Through his musical career, Brian has explored many different genres of music, all of which have served him well in creating his own unique sound.
This sound comes down to the amalgamation of three specific styles. They are ingredients, they blend to create what is ultimately Brian's unique recipe for song.
The most prominent of these ingredients is his darker take on North American Folk.
He works with gritty and abrasive vocal tones that add a timelessness to his voice.
Secondly, Brian uses warmer tones in his vocals coupled with ornamentation inherent to that of classic R&B. It is here where he smoothens the edges of his folk sound. His grit immediately becomes more palatable.
Finally, Brian draws great inspiration and style from the Irish ballad, Brian shapes his writings tightly around the structure and word play of old Irish lamentations.
