Growing up in the small village of Kell in Southern Illinois, Brian showed an interest in the arts at an early age. His first query into expression came in the form of writing. Eventually turning those words into song lyrics he became the front man for a successful touring band. After several years, the musical career slowed. Brian went to college, then a few different cooking jobs here and there. Throughout this time writing remained a constant.
After a decade of writing short stories and poetry, Brian’s first publication came in a local magazine and later he self-published a short story teaming up with photographer Robbie Edwards. Partners in art and life, they reside in Southern Illinois and continue to progress as artists together. Their next release is called Bootlegger and will be out in 2018.
