"Brian denHertog"

“Brian denHertog has been many things in his life...a teacher, a carver, a traveller and one of my oldest friends. Somehow his music seems to embody many of these different paths. There is something rough, handmade, honest and beautiful at the heart of Brian’s tunes and always, a compassion and a wamth that I find very appealing”
-Stephen Fearing, Juno Award Winning Singer-Songwriter, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings -

"Brian denHertog @ Hugos"

"As always, your soulful sound and original lyrics make me feel happy that our paths have crossed."
- Bonnie Sauder, Hugos Restaurant -

"Brian denHertog's new release, Gypsy Wild and the Open Road"

"Virtuoso performances and interesting arrangements anchoring strong, if quirky and genre-defying, songs".

"The album features 10 originals and an immensely moving cover of Junkhouse's "Burned Out Car". Among the many strong offerings here, "You Carry It Around" is a standout as is the folksy "Home Again". Also check out "Harmony Is Here" and the instrumental "Copper Mountain".

"A fine evening of song"

Saturday night the 17th the rain pounded the roof at St. Monica's as folksinger Brian denHertog took the stage alongside flutist/saxophonist Jill Russell.
Those who braved the elements were treated to a fine evening of songs, stories and instrumentals from this engaging pair. Two hours of compelling songs left the audience cheering for more." - The Westerner, Oct. 2009

     From festivals and house concerts to touring the small towns of Canada’s West Coast, Brian denHertog has been performing his songs for more than thirty years. Along the way he has been a carpenter, high school shop teacher, carver and jeweller. His songs are rooted in the acoustic elements of folk, blues and country. As a traveller and story teller, Brian’s songs traverse physical and spiritual landscapes. His music illuminates the road less traveled and the way back home.
Brian's debut CD "Gypsy Wild and the Open Road" was produced by Stephen Fearing and released in 2001. Featuring a strong cast of Canada's finest roots musicians it garnered significant radio airplay across Canada and the USA. Brian's second CD "Cutting Diamonds out of Dew" was released at the end of 2009 and represents a more intimate, stripped down presentation of the songs. A brand new CD, "Ghost Stories" is scheduled for release at the end of November 2015.
Brian's song "Glory Train" has been included in the National Film Board documentary "Finding Farley" which was released in the Fall of 2009.

 Brian lives in Horseshoe Bay, on the outskirts of Vancouver with his wife, musician Jill Russell.
