Malibu, CA is probably more known for its penchant for reality shows, celebs and people who are famous for simply being famous. It’s also known for it waves, surf, beach life and most of all, the nightlife. Or you can be Brandon Jenner (the lesser known sibling of the Jenner/Kardashian clan and fellow native Leah Felder (the daughter of original Eagles lead guitarist Don Felder). Outside of a stint on a short-lived reality show, Brandon along with Felder have pretty much shunned the alluring nightlife of Malibu for penning and making music on the beaches and bonfires growing up. "Brandon and I have known each other since we were kids," says Leah. "We never went to clubs. We just went to the beach to have fun, and that’s what we wanted our music to reflect: the soulfulness of the outdoors."
In fact Brandon Jenner and Leah Felder have been doing the whole music thing since their school days in the beachfront town, honing their eventual acoustic pop style and tailoring it to the breezy and sunny disposition of Malibu with Brandon bringing an upbeat acoustic guitar and arresting ukelele strumming alongside the sun and honey-soaked vocals of Leah.
We’ll just have to let YOU, the music fan decide if the slowly emerging duo has staying power. We here at The Spotlight think they might, otherwise why would we???
