Ross S. Brandes

Head of Fair Division

After graduating from Chapman University in 2011 with a degree in Public Relations and Advertising, Ross had a hard choice: go to law school or do what he grew up in and join his father Joel Brandes at Far Out Records. Needless to say, 2 weeks later he was on a bus with War and the Family Stone going across the country tour managing. After that, he was hooked!

Since then, he has spent 12 years in the music business, 7 of which were spent running Fairs Festivals, and Casinos at his former agency. In October of 2021, he took the exciting opportunity to join DADP and has developed strong partnerships with acts such as Nelly, Flo Rida, T.I., The Sugar Hill Gang, Ja Rule, Ashanti, and many more as well as running point on DADPs urban roster. 

His passions outside of work include fishing, F45, his 2 poodles, cooking, and of course spending time with his beautiful wife/coworker Karen Brandes.
