What is Brandon Boyd's Net Worth?

Brandon Boyd is an American musician, author, and visual artist who has a net worth of $20 million. Brandon Boyd is best known as the lead vocalist of the American rock band Incubus.

Since the band's formation in the early 1990s, Boyd's distinctive voice and dynamic stage presence have played a pivotal role in Incubus's success. The band gained mainstream recognition with the release of their album "Make Yourself" in 1999, which included hits like "Drive" and "Pardon Me." Incubus continued to build on their success with subsequent albums such as "Morning View" and "A Crow Left of the Murder," solidifying their place in the alternative rock scene.

Beyond his work with Incubus, Boyd has pursued solo musical projects and collaborations that showcase his versatility as an artist. He has also delved into visual arts, publishing books that feature his artwork, poetry, and personal musings. His commitment to environmental and humanitarian causes, often reflected in his music and public appearances, highlights Boyd's multifaceted career and influence beyond the music industry.

Early Life

Boyd was born on February 15, 1976, in Van Nuys, California, to parents Priscilla Wiseman and Charles Boyd. Due to his parents' involvement with the entertainment industry, Boyd was exposed to music from a young age and has noted that his parents were a huge inspiration in his choice to pursue a career in music. Boyd has a younger brother, Jason Boyd, who also pursued music, becoming the leader singer of the band Audiovent.

Boyd attended Calabasas High School, from where he graduated in 1994, before attending Moorpark College for two years. He ultimately decided to leave college in order to pursue his music career.

Boyd was one of the founding members of Incubus, along with Mike Einziger, Alex Katunich, and José Pasillas. The group originally formed the band in 1991 while all the boys were still in high school and did not start going by the name Incubus until they started playing in shows.

In 1996, Gavin Koppell was added to the band, and they soon released their debut album, "Fungus Amongus," on their own label. Sony then signed the band a year later and helped them release the 1997 EP "Enjoy Incubus," which they were able to present while touring with the band Korn throughout Europe.

In 1997, Incubus released their second album, "S.C.I.E.N.C.E.," and also decided to replace Koppell with Chris Kilmore, who was a better fit for the band's dynamic. The band toured heavily over the next year, playing in festivals and joining System of a Down and Ultraspank on tour. However, Incubus remained largely out of the mainstream until they experienced commercial success with subsequent albums "Make Yourself" and "Morning View."

Boyd attracted a lot of attention from female fans, even landing a spot on the Teen People list of "Hottest Guys in Music" in the early 2000s. Boyd's popularity and Incubus's success continued with the release of the 2004 album "A Crow Left of the Murder," which received a Grammy nomination. They followed up with another album, "Light Grenades," in 2006, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 charts.

Incubus took a break from making music between 2009 and 2010, releasing only a greatest hits album, "Monuments and Melodies," during this period. In July of 2011, the band's seventh album, "If Not Now, When?" was released, followed by an eighteen-month world tour. The band continued regularly making music throughout the 2010s but stated that they no longer felt bound to release music only in the form of full albums, as they released several EPs and single songs during this time.

Solo Career

While Incubus was on hiatus in 2010, Boyd began working on solo music, releasing his first solo album, "The Wild Trapeze," in July. Boyd continued working on his own music while remaining in Incubus, announcing a second album in 2013. "Sons of the Sea" was released in September of that year. In 2020, he announced plans to release another album on his own, this time focusing on covers of other songs rather than original music.

Other Pursuits

While mainly known for his musical ability, Boyd also developed a number of other artistic pursuits. He had a fondness for drawing since his youth but developed the hobby more seriously in his 20s when he began painting as well. In 2008, his first solo art show opened in Los Angeles. Often using his painting as a means of environmental activism, he painted a large mural at the Hurley Space Gallery in 2011 that was focused on showcasing the harmful effects of single-use plastics on the oceans.

In 2020, Boyd debuted a virtual exhibit online entitled "Impossible Knots," which was originally scheduled to debut in-person at the Samuel Lynne Galleries in Dallas. Additionally, Boyd has published three books, "White Fluffy Clouds," "The Murks of the Sultry Abyss," and "So The Echo." All of the books feature Boyd's personal illustrations, lyrics, and other artistic writings.

Personal Life

Boyd has dated a number of celebrities over the last few decades, though he remains unmarried. In 1999, he was linked to actress Jo Bourne-Taylor. He later dated supermodel Carolyn Murphy from 2002 to 2006. The couple lived together with Murphy's daughter from a previous relationship but ultimately split after a few years together. In 2008, he began dating actress Baelyn Neff. The pair lived together and remained in a relationship for over ten years before deciding to part ways.

Since then, Boyd has been linked to actress Sarah Hay after posting a watercolor he had painted of her on his Instagram account. Hay later posted photos that Boyd had taken of her to her own account.

Real Estate

Brandon's primary residence for many years has been Los Angeles, where he owns at least two properties. In 2012, he purchased a house on a 13,000-square-foot lot in Santa Monica for $3.5 million.

. Around the same time, he listed his Venice home, which features a custom-built studio, for $2.72 million. He purchased the Venice home in 2012 for exactly the same as his selling price.

In 2016, he spent $2.5 million to buy a 3,500-square-foot home on 2.7 acres in the nearby hilly area of Topanga. This home also featured an 800-square-foot yurt, which he turned into a studio/office/guesthouse and storage facility for a large collection of crystals.
