Biography

Brandon Richard Flowers (born June 21, 1981 - Las Vegas, Nevada) is the vocalist and keyboardist in the American indie rock band The Killers. His older brother Shane, got him into music like The Smiths and Morrissey, The Beatles, The Cure and Queen. Brandon has played with U2, New Order, Pet Shop Boys, Bruce Springsteen and other bands of which he is a fan.

While listening to the radio in his car after his very first college class, Flowers heard the song “Changes” by David Bowie. He fell in love with the piece and realized immediately that he wanted to be part of the music industry.

His career in music began when he became a member of Las Vegas band BLUSH RESPONSE (this was where he discovered he could sing), but he was fired after refusing to move to Los Angeles, California, with the rest of the band. After leaving BLUSH RESPONSE, Flowers realised that he still wanted a career in music and came across an ad for guitarist David Keuning. After many short-term bassist and drummers, the pair met Ronnie Vanucci (drums) and Mark Stoermer (bass) and the band has been together since. In 2004 the group released Hot Fuss (after having toured with Morrissey in multiple sold out shows), 2006 - Sam’s Town, 2007 - Sawdust, 2008 - Day & Age
