About Brandon Boyd:
Born February 15, 1976, Brandon Boyd grew up in Calabasas, California. In 1991 he began singing and writing song lyrics with high school friends in what would become the Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum selling and internationally recognized rock band, Incubus.
In April of 2017 the band released their eighth studio album, 8 and will tour extensively throughout the current year.
Though best known as a musician, Brandon is an avid and lifelong visual artist for whom art has played an
increasingly prominent role.
He is the author of three books combining his artwork, photography and creative writing: White Fluffy Clouds (2003), From the Murks of the Sultry Abyss (2007), and So The Echo (2013).
Brandon has held book signings, art talks and solo and group exhibits extensively throughout the U.S. and internationally in cities such as London, Paris, Amsterdam, Rome, Zurich and exhibited at Art Basel Miami and other esteemed art fairs several times.

I loved this quote of his from an interview by Baha Danesh 12-01-2017 Los Angeles, CA as I so identified with his comments on every level.
I choose art because our culture of “results” has been kind of destructive to me, and to find something that allows for a spontaneous process to emerge and to thrive feels more like walking with the wind. I’ve been blessed with some wonderful results and fruits of deeper process but the process itself within art has been an incredible reward. Like building a house and having the time of your life hammering away and painting walls, then having the fact that you now have a place to live be merely an icing on an already delicious cake.
