Brian Rath

Brian Rath


"14 Best Singer Songwriters of Greenwich Village," by U.M.O., NYC 2005. Award-winning singer-songwriter with a knock-out, soul-stirring voice that tackles original ballads, acoustic pop, and some blues. Strong roots in 60's pop, folk troubadours, and a unique hint of 50's crooner.


Brian Rath is a singer-songwriter from Rochester, NY. He began performing in bars and folk clubs around Boston in the early 2000's while studying English Literature at Northeastern University.

Influenced by the confessional Rufus Wainwright, the cryptic Dylan, the psychedelic pop of the Beatles, and a handful of crooners, Brian has amassed a slew of homemade demos and performs regularly throughout Upstate New York.

His song "21 Old" was chosen for the "14 Best Singer Songwriters of Greenwhich Village" CD compilation in 2005, put out by UMO Music. He was also named one of the "6 Music Acts to Watch in 2006," by Insider, a Rochester entertainment weekly.
