Mendeleyev & Friends: Brandon Jenner and Laura Rizzotto w/ special guest Balam Garcia

October 26 9:30 pm PDT

Main Stage

Doors Open: 9:00 pm

Mendeleyev is a baritone Singer/Songwriter/Producer based in NYC. Set to be Ben Harper’s opening act for his fall tour. Appearing on Season 17 of NBC’s The Voice on John Legend’s Team, his low booming voice got all 4 coaches to turn their chairs.  Recently opening for/collaborating with Jackson Browne and Madison Cunningham, he also headlined the 4th of July at The Rose Bowl Stadium, singing for 30,000 people.  Highly influenced by a variety of legends with a vocal combination of Johnny cash and Van Morrison, moving lyrical content of Bob Dylan, and the fingerpicking style of John Mayer, he has a fresh and folky yet funky take on music. Fun and full of energy, Mendeleyev is always taking the next step…

Brandon Jenner

Los Angeles-born singer, songwriter, and producer Brandon Jenner paints a rich picture of the important things—what it means to be a good dad, good husband, good brother, and good son.“Little moments inspire me to write,” he affirms. “I’ve gotten better at whittling my life down to the most important things, which are my family, music, and self-care. I don’t really do anything that doesn’t contribute to strengthening one of those three. Playing music in so many genres satisfies me the most. It’s an outlet for all of my emotions.”

Brandon introduced himself as a solo artist with 2016’s Burning Ground EP led by the title single “Burning Ground.” Amassing tens of millions of streams, he released a string of fan favorite projects such as the “Face The World EP” [2018], “Plan On Feelings EP” [2019], “So Childish EP” [2020], and “Short of Home EP” [2021]. In addition to praise for Short of Home from Artist Waves, California Rocker, and more, American Songwriter proclaimed, “together, these songs reveal the through-line of authenticity in Jenner’s storytelling that makes Short of Home the truest testament to his artistry yet.”

In the end, Brandon welcomes everyone to experience his life with him now.

“If my music helps people feel in any slight way, there’s a purpose for me working hard enough to record it and put it out there,” he leaves off. “I hope it resonates on some level. That’s really the pinnacle for me. My favorite part about making music is when I get to play shows, meet people afterwards, and connect with them. They make me feel good, and I make them feel good, because I’m really appreciative of the love and support. We both leave feeling more inspired and more seen.

Laura Rizzotto
