Popular Producer/Performer/Worship Leader Shared Stage with Nicole C. Mullen, American Idol's Jason Castro and More

Seattle, Wash. (November 18, 2010) - Critically acclaimed worship leader Brandon Bee's buzz continued to build during the recent 2010 Visionary Awards. Bee, who performed a song from his current project, This is the Revolution, shared the stage at the event with a Who's Who of the industry's legends and rising stars including Nicole C. Mullen, American Idol's Jason Castro, Babbie Mason, David Meece, Tim Archer, Randy Stonehill, Bruce Carroll and comedian Michael Joiner. The event, which was hosted by Babbie Mason and David Meece, was recorded for broadcast on the Trinity Broadcasting Network at a future date.

The Christian Music Hall of Fame's Visionary Awards honors fan-nominated Christian artists from all genres of Christian music from Gospel to Metal. Previous Visionary Award winners include Mercy Me, CeCe Winans, The Gaither Vocal Band, Toby Mac and Kirk Franklin. Bee was a 2010 Visionary Award nominee in the Best New Artist Category.
Well known as a producer and a sought-after worship leader at churches and conferences across the country, Brandon Bee's unique brand of pop/rock worship music has earned him a growing legion of fans. His Surrendered EP debuted on iTunes' "New & Noteworthy" section and landed in the Top 20 on the iTunes Christian Albums chart. His debut full-length project, This Is The Revolution, has garnered critical acclaim from media outlets such as iTunes Christian Musician Magazine, CCMMagazine.com and Christianitytoday.com.

"One of the more striking debut efforts in recent memory, Bee firmly establishes the artistic reputation that his previous production work only hinted at with This Is The Revolution," says Christian Musician Magazine.

iTunes states, "Best known as a Christian music producer, Brandon Bee steps out as a singer/songwriter on 2009's thoroughly likable This Is The Revolution...Bee is vivid and convincing."

Bee's behind-the-scenes credits include development work for many of the music industry's top companies, including Geffen Records, Sony BMG Music Entertainment and Warner Music Group. He first came to the attention of the production world under the mentorship of producer Lou Carto (Randy Travis, B.B. King) and Dove Award-nominated Christian artist/producer Morgan Cryar. After moving back to the Northwest from Nashville, Bee began producing bands in Seattle's growing Christian music scene and traveling throughout the U.S. and Canada to produce artists including Amber Pacific, Jaime Jamgochian, Benjiman, Juno Award nominee/Island Award winner Matthew James, Grammy Award nominee/Dove Award winner Stacie Orrico, 2009 Immerse winner Jake Brothers and indie folk-pop rising star Beth Whitney.

Bee most recently produced Circleslide's exciting new CD, Echoes of the Light.
