In addition to solo guitar playing, Brandon excels at improvisation. He played with the Asheville, NC-based, world-fusion group Trade Routes for almost a decade. The group was formed by Nathan and Brandon Dyke, and featured two amazing bass players, Miko Amore and Robert Nance. In 2013, Brandon went back to his roots as a singer-songwriter and his song, Hindsight, was part of a world-wide progressive rock compilation released by Prog Sphere. In 2015, he started his Solo Rush Tribute Project and played his first show in New Jersey. Brandon went on to play at Rush Camp, an annual music festival for Rush fans held in the Pocono Mountains of PA. Rush Camp was created by the charity, Overtime Angels. In 2018, Brandon was invited to play in Port Dalhousie alongside Poet Danny Peart. He and Danny have continued to collaborate with video projects the last few years. Brandon teaches guitar locally at the Mauldin Cultural Center in Mauldin, SC. He enjoys seeing his students learn and grow, and customizes lessons to the style and goals of each student.
