Brandon “Squeeze” Smith has had his hand on the pulse of Metro Detroit talent for about a decade and a half. This is his 15th year as the Owner/Operator of Star Factory- an artist development hub & recording studio. The company name is an accurate depiction of what Brandon has been able to accomplish. As a result of his proprietary training methods, Squeeze has helped propel talents to powerhouse platforms such as Def Jam, Universal Republic, Love & HipHop, X Factor and more.
His ability to transform artists into marketable commodities in the entertainment marketplace has also led him to become the Program Director for Adidas Sound Labs, where he writes curriculums for high schools to create minimusic industries within each school.
Brandon’s most recent power move is becoming a partner with Distortion Management. This entity will serve as virtual management company that consults artists all over the country on their artist development, branding, marketing and promotional campaigns. Squeeze is always working diligently on innovative ways to educate, train and produce the next star. He believes many are gifted with raw talents, they just don’t know the most effective ways to use what’s already been gifted to them by God. This is what led him to create Thee Ultimate Artist Development Pack, which is a digital course of all his proprietary artist development training methods wrapped into one amazing experience that includes Vocal Training, Performance Coaching, Songwriting, Branding, Content, and more.
“After you meet with your development coach, the real development happens on repeat in your home. Now, artists all over the country will have the luxury of developing themselves at a high level right in the comfort of their own homes.”
