Springing forth following eight years of tours as Narrator with platinum selling rock band Trans Siberian Orchestra to a feature role in the life story of Gospel legend BeBe Winans, Born For This: The Musical, singer-songwriter Phillip Brandon is making good on the promise of his purposed and abundant gifts to share songs of love and optimism all his own via his powerful debut album, The Story Begins - a warm wraparound throwback of soul-stirring Contemporary Jazz, R&B and Pop.
