Brandi Christensen

Born into a musical family in Blair, NE, Brandi Christensen was 'made' for music. Never a question. Never a doubt. Full-throttle, all the way.
Growing up, Brandi spent her youth on the stages of the midwestern music festival scene. Singing, playing guitar and competing, she was never a stranger to the music. Then in 1997, at the age of 15, she discovered true love in the form of a battered, old bass guitar, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Brandi was able to cut her teeth at the festivals and small bars in her area, learning anything from anyone willing to take the time to show her. At 18 she began working full-time as the house bassist  at a small music venue in Council Bluffs, IA. In 2000 she joined forces with a local band of young talent and began on a journey of constant touring and travel, leaving a trail country wide over the last decade. With the better part of a dozen albums recorded under her belt, part of which she has co-written, Brandi Christensen is the real deal.
After a move to Nashville a few years back, she has had a chance to finely hone her skills, playing with some of the most phenomenal musicians and talent out there. One thing is for certain, there is no stopping this force of nature on stage, or off. Brandi Christensen is climbing straight to the top, high-heeled and victory bound.  She was hired within 5 minutes of filling in with Brandon Giles in the summer of 2014 and in a cornerstone of the "Tricky Two."
