- Dear Friends:
I wanted to send out a special "Thank You" for all of your
support the past few years! Today I was given the opportunity to
have one of my songs played on LA's Country Station 105.1 Go
Country, and it was a very surreal experience. I have always
grown up dreaming I could one day hear one of my own songs on
the radio and today, that dream was realized. It would not have
happened if it weren't for YOU...so I wanted to say "Thank You"
for your support and encouragement!
I am so blessed and if this year
is anything like the past year, I am one lucky man!
God Bless and thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Peter Brandon will join hundreds of other artists banding
together with the band Clementine with one cause for 19 days of
events spanning the U.S. and 12 Countries to reach out to 100’s
of missing people and Bring ONE Home…
The Squeaky Wheel Tour “SWT” runs from October 17, through
November 4. This worldwide tour will feature several hundred
missing people profiled by 100’s of artists performing in over
300 events throughout the 50 states and twelve countries. The
focus of the events is to gain attention for 100’s of missing
people in an effort to bring at least ONE home.
Gina Bos, last seen October 17,
2000 disappeared after leaving Duggan’s Pub in Lincoln, Nebraska
following an open mic night. Her car was found outside with the
trunk ajar and her guitar inside. She is 5’7”, brown hair, brown
eyes, anyone with information should call Lincoln Police
Department 402-441-7204 or 402-441-7708.
Entertainers earmark their events to profile a local missing
person or persons. They talk about the local missing person and
ask attendees to take a flyer to post throughout their
community. A daily updated list of the events, locations, dates
and most importantly the missing to be profiled may be FOUND at
Peter Brandon is one of many
artists using their talents to help this grassroots effort to
bring attention to the missing. Clementine member and founder of
the Squeaky Wheel Tour Jannel Rap’s heartache became a fight to
gain attention for her sister causing her to realize she was not
alone. Hundreds of thousands of families had the same fight.
Their loved ones simply vanished with no media hook. She had to
do something to change that. SWT is held every year at this
time. This year Jannel’s new band, Clementine
www.Clementineband.com (that was conceived during SWT
2006) will be touring the US the entire 19 days profiling the
missing and filming a reality TV Series FINDing Gina slated to
air Spring 2008.

- Locally world famous:
Peter Brandon is a champion of the old-fashioned love song.

"Locally World Famous" is an occasional feature profiling
up-and-coming musical artists from Orange County.
Hometown: Huntington Beach
On the Web:
About the artist: If you saw Peter Brandon on the street, you
might not expect him to be Orange County's next country star.
Brandon doesn't sport 20-gallon hats, snakeskin boots or
He does sport a thick goatee and drive a Ford F-150, and he does
love a good ol' fashioned country love song.
"For me it's about heartfelt lyrics," said Brandon, who works as a
manager at Anchor Blue in Brea Mall, and is a worship leader at a
Costa Mesa church.
Seven of the 11 songs on his new album, "Drive Real Fast," set for
release on Feb. 18, are ballads.
Brandon's fully aware he's releasing his country album in a county
where there's no real country scene. In Cahoots in Fullerton is
one of the few country venues in the area, and K-FROG in San
Bernardino is the only local country radio station since KZLA shut
And Orange County, mostly known for throngs of punk and indie
bands, hasn't produced a major country music megastar.
"There are a lot of closet country fans out there. Hopefully I can
provide an outlet for all of them," said Brandon.
He plans to move to Nashville if he gets a good response to the
The beginning: Brandon developed an affinity for country music
when his Cypress College batting coach played country tunes at
practice. He was drawn to music's honest, sincere lyrics.
When he transferred to the University of Nebraska as a broadcast
journalism major, Brandon had access to sound studios and
equipment and spent late nights recording country music songs as a
The hobby turned into a career goal in 2000, after Brandon wrote
the song "Brand New Wings" for his best friend's little sister's
"I guess God needed one little angel / to take care of heavenly
things / and though it is hard / I know in my heart / you're
flying with brand new wings."
More than half of the 1,000 mourners at the service wanted a copy
of the song.
"I really realized what a song can do to people. I wrote that song
in 15 minutes and it changed the outlook on something so tragic
for so many people," Brandon said.
That same year, Brandon asked his parents for an unusual Christmas
gift – studio time to record a three-song demo. He got his gift
and eventually traveled to Nashville to shop his demo around.
Brandon didn't get any immediate response and was prepared to
leave Nashville disappointed.
While he was boarding his flight back to Orange County, he handed
his demo to a man in front of him in line. That man was Dave
Northrup, drummer for Travis Tritt.
Northrup liked the demo and flew Brandon out a couple of months
later to record a self-titled debut album.
With a solid demo in hand, Brandon was able to book shows and draw
crowds in Orange County – even selling out two shows in one night
at Martini Blues in Huntington Beach.
Influences: Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw, James Taylor, Steven Curtis
Chapman and Chicago.
Hope you had an AWESOME Christmas and New Years!
Just wanted to say thanks for your support this past year and
looking forward to what 2007 has in store!
It has started out great with a nice feature in the OC Register on

We are also working VERY hard on the CD Release Party that will be
held at the Coach House Sunday, Feb 18th @ 7 pm. This will be
different than ANY show we have done before and will be the first
day my new CD "Drive Real Fast" will be available! Tickets are
only $15 and can be purchased through the Coach House directly @
(949) 496-8930. Dinner RSVP's will get you the best seats
possible. THIS IS AN ALL AGES SHOW!
Hope to see you there for a GREAT night of fun!
Thanks again for your support!
- Peter grew up in Fullerton,
and attended Sonora High School. He excelled in baseball and
basketball and was very involved in his high school youth group at
church. It was there where Peter fell in love with acoustic guitar
and he began playing worship songs.
After graduating in 1993, he attended Cypress Junior College and
played for the Charger Baseball team. In 1994, they won the State
Championship and he earned a scholarship to the University of
Nebraska to pitch for the Huskers. This was Peter's first time
away from home, and he found himself writing many songs. As a
Broadcasting major, Peter was able to get into the recording
booths late at night to record his music.
After graduation, Peter came home to California. For few years his
dreams were on hold. But USA Network's "Nashville Star" was
holding auditions and Peter decided to dust off his dreams and
take a shot. He made it to the regionals where he performed to a
standing room only crowd at "Montana's" in San Dimas. In 2004,
Peter met Travis Tritt's drummer, David Norththrop. David helped
Peter arrange a recording session with Nashville recording
engineer Frank Green - the result was Peter's self-titled album,
Peter's musical influences include Garth Brooks, Steven Curtis
Chapman and James Taylor. Peter also enjoys playing basketball and
softball, snowboarding, traveling, and loves roller coasters.
Peter is the son of Jack and Kathy and has a
younger brother, Jason and a sister-in-law, Darcy.
