Brandtson United States
Brandtson was an indie rock band that formed in 1996 in Cleveland, Ohio and disbanded in 2008. It was originally a side project for Myk Porter, the vocalist of the hardcore band, Six Feet Deep. Porter got his friend Jared Jolley to play drums in the band. Soon thereafter, Six Feet Deep broke up and Brandtson became a full-time band with the addition of Matt Traxler, also of Six Feet Deep, on guitar and John Sayre on bass. Their first release was on Traxler's indie label, Steadfast Records and was entitled, Letterbox.
