With more than a decade of musical experience, Brandon Giltz is no stranger to any genre or style.
A native of Virginia, he began his musical journey at age 6, when he began to learn piano, and at the present moment plays and gigs on more than 5 instruments.
His path in flute playing began, as many do, with middle school band. Brandon quickly developed his skills and moved through ensembles, and played his last year of high school as principal flute player in Cox High School's wind ensemble.
He began playing guitar and bass in high school, and a musical career that started in bedroom bands brought him to the venues of Virginia in original and cover bands, across the US on a national tour, and eventually to the streets of New Orleans, where he now works as a session musician and as the bassist of two active bands, in addition to careers as a solo songwriter and a sound tech at Banks Street Bar and The Allways Lounge.
He has played in nearly two dozen ensembles, from small, local symphonies, to 80s tribute bands, to alternative and even experimental jazz groups. In addition, he has published more than a dozen pieces of music in various forms including classical compositions, soundtrack commissions, and records as a solo artist and a bandmate. His taste and style are all-encompassing, from wind band variations to rock anthems, from synthpop to extreme metal.
