The Virginia/Washington D.C. based artist, Brandon Showell has been at it for years. Born and raised in Virginia Beach, VA, Brandon made his professional debut with the group 4Shore. The group consisted of four solo artists who decided to form a power-house vocal group in high school, 2008. 4Shore began singing on platforms (Beach Street U.S.A) at the Virginia Beach Ocean Front that year and started to gain a lot of attention from locals and tourists. Their following grew on YouTube, as they posted impressive, raw, passionate covers such as Shai’s “If I Ever Fall in Love” and “Since You’ve Been Gone” by Day 26. Brandon and 4Shore were gaining even more momentum and in 2011 were contestants on Season 1 of FOX’s The X-Factor. The group worked with industry icons Simon Cowell, Pharrell Williams, L.A. Reed, Paula Abdul, and Nicole Scherzinger. After being eliminated from The X-Factor, 4Shore traveled to Atlanta, GA and continued to pursue a career as music artists. In 2012 Brandon decided to leave 4Shore and finish college in VA; the group dis-banded soon after, but remain great friends.

The burning desire to get on stage never left and Brandon spent nearly a year performing for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. Showell continued to study with vocal coach, Sam Shin of El Melody Vocal Studio for a year and decided to audition for NBC’s The Voice.
