Biography

Brandon Patton’s solo career was born from the ashes of the band three against four. The Boston area trio broke up in 2000 and Patton moved to San Francisco, where he ended up playing bass for Matt Nathanson, Solea, and John Vanderslice.

Patton released the album “Should Confusion” in 2004 on his own label, then moved to Brooklyn, NY. Buzz for the album began with glowing reviews from small websites like kweevak.com and indie-music.com, and grew into an invitation to play at the Newport Folk Festival and a nomination for “Album of the Year” by the 2004 Independent Music Awards.

Soon after, an internet radio station show called “Indie Pop Rocks” on SOMA.FM started spinning the song “What’s the Worst That Could Happen,” and BBC America aired it as well. Patton’s name started showing up on myspace.com lists and getting downloaded off CDBaby.com and iTunes. Colleges started calling him to come and perform.

He eventually signed a publishing deal with ACM Records. He is currently working on his next album, which will be released on his own label, Merlin Pool.
