Brandt Morain “Volume One” is an album wrapped in the musical expertise of two talented guys. 

Jared M. Brandt and Eddie B. Morain Sr. have it all—style, substance, and sound."

"Brandt has more than 25 years experience as a professional musician and electrical engineer

and has spent time performing rock to reggae throughout the Northwest. Having dipped into a

myriad of genres, his vocal, drum and keyboard skills are well honed to deliver a solid performance every time."

"Morain’s guitar and vocals are just as impressive given his years spent playing country music 

while touring the Western U.S.  His strong guitar and vocal performances add just the right balance

to the album’s rich sound."

Radio Appearances and Current Broadcasts

Jared Brandt appeared on “The Manning Report” with Dr. James Manning.

(broadcast date -- April 17, 2012)


                                   Click here to listen to the interview.

We wish to thank Dr. Manning and his staff for their wonderful hospitality and support! 

Brandt Morain is now part of “The Manning Report” program.  Dr. Manning uses segments from our album as bumper music for his show.  “The Manning Report” is broadcast 5 days a week from New York City.


In February of 2013, Record Labels “FrostByte Media” and “Sonorous Entertainment”, who have as their distribution partner Universal Music Group, contacted Brandt Morain with the intent of signing us.  We were tempted by this deal considering that Universal Music Group is the largest distributor of music in the world.

But alas, after several weeks of negotiations, we simply could not come

an agreement on the terms of the contracts.  

We wish to thank Sonorous Entertainment and FrostByte Media for

considering us!
