BrandonLee Cierley is an up and coming Saxophonist born in Tacoma, Wa whose music seemingly combines elements from sounds that have influenced his musical voice such as jazz, hiphop, Lofi, and R&B. During his time pursuing his Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science & Music, founded the genre-bending group formerly known as 322 and releasing two albums “Emergence” & self-titled album “322”
During his uprising in the music scene, BrandonLee continuously seeks instruction to master his saxophone craft by working with multiple instructors such as Pacific Northwest Saxophone great Tracy Knoop and one of this generation’s emerging artists Braxton Cook. This ongoing instruction has been a catalyst for BrandonLee’s search for his musical voice.
While being a bandleader and solo artist, BrandonLee has showcased his talents working with some of the music scene’s most exciting producers/artists around the world such as; Jam of the Week Founder/Portland-based Trumpeter Farnell Newton, EyeLoveBrandon, Jonny Tobin, multi-instrumentalist from Portland Machado Mijiga, Hunter Gillam, & Sxlxmxn to name a few. In 2018, BrandonLee Cierley ventured into exploits outside of his staple genre to be a guest artist with TwoFriends, LA Dj Duo, at sold-out music festivals Lucky & Paradiso.
