Initially classically trained, experiencing blues and rock & roll in the early 1960's was, for Brian, a Damascene moment. He cut his teeth in the London club scene during those halcyon years of the mid to late 1960's - as an audience member in venues such as Les Cousins, on Greek Street in Soho, listening to and learning from legendary musicians such as Al Stewart, Davey Graham, Wizz Jones, Bert Jansch, John Renbourn and John Martyn.
Moving to New York in 1968, he studied painting, drawing and photography and entered the musical world of clubs, festivals, concert halls and the ubiquitous college circuit. During this period, in addition to a partnership in a successful live music club in Greenwich Village, he toured in every State of the Union except Hawaii, spending time also in Canada and Mexico. In addition to playing on the folk circuit in venues such as Gerde's Folk City, Cafe Wha'? and The Gaslight, he was also in one of the first bands to regularly perform in Hilly Cristal's CBGB's, on The Bowery, sharing the stage with Blondie, Talking Heads, The Ramones and Television whilst recording on the Adelphi label.
Returning to Europe in 1979, Brian toured internationally, recording on the Highway and Topic labels. During this time, he lived firstly in Copenhagen, then in Amsterdam, followed by Paris and London. It was, to quote Hemingway, 'A Moveable Feast'.
In the mid 1990's he relocated, with his family, to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where he worked with some excellent musicians and technicians, along the way assisting Sir George Martin on his film "The Rhythms of Life".
So far, as a solo artist, Brian has completed a five-track EP entitled "Paint the Town", followed by a full twelve-track album entitled "Everything Takes Forever". Before leaving Brazil he recorded three tracks for an EP entitled "Hold On To The Night".
Since returning to the United Kingdom he has added a further LP to his catalogue, entitled "Time & Tide". Another LP in the works has a working title of 'One For The Road', which will include some blues classics.
He also likes to work on classical pieces, of which the five-movement symphony 'Winter Solstice' is an example, along with ambient music for film.
He is currentlyy collaborating with international musicians around the globe, taking full advantage of the wonders of modern technology. A recent example of this is his collaborative CD with Caesar Pacifici, his old musical partner from the 1970's, entitled 'In Good Company' - recorded in the USA, the Republic of Ireland and the UK. Their newest collaborative CD is entitled 'Leaf' and was released in December, 2019.
