Bio

Brian Elkington has lived in Sydney for the past 17 years. He was born in northern Minnesota USA and spent his childhood among the lakes and woods in the country near the Canadian border.

“The songs have a uniform lyrical depth and heartfelt honesty that show his upheaval to these shores is our gain and America’s loss” – Keith Glass, CapNews

Brian started playing guitar at age 17, and began playing publicly to fund his way through three university degrees. He lived in New York’s Greenwich Village for a while and played world famous venues such as Folk City and The Other End. During his college days he teamed up with friend and fellow musician, Daniel Mohs. The duo became “Elkington Mohs” and spent 10 years travelling around the United States playing music including a large number of Brian’s original songs.

Brian eventually decided to move to Nashville, where he wrote songs professionally and gained valuable experience in the craft of songwritng. He had several songs published and recorded during his three and half years in “Music City”. He also performed his songs at the famous Blue Bird Café in Nashville.

‘A Mark in Time” - the debut album of singer/songwriter Brian Elkington, is a refreshing example of the best of the acoustic singer-songwriter genre.

In Australia, ‘A Mark In Time’ has been receiving a lot of attention from the likes of Alan Jones (2GB) and Bob Rogers (2CH), with the album being featured on both shows to rave reviews. The album is being played on stations across the country, while overseas, is being featured on radio in France, Italy, Belgium, Ireland, UK, Austria, Holland, New Zealand and the United States.

“I want to tell people about your album – because the songs are so poignant” - Bob Rogers, 2CH

Michael McGlynn, the CD’s producer, has pulled together a very talented group of musicians for this album and has also contributed a great deal of his own exceptional musicianship. He plays keyboard, percussion and guitar on most of the tracks as well as singing background vocals.

Brian signed to Blue Pie Productions in June, providing worldwide access for his album ‘A Mark In Time’.

“Brian's music is what got us together. He has something magical in his voice. He is pure class and a star in the making.” - Damien Reilly, CEO, Blue Pie Productions.
