Biography

You often wonder how great bands come together. Is it fate, a little bit of luck, some sort of chance? What? The real answer is, who cares? Do you love them? Can you identify with the music? Do they move you? Is there something about the music that makes you feel good? If you give this band a chance, Bril will deliver on all of them. Don’t take my word for it. Check them out for yourself. See a show, pick up a c.d. These guys are contagious.

What is Bril? A building known for the great songwriters of the seventies? British Slang? A formal identity? I guess you can say it’s all of those. But more importantly, it’s what the music defines for you. You can say they sound like a band you’ve heard before or a sound that reminds you of a time or place that you wish you could be in again. But to say you don’t love this band from the first note struck is anything but a lie.

Through a car radio, cd, or a live performance, you may say that they sound like something you love or love to hate. Whatever the case, Bril is a group of guys who all share music as a passion, not a passion to play, but a passion to live. The emotion that defines this band can be found in every track on their “Fourth Iteration” e.p. as well as their upcoming, full length entitled "Airless Alarm," due out summer of 2005 on Kirtland Records.

Bril has always been an evolving enigma. When they lose themselves in the music that’s when you know its happening. They have been crafting songs together from the beginning, pushing the boundries of comfort zones and pesonal influences to bring a style of music all of their own.

Dave Starr comes from a classic singer/songwriter background following in no ones footsteps. He may remind you of people you know or have heard before, but the sincerity he brings you into with each song, you’ll know he has a style unlike any of his peers. His lyrics don’t just define the song or himself, if you listen closely, you’ll find they define you too.

Kris Winrich has spent his whole life preparing to be in the limelight. He brings swirling guitars and rich tectures to new levels in every note that radiates from his guitar. Technically advanced yet simply defined, he mixes that dirty British guitar tone with driving hooks to keep your attention completely focused.

Scott Nelson is the rock. Period. His driving bass keeps this band rolling through mindfields of musical madness. From the top to the bottom, Scott finds his way to make your heart stop and start, over and over with his thunderous, driving grooves.

Kelly, the younger brother Winrich, is caught in the middle of all that surrounds him. He unleashes himself relentlessly onto his drums and takes control of the rythm like a man possessed. Kelly is the kind of person who enjoys taking the pieces of the puzzle apart before he puts them back together in hopes of discovering something new and fresh.

What else is left to say? Great music, great band, great show!!! Don’t miss it!!! As they tour throughout the U.S. and Europe in support of their upcoming full length release, they will be infecting the airwaves with their form of rock and roll. Pick up their music, check out a show, come be part of what is the next great wave of sound, the Bril sound. To be continued................................

Lyrics

Whenever You're Gone

Written By: Dave Starr/Bril

Take me on another trip
All my money’s spent
You say that’s ok
I might be broke
Im not the only one to live this way
Still you’re here with me
You won’t let the sun go down
Wherever you go I’ll be with you
Wherever you hide I want to hide there to
My days feel lost struggle just to breathe
Whenever you’re gone
Now you say you want to leave
Follow all your dreams
That’s allright
I know you’ll make it
To the top won’t see you fake it
You’ll find out what you need
I won’t let the sun go down
Wherever you go I’ll be with you
Wherever you hide I want to hide there to
My days feel lost struggle just to breathe
Whenever you’re gone
Don’t run away
When all your freedom’s gone
Don’t you run away
When all you have is gone
Don’t let it bring you down
Everything will find itself

Top of the Bridge

Written By: Dave Starr/Bril


feeling empty
arrested by my silence
I can’t control myself
I scream for relief
You turn your back on me
What’s it take for you to hear me

This empty noise living inside my head
(empty as the radio)
top of the bridge is where my freedom is
(empty as the radio)
feels like I’ve lost it all my desire’s cashed
why is this noise so empty

I feel unnoticed
Feel’s like there’s so much war on me
Why do I blame myself
Inside I feel the screams
Where’s the keys to let them out
Why can’t you leave me

This empty noise living inside my head
(empty as the radio)
top of the bridge is where my freedom is
(empty as the radio)
feels like I’ve lost it all my desire’s cashed
why is this noise so empty

This empty noise living inside my head
top of the bridge is where my freedom is
it’s where my freedom is

Faster

Written By: Dave Starr/Bril

Feel lost with myself
Standing still
Cant give myself
Why the fuck am I still here
Buried in my fear

Everytime you run I’m faster
Everyone’s looking for the answer

My shadows gone cold
Too much time for my mind
This ship’s sinking fast
From this old town
Can’t leave myself

Everytime you run I’m faster
Everyone’s looking for the answer

Feel lost with myself
Standing still
