Q & A’s with Brandon Montel
Has music always been your first career choice?
Yes, music has always been my first career. Completed some of college on a music scholarship for music education and minor in vocal performance.
Do you think your upbringing has contributed to your style as an artist?
My upbringing contributed to who I am in so many ways. I’ve always wanted to be a RnB/Pop singer, but knew that gospel would always play a part in my life as well. Singing in church and middle school/high school singing competitions kept the door open for Other music genres in my life.
The biggest obstacle I had to overcome as an artist was to not compare myself to other gifts. I went through an insecure point in my life where I felt I wasn’t good enough. I had family and friends to remind me every day that everyone is unique in their own way. I just have to be confident with who I am and continue to show my uniqueness through my music and image.
Who are your biggest musical influences?
My biggest musical influences are from Gospel: Mary Mary, Kierra Sheard, Smokie Norful to RnB/Pop: Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Tevin Campbell to Justin Timberlake, Beyoncé, Usher and Brandy.
When will you feel like you’ve made it?
I will feel like I made it once my music is shared all over the world and people receive it in a positive way. I want people to relate to my music and to know that we all go through similar situations in life that we can all overcome.
