Brian lives in NYC, but has played all over from Nashville, TN to Italy. On top of the numerous places he has taken his music physically, one of his singles was featured on The Disney Channel’s television show ‘Naturally Sadie.’His music caught the attention of producer Ron Dante (Neil Diamond, Barry Manilow) who then motivated Ted Pearlman (Bob Dylan) to join him in recording Brian.
Brian Mackey’s music isn’t just romantic, there is some humor to be found in his songs like the alt-rock track ‘I Cant Dance’ on the ‘Brian Mackey EP 2009,’ and the acoustic band-based ‘Radio’ where Mackey name drop’s all the over played music of our time.
New York City artist, Brian has not only broken the mold of a typical singer/songwriter, he’s smashed it to bits and thrown the dust into the ears of the listener, to create a new sound that captivates the soul.
His music is an eclectic mix of acoustic and synth-driven up-tempo indie rock, with a hint of americana. Originally from a tin roof town on the Northern Florida/Georgia border, his songs reflect life experiences, meshed with new found freedoms in NYC.
At the end of December 2012 our staff will choose the JAMSPHERE “SONG OF THE YEAR” from the 3 songs with the highest number of “Thumbs Up” voting from our readers.
