(Through the Light)
“One of my favorite CDs of all time :)"
"Lots of influences including early Elton John, Pink Floyd, Beatles... but in the end, unique. Headphones on and a rainy car ride or evening”
“This one's a keeper! I have read a lot about what influences can be heard in this music, and there is a lot of truth to the comparisons. I felt more of a sense of inspiration than influence. This CD is a rare find, and is tough to put away. Great stuff!”
"The music made me laugh and made me cry, it brought joy to my soul. What an incredible gift.”
Brian's music spans several musical styles/genres.
