All the world is a stage, And all the men and women are merely players.– William Shakespeare
David Lei Brandt, a Los Angeles native, knew at an early age the entrances he wanted to make on the world. HIs dream was to be a versatile entertainer, encompassing all facets of the industry: singer/song writer, music producer, actor, and dancer. He has been relentlessly pursuing this dream, knowing his purpose in life is to bring joy and inspiration.
Spending years in his father’s theatre, he was able to hone his talents and business skills. This gave him the unique ability to understand the complexities of being both an artist and a business manager. As a teenager, he started his professional career, filming national commercials, starring in equity theatre, and working with the Disney Channel.
He pursued his singing in 2007 as the lead singer with Varsity Fanclub, signing a record contract with Capital Records. With the success of the band’s first single, Future Love, written by Ryan Tedder, he toured and performed with such acts as Rihanna, Jordan Sparks, Pussy Cat Dolls, Jesse McCartney, and Katy Perry. Musically, David learned a lot about song writing and musical production from hit producers RedOne, Ryan Tedder, The Underdogs, Sam Waters, and Clark Kelley.
David made his professional dance debut for Lady Gaga at the 2010 Video Music Awards. He left Varsity FanClub when he had the phenomenal opportunity to be a full-time dancer for Lady Gaga, joining her for two of her world tours: The Born This Way Ball and ArtRave: The Artpop Ball. He has also been featured in her music videos and tv performances.
Being extremely grateful for the opportunity to sing with Lady Gaga on ArtRave: The Artpop Ball tour, David is back in LA working on his own music and pursuing his solo career. He is the complete package: writing, producing, engineering, and singing. David also creates for other artists as well. You can hear his work from these artists: BC Jean, The Nuckleheads, Zack Zilla, and Todd Austin.
We all have a purpose in this life. Dare to live your dream. Put into this world what you expect to receive. If you have faith and be true to yourself, you will not only find what you’re looking for, but you will see that you are creating a better world for you and those around you. The world is a stage…. We have our entrances and exits. How do you wish to leave it?
