10.20.13 - R/N/Z Magazine, USA


“Very few albums pass under my nose that I can’t find at least something wrong with, yet I can’t bring forth any gripe about Facedown in the Dirt....what makes it so unique is his ability to straddle lines without crossing them...the groove is the glue that binds Husky’s great taste for tone with his top notch songwriting...”

- Triggerman, Saving Country Music, USA


“Husky brings a rough, shambolic yet fist-tight blues that stomps, honks and grinds it out. My ol' neighbor lady'd say "That's Nasty!"”

- Rick Saunders, Deep Blues, USA


“They take North Mississippi Hill Country blues, drag it through a few hollers, douse it with kerosene and blow it up real good“

- Rubber City Review, USA


" Husky Burnette deals in just the kind of illicit substances I like best: a rough voice, a dirty groove and a foot-stomping beat."
09.06.11 - Now This Sound Is Brave, USA


“A Delta Blues-meets-Jimmy Page-circa-In My Time of Dying raw duo show...a seated, Son House-inspired blend of noise and nuance... Burnette's achingly slow-burn guitar work seems to be in the right place—which is more than most of your Alligator Records crowd can say”

“Facedown In The Dirt: My CD of the year...i f***ing love this beast!”
11.27.12

- R/N/Z Magazine, USA


“Husky rocks it like a beast and that's how we like it, baby. Hunched, sweatin', swaggerin' and all up on ya. Think of a hair more traditional early Black Diamond Heavies, a grunge R.L., or a metal-influenced T. Bone Walker”

Bio

The Blues are a religion and Brian "Husky" Burnette sho nuff preaches it. You can feel the testimony as he blends Delta Blues, Rock n Roll and Electric Blues. His music is gritty, soulful, southern, low-down and dirty.

Husky Burnette signed with Rusty Knuckles record label this year and released his latest LP, Tales From East End Blvd., in August 2013. The new album was recorded and produced by J.B. Beverley and Buck Thrailkill at Rebel Roots Studio and features guest appearances from Shooter Jennings and Billy Don Burns, among others.

Husky was the featured Blues artist on ITunes for four weeks, and since being released, Tales From East End Blvd has been a featured album on iTunes Blues (currently the past nine weeks). His music can also be found on New Releases Now and more, as well as on Pandora.

Husky, who hails from Chattanooga, TN, has followed in the musical family footsteps of rockabilly kings Johnny and Dorsey Burnette. Husky has written and recorded his own music for several years and toured with such greats as Roger Alan Wade and Hank Williams III. He has shared the stage with many others such as Leon Russell, T-Model Ford, Kenny Brown, Guy Clark, Emmylou Harris, Shooter Jennings, Scott H. Biram and J.J. Grey & Mofro.

His influences include Roger Alan Wade, Leon Russell, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Jimi Hendrix/Band of Gypsys, Guy Clark, Lee Michaels, Chuck Berry, Jr. Walker & The Allstars, Furry Lewis and Willie Dixon.
