This is an incredible opportunity for 24 people to enjoy an intimate concert with Branden & James hosted in a beautiful Santa Fe home. Includes appetizers and wine. Concert to take place on May 30th or 31st, to be determined by Branden & James.
BRANDEN & JAMES, “a powerhouse cello and vocal duo” (The Fight Magazine, Los Angeles), brings the soulful timbre of James on his cello combined with Branden’s emotional and powerful vocals, creating a sound that leaves audiences feeling moved and inspired. “…the always supportive, sometimes haunting power of the cello accompanying Branden’s voice solidifies the classical sound, adds new depth to the popular, and allows the audience to just sit back and take it in…so movingly, that you may forget to breathe!” says Paul Lisnek – Host of Broadway in Chicago Backstage.
The energy and fervor behind their music has a story to tell of their unique pairing. Branden had a successful career on stage and in recording prior to his meeting the Australian cellist, James. Some of Branden’s accolades include finishing as a finalist on season 8 of America’s Got Talent, appearances at The Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago and Los Angeles Opera, two world tours with the renowned Twelve Tenors and two solo releases worldwide. James brought to the mix his own share of musical accomplishments, accompanying Olivia Newton John, Idina Menzel and Bernadette Peters in multiple concerts. He initially came on board to music direct one of many charity concerts in which Branden was performing, and their connection was so immense they began to play together regularly.
Since forming as a duo, they have shared the stage with legends such as Sarah Maclachlan, Rita Moreno, Sally Struthers and Loretta Divine. They recently debuted at Feinstein’s/54 Below in New York City to critical acclaim. They regularly entertain for Princess, Oceania, Azamara, Seabourne, Regent and Silverseas. In 2019 they will make their debuts at The Savannah Center in Florida, Feinstein’s at The Nikko in San Francisco and The Lensic Center for the Performing Arts in Santa Fe, NM.
