The southern historic stories of The Band, the longing lonesome voice of Neil Young, the driving rock of Fleetwood Mac. These might be the references that come to mind upon hearing Brian Dolzani’s ninth record, 2018’s ‘Horse’. Brian is an American troubadour in the truest sense of the term – traveling the country singing his deeply personal blues, hopes, and stories. No Depression magazine calls Brian’s music ‘remarkably affecting’ and Lonesome Noise blog says his music is ‘medicine for the soul’.

Born and raised in Connecticut, Brian met his first guitar at age 16, at the same time his father died in a car accident. He poured his feelings into the instrument, which he found to be the best healing for life’s hardest pains. Many of Brian’s strongest songs deal with tragic loss and life’s meaning from a perspective of feeling, perseverance, desire, and seeking beauty and truth.

They say the most difficult way to perform is alone on stage. That’s how Brian often rides – just the singer, the song, and a passionate, engaging performance.
