Originally from Florida, Brandon Mayer studied music and film at UCLA.  After living in Spain and New York, he returned to California and, while working as a schoolteacher, made the beautiful full-length Sea of Stars, which was self-released in the fall of 2000, soon after followed by the EP Palm Tree and Culver.

As an ensemble and solo artist, Mayer has toured and performed extensively.  Also a composer, he has written music for theater and films that have been broadcasted on television and performed/screened at festivals throughout the U.S., Europe, and Asia.  Mayer lives and works in Los Angeles, where he teaches music at Blind Childrens Center and UCLA.  

A collaboration with producer David Rosa and a collection of LA-Oakland based musicians, Brandon Mayer & the Hidden Powers have completed work on a new full-length recording, Nothing Without Love, which was released in 2007.  It is available at Amoeba Records (Hollywood), iTunes,, and other online outlets.
