B-Shel was born Brandon Shelby in West Covina, California. Being introduced to the entertainment industry at an early age, it was quickly discovered B-Shel was destined to be an entertainer. At the young age of seven he began developing his gift of rhythmically speaking by emulating his rap heros Tupac Shakur, Jay-Z, and LL Cool J (just to name a few). Like many great entertainers, mastering only one art is not enough. At the tender age of thirteen, B-Shel began writing lyrics. B-Shel developed a determination to succeed, exercising his admirable work ethic. Hard work, dedication and the willingness to continually learn and progress has helped to develop him into the artist he is today.
After completing three years of college B-Shel realized that his mission in life would remain incomplete if he did not return to his first love, music. His passion for Hip Hop and R & B landed him a job with High Desert Broadcasting, where he was a Disc-Jockey for K-Mix 106.3 and News Talk 1440. Gifted with breathless flow and amazing delivery, it was not long before B-Shel accepted the fact that one mic and a stage was all he was missing to begin fulfilling his destiny.
His professional disposition and charismatic demeanor has permitted him to be the opening acts for many artists, including Ashanti, Destiny’s Child, and Jon B. His confidence and proven skills encouraged greats such as Flo-Rida, Kanye West, Ray J, Pleasure P and a host of others to allow him to be part of their compilation projects. His overabundance of faith allowed him to grace the stage with Jaheim and Case. Being versatile and humble, created opportunities for him to perform at gospel events with artist such as Tonex, Ziel, Angie Stone, Nick Cannon and Marvin Sapp. Performing at Fairs, Concert, in night clubs, or talent showcases, B-Shel delivers every time with a passion that certainly will make him the fans favorite.
