His impressive array of genres includes Classical, Electronic, Ambient, Dramatic, Horror, and various guitar-oriented themes.
Robert Brannan began playing the guitar at the age of fourteen (in 1992) and has studied music extensively since then, both independently and as a music student at the Florida State University.

Bach, Richard Wagner, Nikita Koshkin, Django Reinhardt, Isaac Albeniz, and Pink Floyd.
This work is mischievously dark, yet whimsical at the same time. Reminiscent of Danny Elfman's work with Tim Burton. Would work well with light-hearted Halloween projects or fantasy. Instrumental, Soundalikes, Danny Elfman
This dark waltz evokes a sense of playful mischief that climaxes with a violent rasgueado surprise in the bridge. Very close in style to the manouche (gypsy) music of Django Reinhardt (with a bit of Danny Elfman added) Would be well suited for light hearted, cartoonish horror, or mischievous action. Instrumental, Soundalikes, Django Reinhardt
Instrumental "Rat Pack" type sound reminiscent of the Olive Garden music selection. Would work well in a restaurant commercial or any project needing something akin to the sound that accompanied "Old Blue Eyes" and friends. Instrumental, Soundalikes, Frank Sinatra
Cinematic piece that builds into an intensely rhythmic and musical climax. Chanting females sing an ethereal, haunting vocal line around a relentless pulsing crescendo. Would be terrific in a climactic good vs evil standoff or chase scene (adventure, sci fi, or horror film), Female Vocals, Soundalikes, Indiana Jones
