Feeling a bit camera shy


“Yesterday is gone and from its ashes I’ve risen”, a lyric from Brian’s song Invisible Prison, pays homage to his Americana heroes of yesterday while declaring the arrival of a new generation of songwriters trying to expand on its tradition. At an early age Brian was exposed to the music of Bob Dylan, The Band, The Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers, Dire Straits, and Tom Petty, and after all the music that has come and gone in his life since this is what he comes back to. His songs echo the themes of his influences with their sincere lyrics and delivery, but cast new light on them in a new modern setting. For a generation known for instant gratification and a sense of impending loss of the American dream, Brian sings songs of redemption and restraint. Brian is no slouch on guitar either. He is known for his prowess as a slide guitar player, evoking the spirit of Duane Allman and George Harrison’s country blues playing.
Brian grew up on the south side of Chicago where he studied guitar at Columbia College. In 2003 he moved to Los Angeles in pursuit of his craft and a more forgiving winter. His live shows are a no frills music experience delivered with power and urgency.
