PERSONAL

Brian and wife Jean now call Myrtle Beach, South Carolina home in spite of his having grown up as a 15th-generation New England Yankee. Two daughters have families of their own, Anna in Massachusetts, and Amanda in Germany.

Most of his off hours are spent on the computer with genealogy and American history projects on which he has worked for years. All the time he spent on the air in radio goes hand in hand with Brian's encyclopedic knowledge of American music. Should you need to know for any odd reason, what song was topping the charts in 1982, or 1952, or 1922...and what groups covered the first, what movie the second was used in, or what kind of early phonograph the latter was played on...he's your guy!

But this dedicated guy is not all work and black silk shirts. Nice days before showtimes will find Brian out exploring whatever city he happens to be appearing in by bicycle. Check out the theatre, you might find a certain golden '63 Riviera with the appropriate license plate of "NDREAMS" parked out back, waiting for a driver in familiar sunglasses (who cannot cruise past an antique shop, a historical marker on the highway or a crumbling cemetery without stopping.)

Brian is both exactingly professional, and an easy-going gentleman
who brings natural talent, experience and positive energy
into any project. He throughly enjoys his career, his family,
and his traveling (make that "Traveling Wilbury") lifestyle,
and considers himself a man truly blessed.

You might not easily recognize him when he's not in character! >>>

Brian has performed for members of Roy Orbison's band and for some of Roy's most loyal fans
from across the world at their annual gatherings, giving him the chance to meet
some of Roy's friends and family, his co-writers, and music industry associates.


The folks who know, agree - Brian is simply THE BEST...

"I can only say after working with Roy and being in the business as long as I have, and always looking for that different, unique voice...as far as being a producer that when I heard your voice, I heard that very same uniqueness that Roy had...and now that is gone, except for what he left on tapes, CDs and videos. You have that unique sound, and the feel, and the vibrato that he was so very famous for...so carry on, and be yourself, and let Roy's voice live through you. If I were to put you against the rest I have heard, they're not even in the running. If I can help in any possible way, please, let me know...I will endorse that great voice of yours to the max!"
Bucky Barrett, Roy's lead guitar player, in Nashville

"I had to listen to this more than once. Then I went to my files and spent a few hours looking over my pictures and charts and memories of my time with Roy. I hadn't looked at them in years. Thank you for helping to bring back that part of my life"
Jim Johnson, Roy's bass player, after receiving his copy of Brian's CD "Orbisonia"

"This is so cool!...It's like being back in the 80s!"
"Turbo" Kirby, Roy's keyboard player, after "The Lost Concert " show in Nashville

"You know that Orbison song, "You Got It"?...well, Brother Brian, you got it!
Gordon Stoker, tenor in the legendary vocal group "The Jordanaires"


BRIAN'S MISSION STATEMENT:

"I can't pretend to speak for all who do shows in tribute to Roy, but we professionals as a general rule are quick to agree that there is only one Roy Orbison.

I'm certainly never going to say I could replace the man, nor would I want to. My job is to perform his songs, adopt his look, respect his legacy and give his fans a focal point to honor the man and their memories of him."
