Brandon Mesén is the founder of Mesen Around, who started his vision in music while climbing barefoot on trees and singing in tune with birds. Looking into the vast sky, with birds flying above him, Brandon had his first discovery on the sound of music.
Music fueled Brandon’s childhood, which began his journey for fun and messing around. As a young kid, he began humming to melodies, tapping desks for rhythm. At the age of 6, he received from mom his first miniature drum, which started his rhythm skills. At the age of 15, a friend from school with whom no one would hang out with gave him a small black ukulele. He then began writing songs and singing on the premise of perfecting his craft. On his 16th birthday, he received his first acoustic guitar as a present from his mom, which he still used to play up to this day.
Brandon started Mesen Around with his first show in the streets barefoot next to a hookah bar. He made $100 in 3 hours and decided to make music as a career. With passion and willpower, he contacted small venues and coffee shops for gigs. As Mesen Around ran five years straight doing shows and records, everything went bigger and better for Brandon. For the record, he played in 500 shows and 100 radio stations worldwide, and he continues his message of peace, love, and justice for all.
With an upcoming debut album “Feels Good To Be A Weird Kid,” ready to be launched everywhere this summer, Brandon is saying that it feels good to be weird and free. A reflection of his life, his mission is to empower everyone to be themselves, spreading love, peace, and justice to all. As Brandon puts it, I was a weird kid, and I’m still a weird kid, and nothing is going to change who I am and what I am. His upcoming debut album is not solely for the love of music but for everyone who is seeking to find themselves.
Mesen Around is for everyone who wants justice in the world—creating an outlet to attain self-identity and self-confidence. He has seen how everyone tends to change their self-identity to avoid feeling indifferent among their peers. Taking away one’s self-identity is forgetting who they are and where they came from. You become the person who still feels lost and alone in a crowd of friends. Brandon believes that no one deserves to feel that way and encourages everyone to find and take care of their self-identity.
As everyone is becoming conscious about how they look, how they interact, and compare themselves with others. Brandon wants to make a difference by allowing everyone through his music, express how they feel and be confident about who they are. He will continue to spread his message of peace, love, and justice worldwide.
Aside from making music, he is in the process of writing a book, a dedication to all the weird kids to keep and stay being themselves.
