A modern day crooner of standards, originals, and early country.

Biography

Brian Kremer is billed as a crooner/songwriter, pointing with a Dean Martin wink to an elegant sound that plays somewhere between Bing Crosby and Hank Williams on the radio dial. Brian’s polished, tender voice and guitar-picking charm are fully showcased on his new album Echoes & Twirls. Backed by the award-winning acoustic trio The Carper Family, he recorded live in a large, vaulted-ceiling studio to analog tape just the way his heroes once did. The dozen country-tinged songs include standards like “Cold, Cold Heart” and “Don’t Fence Me In”, classic-influenced originals, and deeper cuts once made hits by a young Frank Sinatra. The Austin Chronicle said of Echoes & Twirls that "If Cole Porter's songwriting were any less iconic, it'd be impossible to tell where his words end and Brian Kremer's begin." (August, 2015)

Brian was selected for the 2015 ATX6 (including Austin Musician Of The Year 2015 Gina Chavez) which sent him to perform as an Austin musical ambassador at NXNE in Toronto, Austin Week in Angers, France, and Halifax Pop Explosion in Nova Scotia. 

Brian's résumé includes a classical Grammy nomination with the Dale Warland Singers and jazz studies at Berklee College of Music. His performances include earnest interpretations from the American Songbook, his own creations, a little whistling, and a lot of romance and heartbreak.
