Brandon Flowers Biography
Brandon Flowers whose full name is Brandon Richard Flowers, is an American singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. He is best known as the lead singer, keyboardist and occasional bass guitarist of the Las Vegas-based rock band The Killers. He was born on June 21, 1981 in Henderson, Nevada, to Jean Yvonne and Terry Austin Flowers.
Flowers is the youngest of six children. His older siblings are his brother Shane and four sisters April, Shelly, Amy, and Stephanie. His family lived in Henderson until Flowers was eight, when they moved to Payson, Utah, for two years before moving to Nephi, Utah, at which time he was in the sixth grade. Flowers lived in Nephi until his junior year at Juab High School. He moved to Las Vegas to live with his aunt and graduated from Chaparral High School in 1999.
In late 2001, Flowers responded to an ad that Dave Keuning had placed in the Las Vegas Weekly, whereupon they became The Killers. After several short-lived bassists and drummers, Flowers and Keuning were joined by bassist Mark Stoermer and drummer Ronnie Vannucci, and the line-up became official in August 2002. On July 4, 2010, The Killers headlined the “Salute to the Military” USO Concert at the White House. They performed “God Bless America” and favorites from their catalogue. On June 22, 2013, the Killers headlined the 90,000 capacity Wembley Stadium, their biggest solo show to date.
Canadian-American singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright wrote a song about Flowers called “Tulsa” for his fifth album Release the Stars. Wainwright has stated in numerous interviews that it was inspired by their first meeting at a bar in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In 2015, Flowers also featured on the closing track of New Order’s Music Complete.

Brandon Flowers Quotes
- In a sense, all Americans are battle-born. Our ancestors came here for something better.
- When I was younger, I was chubby. It gave me a terrible sense of self-image, and I guess I carry that around with me still.
- I understand what songs like ‘Mr Brightside’ mean to people. They will last forever.
- I’ve definitely got a lot more cautious about my lyrics – I feel I want to be a positive force in the world, and I want to uplift people. That’s something that comes with age.
- I romanticize. I live with the ghosts of Elvis and Frank Sinatra. It seems so glamorous. They were American men who don’t exist anymore. But there are ugly things about them, too.
- I believe in God. It’s a big part of my life. You can bring it up and talk about it without being ‘Christian Rocker.’
- I think people become reliant on coffee. And that can’t necessarily be a good thing.
- Bands that say they don’t care about how their records sell are liars.
- I’m raising my family in The Church, and I’m proud of that.
- I’ve struggled with an identity sometimes; I don’t know what exactly I am. I love so many types of music, and I don’t want to commit to going down one road.
- Basic religion is the reason we have morals.
- My dad is a big dreamer, so I got that from him. Golf was my main thing when I was a teenager, and that’s what I wanted to do.
- As soon as you say ‘Bunnymen,’ I see a trench coat.
- Crossfire’s done very well. I knew it was a great song, but I didn’t know it would be so big.

The Killers’ Brandon Flowers Shares How Mormonism Influences His Rock Music
Updated:Jan. 02, 2018
On December 27, Nevada Public Radio, an NPR station, interviewed Las Vegas native and frontman for the Killers Brandon Flowers.
During the interview, Flowers shared some interesting insights into his LDS faith, as well as how he balances his career in the rock industry with his religion and family.
When asked how his faith exists in relation to his music, Flowers responded, “I don’t think my LDS faith can exist in a separate box. Not if I’m following it faithfully, anyway. In the early days of the band, there was a real internal struggle and a lot of identity-searching. I wanted to be authentic; and being a good Mormon boy had never been affiliated with rock ‘n’ roll on that large of a scale before. It took some trial and error, but I’m starting to inhabit a place that feels like mine.”
About his family, which includes three boys who are 10, 8, and 6, Flowers shared, “It is hard to have a successful family and a successful music career at the same time. But I’m one of the extremely lucky ones. The success of the band has allowed me to bring the family out as much as we can. Or for me to be able to fly to them.”
Flowers is often vocal about his LDS faith and was featured in an “I’m a Mormon” video for the Church. In 2012, Flowers defended Mormonism after famous atheist Richard Dawkins attacked his faith on a Norwegian TV show. Last summer, Flowers told Rolling Stone some of the misconceptions Mormons face. “Mormonism is still pretty misunderstood,” Flowers said. “There’s this kind of weird mystery around it. With Christianity, you have 2,000 years of separation from when the events took place and these supposed miracles. We don’t have that much separation from Joseph Smith in the 1800s and the other events that we believe took place, so it’s a lot easier to home in on it. People that knew Moses didn’t keep journals, but we actually have that information.”
