From the age of 14, Brandon Blakeley has had the goal of making music his career. Having started out playing with all different types of bands, he uses techniques from a broad range of genres but has found his place in emo, alternative, and pop punk. Brandon was self taught his entire life—from playing covers with friends, to tuning out of class to finger tap through a song's drum part. Going on his first tour at 18, he learned this is how he wanted to spend his life. Brandon would eventually come to form an emo influenced pop punk band called Kayak Jones, in which he drums and helps with songwriting. This lead to his joining of Hot Mulligan who has recently teamed up with No Sleep Records as well as APA Booking Agency. Both acts are looking forward to a promising future!"
