In late 2008, Brian signed with Lamon, a Grammy award-winning indie label which has allowed him much room for development and creativity on his debut album with the help of award-winning producer Dave Moody. Since June 9, 2009 his album has received radio airplay nationally and among being solicited by some high profile networks, Brian recently signed a licensing deal for the film “Much Ado About Middle School” for the song "Never Gonna Need To".

His debut album is blended with such rockin' tracks as “All This Time” and “I've Got Everything” and softer tracks that have a soothing and melodic vibe, a truly well-rounded collection of songs that to an unexpecting ear can take one on a hypnotic ride. “No Complaints” was Brian's first song written when he was 17. “I was feeling strong emotions during the time I wrote 'No Complaints' and I think that's what I needed in order to learn what being a songwriter was all about,” he recollects.

Other tracks on the album include “I'll Be There When I Can” and the closing track “I Believe” which talks about a common dilemma in society. “'I Believe' could relate to many different things but I like to think of a homeless person asking for don't know who's real and who's fake. I think most of us want to help others but sometimes hesitate and wonder if it will actually make a difference”, he comments.

Brian's influences grew from a wave of musical acts that made their way to the mainstream during the past decades. Some of these include an eclectic variety of performers and bands such as Jimi Hendrix, Nirvana and the Eagles. His style began to surface after writing his first song years later. North Carolina was a haven for his musical inspiration and as a child he was exposed to oldies, soft rock and southern country at an early age. “When I was about 3 years old, I was given a kiddie guitar by my godfather. I ran around the house with it singing 'Johnny B. Goode' and Elvis songs,” he explains.

Prior to starting an official career as a pop rock recording artist Brian made his first worldwide TV appearance on the Gospel Country Network after being discovered by Dottie Snow at a regional talent convention. Since mid-summer 2009, he has performed on both large and small stages in support of his album and has gained support from a growing fan base.
