My name is Brandon Bizior. I am a 15 yr old singer, songwriter, musician & performer. I just recently appeared on the
Canadian hit TV show YTV's "The Next Star" , in which I had the good fortune to be selected as one of
6 finalists from 4,000 kids 15 & under that auditioned across Canada. The show allowed me the opportunity to gain
national exposure, co-write and produce a song , 'Better Off Anyway', with Ron Lapata of Jack Soul, appear in my
very first music video and perform on the shows live finale in front of 2,500 screaming fans.
At the age of 8 I started taking vocal lessons with Ray Lyell of Rayne Records. It was here that I discovered my love for
music and performing. I then knew what I wanted to do the rest of my life. Two months later I performed on stage
for the first time. At the age of 9 I realized that being a singer was not enough, I needed to develop as a musician
as well, so I took guitar lessons. I began volunteering my time along with my sister and a local group of talented singers
known as 'Sentimental Journey', performing at nursing homes all across southern Ontario. Our ages ranged from 10
to 80 years old. I appeared each night wearing an Elvis costume and performed my own renditions of his hit songs.

You take the lead singer/guitar player from the band
Tone Deaf, give him a microphone, an acoustic guitar
and a harmonica or five, and you have Mono Tone. Cleaver
name, eh? So, let's just assume for the sake of argument
this guy, Mark, has a clue and can sing and play guitar.
Fairly safe bet there. So, what sets him apart from
everyone else? To start with, he will play almost
anything on an acoustic guitar. I mean, from Van Morrison
to Van Halen, nothing is sacred. Add to that a large
repertoire of songs, an "If I can hum it, I can
play it" attitude, and a sense of humour to boot,
you get Mono Tone.

and in bands. He is considerably older than that

patios to large parties, Mono Tone can rise to any
occasion. Pull up a pint and join in!
Woods loves to perform, which is evident each and
every time he sets foot on stage. He caters to his
audience, accepting requests for favourite cover tunes,
and performs his own material which is known to be
very serious, thought provoking sometimes sad to the
absolutely meaningless, inarticulate and uncultured,
but always meant to be fun.

and Alberta Bound" have become crowd favorites. Their
recent European live album "Gone So Long" has become
a must for all Good Brothers fans.
