Hailing from the music hotbed of West Georgia, Brian’s hardworking nature has landed him opening slots for many reputable artists in nearly every genre. As a result of Brian’s versatility, he has shared stages with KISS, Alabama, Zac Brown Band, Marshall Tucker Band, Kip Moore, Georgia Satellites, Edwin McCain, Blackberry Smoke, Shawn Mullins, and Lynyrd Skynyrd, among others. He was named as an ‘Artist to Watch’ by CMA, Billboard, and CMT.
Brian claimed the title of highest independent charting artist on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart with his uplifting sophomore Top 10 single “Shine A Little Love” which celebrated national media recognition and went No.1 on CMT’s Pure 12-Pack Countdown for seven weeks in a row. Later singles released charted in the Top 20 and he is proudly endorsed artist with Taylor Guitars and Lee Oskar Harmonicas.
Brian released a 6 track EP in 2019, but when the pandemic hit in early 2020, as with musicians all over the world, things slowed as he was unable to tour to promote the EP so he took the opportunity to work with a collective of musicians and artists across the world on a music video for his earlier hit 'Shine a Little Love' to thank all first and front line responders across the world including the NHS in the UK. Calling upon his friends Zac Brown Band and notable artists such as Billy Dean and James Otto to take part, they each recorded videos from home. The video was picked up by national US broadcaster FOX and it was aired across millions of homes in the USA. He went on to use some of his time during the lockdown to write and record new music.
It has been a long 2 and 1/2 years getting back on track after the pandemic, but Brian found other ways to continue his creative ambition. In 2020, he partnered with Producers Richard Saperstein and Beau Turpin in a film production company (Bluestone Entertainment) working as a Music Supervisor. They are currently finishing their feature film, Slingshot (starring Casey Affleck and Laurence Fishburne) due for release in 2023. Also, during this time, Brian developed a friendship with Will Turpin of Collective Soul and partnered with his Real 2 Reel Studio. They've now formed a publishing and production company helping artists new and old realize their visions.
With lots more new music on its way from Brian, plus some BIG news just around the corner, it sure is an exciting time for fans of this extremely talented Singer-Songwriter!
