Biography of Brandon Colbein Skeie—Singer and Songwriter
Since you’ve come to this post, I’m guessing that you’re probably familiar with Brandon Colbein Skeie’s musical works. Well, I did not know about this talented singer until recently (4 Feb 2020) when I came across him on twitter.
For several days, I was watching a TV series called “Whiskey Cavalier”, which has John Newman’s “Love Me Again” as the theme song. I hadn’t heard that amazing tune for a while, so I decided to check it out on YouTube. And, from there I chose to share it on twitter just to remind people of the timeless jam. The next day, I logged into my twitter account and what I found was amazing. John Newman himself and several other people had liked my tweet, and I felt pretty awesome. In addition, I noticed Brandon Colbein had followed my account, and I could tell he’s a celebrity, because of the blue tick next to his account name. I was surprised and humbled by the gesture, because I’m just an ordinary Kenyan lady who is not famous in any way. It was super nice, and I’m hoping that he won’t ‘unfollow’ me (any avid twitter user knows that it is hard to maintain a loyal twitter following).
Anyhow, I looked into Colbein’s twitter account to see what he was about, and I realized that he’s a singer from the US. I also checked out some of his YouTube videos, and frankly, I was blown away. He’s a very talented singer and songwriter, and I’ve always had this special liking to white guys who can sing.
Here, I look at Brandon Colbein Skeie’s biography and musical career.
