Brandon & Leah is an American based indie pop group made up of husband and wife team Brandon and Leah Jenner.

Brandon and Leah have known each other since they were in middle school and began playing music together in high school. They were married on May 31, 2012 in Hawaii outside the St. Regis Princeville Resort.[1][2][3]

Their sound has been described as indie pop, hip-hop based reggae, and electro-pop-soul. They draw heavy influence from soul, reggae, pop, and hip-hop.[4][5][6]

The group met popularity when their single, "Showstopper" was used as the theme song for Kourtney and Kim Take Miami on E! Entertainment.[7][8] Initially Brandon and Leah were signed to Warner Bros. Records, but they soon opted to release their music on their own.[9]

Along with Tony Berg, they produced their debut EP, Cronies, which was released on April 9, 2013.[8] It has reached #82 on the Billboard 200, #16 on the Billboard Independent Albums Chart, and #24 on the Billboard Digital Albums chart.[4][5][10] They released their second EP, Together, on October 14, 2014.[11]
