I grew up in Roberta, Georgia (pop. 808)...

I'd have to say my biggest influence is my dad. He played guitar and sang for me ever since I was a baby. His music was the only thing I ever listened to as a kid.

And...Whoever bought me that Mariah Carey tape "Emotions" did me a huge favor... I would practice singing to her every day. I owe my lucky ear to my dad and that tape.

The first time I sang in public was at an all black Southern Baptist church on Christmas eve when I was 8. For some reason I decided to sing "White Christmas..." I just recently realized the humor in that -- but luckily at the time, everyone thought it was cute...

Soon after, I started singing in talent shows and would do the National Anthem for opening day of little league baseball.

I would always act like i could play my dads Gibson -- 'till he was getting pissed that I kept knocking it around...So he bought me my very own guitar when I was 13. As soon as i learned a new chord -- i wrote a new song...And thats pretty much how it goes.

Testimonials

“The Vox Concert Series in Marshfield has been an incredible success. As a lifelong resident of the City of Marshfield, I too, wanted more options for entertainment growing up and in college; I would often attend concerts outside of Marshfield. As Mayor, I certainly recognize Marshfield’s true asset is our Quality of life. The Vox Concert Series continues to enhance our community’s quality of life by providing entertainment to our residents that used to be only available by traveling to other, larger, communities. After attending several events, the quality of the performers, depth of musical genre’s and the response by residents confirms what I have known for a long time. Marshfield yearns for entertainment opportunities such as those that the Vox Concert Series provides and with Brian’s leadership have contributed to our quality of life, making the Marshfield community stronger and a destination for music!”
