About Brandon McPhee….A decade from his first few notes, Brandon has achieved phenomenal success both as a Champion Accordionist and made his mark on the Country/Irish music scene. He has worked with the cream of the country music world from Daniel O’Donnell and Philomena Begley to Foster & Allen ! The Brandon McPhee Experience feature highly regarded and successful musicians who have many years of experience in the music industry. It says a great deal that Brandon is surrounded by such talented (and dare one say, mature) artists.

Brandon has a growing catalogue of both Traditional Scottish and Country Music Albums (Pan Record label). Which has led to multiple songs reaching charted levels in Joyce Ramgatie Country Music Chart and prior European Country Music Chart.

After a performance at Buckingham Palace Prince Charles was forced to remark: “I don’t know how you move your fingers so fast. It’s quite incredible”.

Of course, peer pressure was never far away, but Brandon stuck to his guns and became more immersed in Scottish and Country music. He recorded his first album at 11 years of age ( A Starr Is Born). Brandon purchased a second hand accordion from Ireland on which he recorded the album, the iconic 3 row Will Starr’s ‘Shand Morino’ accordion. He then went on to win first place at the Caithness Music Festival on button key accordion, first place in his age group at the Lairg Music Festival and onto first place in the All Scotland Junior, and eventually Senior Scottish Accordion Championship.

He took up singing at the age of 16 much influenced by the music of Don Williams, Elvis Presley, Billy Ray Cyrus and Johnny Cash, the latter two, his favourite singers!

When asked about the weight of the accordion Brandon laughs. “Yes, it is quite heavy. I used to sit down and play, but these days I stand. It could possibly be the weight lifters’ instrument of the music world.Brandon got that magic touch on the accordion his velvet tones has lead him to multiple awards as an accomplished singer.
