ABOUT

The whole story is on my extensive website brianthefolksinger.com and I am a lifelong professional looking to add other instruments/voices to my recordings and potentially a performing/touring band or bands (in different genres/areas). Though I sing many standards/originals, modern and traditional, in many American genres, I have unique sound and style from my backup instrument, my 5 octave solid-body electric hammered dulcimer, which fills the piano/percussion/guitar slot in the solo singer mix, or in ensemble with many instruments.
