Brandon Boyd grew up in Calabasas, California. In 1991 he began singing and writing song lyrics for what would become the multi-platinum selling and internationally recognized rock band, Incubus. Twenty years later the band released their seventh studio album, and continues to tour the globe.
Brandon is also an accomplished visual artist. Finding creative expression at an early age, Brandon often carried sketchbooks and notepads, and though he was never formally trained, over the years he has developed his young habit into an inextricable part of his life. He has also published two books, appeared in group and solo shows, released limited edition prints and aligned his art with various philanthropic causes worldwide and for brands such as TOMS and Hurley. A firm believer in the opportunity to “give back,” Brandon is involved with many organizations and charitable causes, and in 2003 along with his Incubus band mates, founded the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, ‘The Make Yourself Foundation’, which has raised over 1.4 million dollars for various philanthropic causes both locally and globally.
