As a songwriter, he has landed top placements with many major brands for TV, Film, and Gaming. 


Growing up in west Texas, Brandon started playing guitar and writing songs at age 13. Upon graduation from high school, the rock band, which he fronted, joined the Vans Warped Tour and traveled throughout the United States. After moving to Nashville, Ray was hired as a guitarist/background singer for artists Brett Eldredge and Florida Georgia Line while touring with Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, and Tim McGraw. In the spring of 2018, he signed a production deal with Keith Urban and Ross Copperman. Under their production, he released charting singles “Ends of the Earth” and “Small Talkin,” as well as a 6-song EP titled “Body Language.” Since then, he has continued writing, recording, touring,  and releasing billboard charting songs. He records background vocals on major label records like Megadeth’s latest album “The Sick, The Dying, and the Dead” which earned a Grammy Nomination for Best Metal Performance for the 2023 Grammys. 


Most recently, while still working in the country music industry, Ray’s songwriting direction is almost exclusively TV/Film/Ad synch music. Working closely with his publisher Warner Chappell Music  and synch rep Katie Jelen at Honestly Good Music, his songs have been placed with Netflix, Hulu, Disney Plus, Apple TV Plus, Magnolia Network, American Idol, FIFA World Cup ’22, Fox Sports, NFL Network, MLB Network, MSC Cruises,  Madden ‘22, NASCAR Ignition ’21, Norwegian Cruise Lines, and many other major brands.
