson! I highly recommend this album
