The Story of
Brandenburg 4 was created in 2012 by front woman Julie Brandenburg on keys and lead vocals, Emily Zimmer on guitars and backing vocals, Michael LaPlant on Drums, and David Salentine on Bass. The progressive sound is complex yet complimentary and catchy. The songs are about life, struggle, and love. They have a way of reaching into your heart and peering into your soul.
Julie Brandenburg is a composer, singer, songwriter and pianist. She has written music for films and chamber ensembles as well as quirky solo songs and heavy progressive rock band music. Julie's previous bands have enjoyed regional success and national sponsorship by GHS Strings, Zildjian Cymbals and others. She has a masters degree in Music Theory, Technology, and Composition from the University of Wisconsin and teaches voice, piano, song writing and composition as an adjunct professor in the Milwaukee area.
Emily Zimmer, Michael LaPlant, and David Salentine are also accomplished musicians who have been in various musical projects. Individually, they bring years of experience from touring the US as well as parts of Europe. Together with Julie, as Brandenburg 4, they complete the sweet melodic, yet complex, music that is heartfelt and personal. Give a listen and I'm sure you will agree that the songs reflect the talent of the musicians and the skill of the song writing. This combination creates a music that is unlike anything out there right now.
