Biography

Wildstone Audio recording artist Brian Curran represents the best of a new generation of guitarists/songwriters who carry blues/roots music to new and original heights.

With two Wildstone Audio CD releases – “Straight Up Blues” (2001) and “Made Myself Lonesome” (2003) already generating local and national attention, Brian is currently working on his third release.

From inspired arrangements of classic songs to unique original compositions, Brian has proven himself to be honest and true to the roots of country/blues. But Brian is not content to limit his abilities to generate new music as he crosses genres with signer/songwriter, folk styles, and poetic instrumentals.

Brian Curran live is an energetic, humorous, and accomplished mix of pure musicianship, storytelling and plain old FUN! Mixing equal amounts of originals and covers, Brian runs the gamut of acoustic styles with plenty of true life stories to round out the show.

Wildstone Audio is proud to announce that Brian was nominated best blues player in the 2003 St. Louis Riverfront Times. He has opened shows for Koko Taylor, Little Feat, Dave Mackenzie, and Catfish Keith to name a few.
