Born in Sasebo, Nagasaki, Japan, Brandon started playing the drums at age 11. Soon after his family moved to Guangzhou, China, he eventually shifted his classical percussion focus to that of jazz, and immediately started gigging around the country.
He is now a student at the Northern Illinois University finishing up his degree in specialized world percussion performance, studying Cuban, Brazilian, Middle Eastern, Indian, Thai percussion, as well as drumset and jazz. He has also recently added handpan to his repertoire and is writing new compositions to add to the mix.
He is currently active in performing in the Chicago area, and has recently appeared in Japan, Taiwan, the United States, and across China.
Guitarist Derek Duleba performs and teaches in the Chicagoland area. He is an active member of the Chicago Jazz Community, performing at many venues including Chicago Symphony Center, Jay Pritzker Pavilion, The Jazz Showcase, and Fitzgerald’s Jazz Club.
Mentored by Chicago jazz greats Kelly Sill, Ron Dewar, Art Davis, and Andy Brown, Derek is a former student of renowned guitar virtuoso Fareed Haque. While earning a Bachelor's degree in Jazz Studies from Northern Illinois University (summa cum laude, May of 2018), he also completed an undergraduate certificate in Philosophy of Education studying eastern philosophy and its integration with education.
