a Band named Brian Short Info

Imagine Billy Bragg meets Johnny Cash with Jon Ottway doing the introductions and Levellers shouting abuse from the shadows. That’s what you can expect from a Band named Brian: hard-hitting raw passion - laced with wit, wisdom and soul. Through his canny but accessible country-tinged folk-punk, Brian takes audiences on a journey through tales of love, loss, celebration and psychosis, pricking their social conscience with a twinkle in his eye...

“Like an Acoustic/Folk version of Tom Lehrer; good tunes, funny lyrics and intelligence.”
“Ballroom-blitz meets the levellers with a sprinkling of Neil Innes.”
“Great... lyrics are quite stand alone, in the tradition of Bob Dylan”
“Wit and wisdom indeed.”
“Middle Class Blues was like reliving my life in three and a half minutes.”
“...Love Cashier - makes me laugh after a bad day”
“Many people write songs – Brian gives birth to them – they're that personal.”
