Brian McKenzie

"Brian McKenzie is an old soul in the body of a modern day singer songwriter. He takes the roots element of Americana and adds his clean, smooth vocal style to create a sound once described by a club owner as “Ameri-Crooner”. Brian draws on influences that range from those crooners of the 1940s and 50s, to early country, rockabilly and rock n' roll, to the singer songwriters of today. He blends the ingredients into a cohesive, well mixed drink that you can easily get lost in. Brian's music has been described as the combination of Chris Isaak, Edwin McCain and the Mavericks".

"Brian McKenzie has a big heart and it comes across in his music.  A true gentleman with a beautiful voice, Brian is a wonderful artist." - Phil Madeira

Not only does he write tremendous songs (his brand new CD, "Looking Over Yesterday," is consistently excellent and beautifully produced) but McKenzie has an appreciation for classic American music. For every nod to Chris Isaak or the Mavericks, McKenzie offers a subtle and melodic tip of the hat to Marty Robbins or Gordon Lightfoot." - Rick Koster​ (The Day Connecticut) [+]
