Biography


Self taught drummer, Cheney Brannon, started playing drums at age 9 in the town of Gainesville, GA. just north of Atlanta. It was there, at the age of 11, that he joined his first band, Chapter One. After 8 years with his school buddies and everyone going their separate ways, Cheney decided to move to Atlanta at 18 to take a shot at the music scene there. After working with several well-known artists live and in the studio, Cheney joined multi-platinum rock band Collective Soul in 2008. With Collective Soul, Cheney recorded on two of their albums "Afterwards" and self titled "Collective Soul(rabbit)" as well as TV performances on "The Tonight Show" w/ Jay Leno, the 2009 NFC championship half-time show, The Georgia Music Hall of Fame(x2), and many, many shows in the USA and Internationally.

In 2012, Cheney decided to leave Collective Soul and pursue some other music opportunities out of Nashville and Atlanta such as country artist Gary Allan, up and coming pop star Riley Biederer, Cheap Thrill(Jeff LaBar & Eric Brittingham of Cinderella), John Corabi(Motley Crue, Union, The Scream) and Joel Kosche (Collective Soul) just to name a few. Also, talented in studio engineering, producing, and singing, Cheney brings a lot to the table musically. "I love music and want to be a part of all it has to offer" said Cheney "I want to be one of those oldschool producer guys, sitting behind a kit or a mixing console in my 60's still doing records".
