Brian Yandell is an extremely talented singer/ songwriter/ musician from a musically rich family. Raised in Heavener, Oklahoma, USA, he began piano studies at the uncommonly age of four. Brian remembers his family listening to him practice Bach and Beethoven at the piano, then closing out his practice by performing his father*s favorites *by ear* - tunes by FloydCramer and Hank Williams, SR. He started singing and playing the piano for his church at age nine, then joined his family*s Southern Gospel group, THE YANDELLS, at fourteen. His summers were spent on the road with his family, which also included *gigs* in other countries- such as Spain, Ecuador and Mexico. It was while touring with his family that Brian began composing music.

After high school, Brian enrolled at Oklahoma Bapt University on a full music scholarship and became involved in several different music ensembles, continued to compose music and orchestrate in his spare time; and had the opportunity to perform lead roles in such musicals as Robber Bridegroom, Joseph the Dreamer and Carrousel. While at OBU and spending many weekends meeting his family on the road to perform, Brian was discovered by BENSON RECORDS artist, PRIORITY. Soon after, he joined the successful young quartet and began a three year relationship with WORD/HOMELAND Records and the publishing company of WELCOME HOME PRESS, in Nashville, TN. During his involvement with PRIORITY, Brian had several cuts recorded by the group, and saw his first single released to radio, *Remember Me,* which raced to the top of the charts. PRIORITY was soon a recognized name in positive music, and became a headlining act at Branson, Missouri*s SILVER DOLLAR CITY. During the off season, Brian and the group would tour extensively, performing over 250 dates a year.

To date, Brian has performed with the likes of country artist, Brad Paisley, the Randall Brothers, Trenna Barnes of Cowboy Crush, JoDee Messina, JoHana Janet, Genny Owens, Vegas-act/Impressionaist, Paul Tanner, the legendary Vestal Goodman, country's Tracy Lawrence, Pam Tillis and Little Texas; as well other top country, pop, jazz and gospel acts. Brian is sure to make an impression on the hearts of his audience, in any art form, for another important reason; his heart is as big as his talents and his passion lies in every aspect of these gifts which will certainly move you to an experience you will not soon forget.
