Brandon was born May 24, 1995 in Louisville, Kentucky. He is the son of Mike Stewart and Melanie Tomlinson Stewart. Brandon was raised with his two brothers, Ryan and Tyler Stewart, in Carrollton, Kentucky and attended Carroll County Public Schools.
He took piano and voice lessons at eight years old, and soon after, found himself on stage by the age of fourteen, appearing as Danny Zuko in a sold out run of Grease, the musical. He soon began booking other leads in productions such as: Les Miserables, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, A Christmas Carol, Hello Dolly and more. Brandon then went on to open for George Jones on his Farewell Tour, right before making it on American Idol in Season 12.
Brandon graduated Carroll County High School in May 2013 and attended college at Bellarmine University before moving to Los Angeles to attend film school. During Brandon's first year in LA, he played lead in over 40 short films, landed two pilots and won his first award at Underground Film Festival in 2015.
Last year Brandon's movie, "Future World," released starring James Franco, Lucy Liu, Snoop Dogg and more powerhouse icons. He signed with AwesomenessTV in a brand deal that relaunched his YouTube channel, pouring out award winning content that won a collegiate Emmy, multiple Atlanta Film Festival nominations, an AT&T festival honor and more. Soon after his relaunch, Viacom acquired the company. Now Brandon works alongside Viacom Digital Studios executives for the official rollout of his new digital media conglomerate, BRANDON TV.
Brandon resides in Los Angeles. He recently wrapped his new feature film, "Moondance" set to premiere this year, as well as his return to the judging panel on the #1 singing competition web series, "Shine." He is in development for new shows, "Rusty Camel," "America's Voice," "Drylands" and "Crestmore" all set for production this year under the Viacom umbrella.
"Nothing makes me happier than inspiring others to live their dream."
