Since his debut, Brandon October has become a South African music icon, having performed thou-sands of live local and international shows. He is widely regarded as one of the best vocalists South Africa has ever produced.

His performance of ‘Barcelona’ with opera star Zanne Stapelberg with the Cape Town Philhar-monic Orchestra is a concert highlight and his rendition of ‘Impossible Dream’ is breath taking to experience. Notable audience members have included state presidents Nelson Mandela, Cyril Ramaphosa, Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.

With his singular vocal and performance style, Brandon always manages to look and sound fresh. It’s no wonder that booking agents constantly recommend Brandon October to their clients. Apart from English and Afrikaans, Brandon has performed in French, German, Italian, Zulu and Xhosa.
