Homegrown in the beautiful, rugged Black Hills, Brandon Jones has made a name for himself as one of the Midwest’s premiere entertainers. In the last decade, the red-bearded Rapid City native went from strumming in his garage and a regional appearance at the Texaco Country Showdown to opening for some of country music’s legendary acts. With a powerful, rustic voice, unmatched stage energy, and a cast of world-class musicians to his flanks, Brandon Jones and his band have been invited to share the stage with BlackHawk, Sawyer Brown, Clint Black, Jordan Davis, Jo Dee Messina, Doug Stone, Aaron Watson, Kolby Cooper, Koe Wetzel, Diamond Rio, Chancey Williams, Ned LeDoux, Casey Donahew, and many others on stages across the American Heartland. The band has headlined or performed at Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, Wild Bill Days, Rapid City Stock Show, National Western Stock Show, and the South Dakota State Fair.
In 2019, Brandon Jones released his debut self-titled EP with Grammy Award winning engineer and producer Mills Logan, featuring “Black Hills Back Road” and “Kiss Me All Night,” which had considerable play on regional country radio and YouTube, with his most popular music video being “Black Hills Back Road.” The album release led to The Brandon Jones Band winning Rapid City Journal’s “Best Band in The Black Hills” and New Artist of The Year by the Rocky Mountain Country Music Awards.
The artist’s first release since the pandemic, “Picture” is set to debut as a single with an accompanying music video in March of 2022. The band’s latest works are engineered by Tom Frear at Cottonwood Studios in Rapid City and mastered by Mills Logan.
