A dynamic young man from Florida with an unusual stage name and powerful, cutting edge vocals caught the attention of several knowledgeable fans and the music world in 2004 and 2005, with his debut CD, the SoBe Entertainment/Warner Brothers Records release, "Ghetto Revelations." This energetic 20 yr old writer, musician, arranger, producer, rapper and singer is truly "Mr. Versatility."

Urban Mystic, born Brandon Williams in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 1984, and the son of a minister, has made a lasting musical impression in a relatively short period of time. He's been heralded not only by his fans, but also by respected publications such as JET Magazine, USA Today, the Dallas Morning News and Billboard, all of whom tout him as a shining star on the horizon. AOL describes him as "A guy who is street without forsaking his soul to the streets."

Urban Mystic's memorable smash hit single, the KayGee-produced "Where Were You?" quickly became a popular fixture at urban radio, where it is still a recurrent tune. The video which accompanied the song enjoyed its own popularity at BET and MTV Jams, as well as at hundreds of video outlets across the country, assisting in establishing Urban Mystic as a vocalist to be reckoned with. His selection as the 2004 Miami Music Award's "Best New Artist" was early proof of the bright future to come for the youthful crooner.

Next year, 2006 will unveil the second chapter in the success of Urban Mystic, with the release of his sophomore CD, "Ghetto Revelations: II." The new album leads off with the single "Bounce Wit Me," a street banger produced by Scott Storch, which features Urban Mystic's label mate, Miami based rapper, Stack$. The CD also contains the hit song "It's You," which again pairs Urban Mystic with hit making producer KayGee. The tune caught the attention of "The People's Champ," Paul Wall, who quickly reached out to spit on the track. Another rapper to throw down on the Urban Mystic musical train is Trick Daddy, who contributes to the song "Let's Make A Change." This tune reminds listeners about the state of the world today and about the incomparable contributions of Rosa Parks and Dr. King; but, more specifically, it tells us why we all need to make a positive change in the world today. Finally, the Scott Storch gut wrenching produced ballads "I Refuse" and "Your Portrait" take one on a musical ride down lovers' memory lane.

Urban Mystic's talents reach beyond his raspy, soulful, Southern-style vocals. He co-wrote several songs on this second album and he utilizes his distinctive rap/sing delivery to his full advantage. He notes, "now that I've been introduced on the music scene, I'm looking forward to showing my fans the several sides of me, and giving all of them more to appreciate about me. With part two of my `Ghetto Revelations' musical journey recorded on this album, they will hear R&B, they will hear raw soul, they will get club bangers, and they will experience the real street side of me."

Those who have witnessed Urban Mystic's live show can attest to his charismatic, soulful flow, especially when he is accompanied by his eight-piece band. The five musicians and three back-up singers were selected, choreographed and rehearsed by renowned R&B music legend -- and fellow Floridian--Betty Wright. Urban Mystic's unforgettable performances, opening for songstress Angie Stone, blew audiences away night after night.

Simply put, Urban Mystic is "the truth" the most distinctive new voice in urban music today meshing Southern flavor with raw, urban, hip-hop and soul. Urban Mystic is "Mr. Versatility."

In the beginning, Urban Mystic was compared to other vocalists, such as K-Ci Hailey, Jaheim and Anthony Hamilton. With his new CD, "Ghetto Revelations: II," the comparisons will quickly fade away, as this album takes his profile to the next level and separates him as a stand-alo
