Meet Michael and Brandon, the musical masterminds who started their journey as violinists, only to morph into the epic rock duo, Students Eclipsed. Michael’s jazz-inspired vocals and Brandon’s multi-instrumental wizardry collide to create a unique sound that will leave you spinning like a merry-go-round.
“Falling” is an eclectic collection of textures and influences that takes you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions.

But don’t worry; this isn’t your typical emo sob-fest. “Falling” is a celebration of music’s limitless expression. With Michael’s storytelling lyrics and Brandon’s intricate arrangements, this song is a musical journey that defies conventions.
Michael’s vocal style is reminiscent of the greats—Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennet, Nat King Cole—those guys knew how to tell a story. And Michael follows in their footsteps, infusing his music with the soul of jazz. But he didn’t stop there; bands like The Beatles, Panic! At the Disco, and Fall Out Boy joined the party, adding a dash of rock and pop-punk to the mix.
Then there’s Brandon, the mastermind behind the arrangements. He’s been hooked on music since he was 8, and now, with influences from Breaking Benjamin to Polyphia, he’s serving up a musical feast that’s as diverse as a buffet on Thanksgiving.
Together, they’ve cooked up “Falling” and two other pop-rock bangers. But let’s focus on this gem. The violin and viola parts, courtesy of Michael and Brandon, serve as the heartbeat of the song, driving it forward with unyielding energy. It’s like they’re casting a spell on you, and you can’t help but surrender to the mesmerizing sound.
As the song reaches its desperate conclusion, you’ll find yourself yearning for more. And that’s precisely the magic of Students Eclipsed. They’ve crafted a unique, genre-bending sound that’s equal parts enchanting and mind-blowing.
