Phillip “Brail” Watson is a classically trained vocalist, cellist, songwriter, rapper, clinician, producer and Berklee College of Music graduate from Topeka, Kansas. Throwing up the ~One~ at his shows (a symbol meaning one spirit, one God, one voice), Brail is known for his dynamic stage presence, studio professionalism and hunger for social change.
After obtaining his Bachelor’s in classical music, Brail headed to Spain for a year to gain his Master’s in music and grow his fan base in Europe. Working with acclaimed engineers and artists such as Patrice Rushen, Brail honed both his studio and live performance skill sets. While in Spain, he spent his time charting out his music for other musicians and assembling groups of the ﬁnest musicians. With his new network of associates, Brail performed for thousands of new fans from Berklee stages, to private parties, to community block parties.
Brail has now returned to the United States, and has been using his new network of musicians to affect audiences, both old and new. He intends to continue living by his mantra to “change the world through music,” by both starting outreach programs in his hometown of Topeka and traveling abroad as a performer, clinician and speaker.
