About My Business:

 

Miss Brandi Russell is not a stranger to the stage, singing her way out of a Florida ghetto into musical theater and eventually finding her way as a popstar in Europe. A member of the American Actors’ Equity Association, Ms. Russell has performed leading roles in many musical theater productions, including Little Shop of Horrors (Audrey), Anything Goes (Reno Sweeney), Kiss Me Kate (Lois Lane), Rent (Maureen), the World Premiere of Meat Street the Musical (Flo Manfred), and Grease! (Frenchy – together with Joey Fatone of NSync and Alfonso Ribero from Fresh Prince of Belair), and starred in the Vagina Monologues. She has appeared in Disney World’s Tarzan Rocks! show and in their a cappella pop group American Vybe, in the Beetlejuice Rock and Roll Revue at Universal Studios and at Universal Japan, and in shows on the Holland America Line. After moving to The Netherlands in 2005, Ms. Russell started her own entertainment production company, CastMie Producties, where she writes, casts, and produces unique musical shows and artists for events and theaters, and has created and sold eight shows. In 2008, Ms. Russell won the Dutch televised talent contest Popstars, catapulting her career in a new direction. She landed a position in a new pop group, RED!, whose first single reached #1 on the hit charts in The Netherlands. The group, aiming at a younger audience, had thousands of fans, but Ms. Russell wanted to reach out to a bigger audience with a different style of music and a new image. Her first solo single, Broken Doll, was a dance-pop hit that stayed in the top 100 of the Dutch charts for two months. Miss Brandi Russell’s Youtube videos have been seen more than half a million times. She was seen as openings act for Night to Remember 2010, opening for artists such as: Rick Astley, T’Pau, Nik Kershaw, Paul Young, and Marc Almond. She has performed for events such as the Tour du France, the Ride for the Roses, Lego World, Miss Nederland finale, and various gay and equality events. Miss Russell also co- produced and starred in the first live singing and dancing show for Walibi World Fright Nights, and is writing her own pop concert/burlesque inspired cabaret documenting the life of poor America fighting to follow their dreams and celebrating true indivudality with plans to tour Dutch theaters in 2012/2013 (in cooperation with Image Entertainment and Ruud de Graaf Producties). She is currently writing and working on her first solo album, to be internationally released in 2011, with reputable producers and writers such as Emil Hellman- one of the co founders of the famous Cherion studios in Stockholm, Sweden and producer from artists such as Michael Jackson, Kylie Minogue, Ace of Base, George Michael, and Agnes Carlsson, Peter Hägerås- producer for artsits such as Taylor Dayne with the hit “Facing a Miracle” for the Gay Olympics 2010, Eric van Tijn- jury from Dutch Idols and X-Factor, and Jochem Fluistma- who have together produced over 40 number one hits, Bruce R.F. Smith- who has written for artists all over the world, with number one hits ranging from Europe to Japan, Yannic Fonderie, 2 – time Grammy award winner Alan Glass, and Bruce Gaitsch- writer of Madonna’s hit single “La Isla Bonita”. “An inspirational role model for aspiring performers in any genre, her unique perspective arising from her personal journey as a poor child of the ghetto who became a working actor, then a musical theater star and now a pop star, grounds her positive energy and contagious work ethic.” – Joan Travis, Musical Theater Bavaria “Brandi is simpy one of the best singers and entertainers in The Netherlands.” – Frederic Tonnen, Event Coordinator “When you are looking for a dedicated artist, don’t look any futher, you’ve just found her! Working with Brandi will give you the same experience as I had before: creative, top quality and dedicated to every detail in the show. Thanks again Brandi for your great shows at LEGOWORLD 2010.” -Berry van Engelen, ZIVA Events
