  • Brandon Padier and Black Gold is an americana/country singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist hailing from San Antonio, Texas. For Brandon, the song always comes first. Luckily, his deep knowledge and love of the great songwriters of the 20th century have helped him hone his craft and create a sound that is comfortably reminiscent, yet completely original.
