Cancel Me

You can’t cancel my life, you can’t cancel my dream, no

Maybe you matter, just not to me

Oh say don’t you see’, this aint’ just your party

You can’t cancel love, you can’t cancel me

I need a leader who won’t see color

I need a brother who treats me like my mother

Put some food up on my table, let me keep my job

Don’t lie to my kids, don’t act like a mob

You can’t cancel my life, you can’t cancel my dream, no

Maybe you matter, just not to me

Oh say don’t you see’, this aint’ just your party

You can’t cancel love, you can’t cancel me

The hood is good, when the people play straight

The hood is good, when the people don’t hate

We get along, but we may not agree

People can stay or people can leave

Give My Soul

This story in a song, is about living a life with regret, but still having hope for something better in the end.

It might be sad to some, but its meant to be honest and hopeful.

If you know someone who has suffered in this way, please share it, maybe it will be helpful or healing in some way…

Fueled by fans

In 2019 I posted a video of my 1st verse and chorus to this song…

So many of you told me what the song meant to you, even in its rough form

Fast forward to now, its done and its something we did together…thank you for the inspiration…enjoy!

Versatile, accommodating and entertaining!

Brian was wonderful! He began by playing his guitar and singing thru the appetizer and dinner portion of the evening. He was attentive to the time and made our announcements as needed. When the dance party started he turned up the music engaging the crowd. I appreciated his patience with the grandkids, the teenagers and Spencer who wanted to DJ with him. He was so kind and gracious. I would highly recommend him.

Marvelous country performance!

Brian was everything we had hoped for and much more. He was such a great addition to our birthday celebration. The whole family loved him. His playlist resonated with all of us. Brian is very easy to work with. I recommend him without any hesitation. It’s good to know there are still people who take pride in their art. We had a blast, Brian.Thank you!



My Vibe

I believe in the story of a song and how it can bring us together one way or another…

Recording Artist

Making music with others on record is the ultimate test of my vision. Nashville, TN has been my main location for collaborating with the best musicians and engineers in the world…


I write all my own lyrics and music for my catalog. I usually start on a guitar or piano. Songwriting is more than writing poetry, its connecting words with sound that gives them a bigger than life opportunity to cut through.


A good song needs to be organized into a story that cuts through the noise and gets to the ears of the masses. I love this aspect of making my music.

Studio Owner/Musician

Having a studio to experiment with sound is an amazing tool. My main instruments are voice, guitar, piano, bass, drums, as well as my pc and software used as incredible instruments unto themselves…
