Brandon and the Bees Knees is a Collaboration of soulful hardworking musicians fronted by singer-song writer Brandon Eardley.

Born and raised on Cape Cod, MA, Brandon Eardley plays a mix of rock, reggae, folk, motown and blues that’s sure to be embraced by fans of Bob Marley,Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, Slightly Stoopid and the Grateful Dead.


Brandon’s experience would be impressive for someone who’d spent decades honing their craft, but for a musician who’s 32 years old, it’s genuinely exceptional. Eardley has toured nationally with The Expendables, Passafire, Iration, John Beninghof, and Pour Habit, and has played guitar/managed his original project Roots Down Below for over a decade.His touring experience had him performing at 47 venues in 52 days, including The Fillmore (San Fransisco) and the House of Blues (Hollywood), and sharing the stage with artists like Wyclef Jean, The Wailers, Slightly Stoopid, Rusted Root, Burning Spear, Naughty By Nature, Barrington Levy, Gym Class Heros, Toots and the Maytals, and Long Beach Shortbus (featuring members of Sublime).  To further add to Brandon’s diverse resume, he also played guitar for hip hop group Audio McSwagger and recorded guitar on a track that featured rap artist The Game. After playing well over 2,000 shows with his original band and over 3000 shows overall since the age of 12, one can credit Brandon’s impeccable talent and laid-back nature to his ability to juggle a plethora of varied music projects with ease. 


During the summers 2011-2014, Brandon managed and performed in a musical collaboration called The Dune Billy All-Stars, which has featured well over 100 of the top musicians of Cape Cod and from around the world doing over 100 gigs between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day. Brandon also plays guitar for the reggae band Shango Axe, backing steel drum player, Michael Gabriel. Eardley also sits in with the beachgrass outfit The Old Silver Band. Keeping where the climate is just perfect, Brandon tours the Caribbean almost every winter doing tour/stage management as well as performing.

In 2012 Brandon moved to San Francisco California after touring the west coast and performing two shows at the legendary whiskey a go go on sunset strip in Hollywood CA.

There he played the 50th anniversary of the whiskey a go go and walked the red carpet before opening for Martha Davis and the motels.

He taught after school program guitar and club jam for Nusku arts out of Oakland Ca, for three years while being signed to VRE (velvet rope entertainment) a label from the Bay Area.

He performed in the VRE house band supporting award winning singers and artist from American Idol.

Never taking a break from the music he also performed with a Bay Area reggae singer I-trinity as well on performing weekly open mics and singer song writer showcases.

Brandon currently lives in Sonoma, California. He has started a new project called Brandon and the Bee’s Knees consisting of top notch players  from the Sonoma county and the Bay Area.
