The folk-pop singing sensation, BRIAN WEBB, recently released his fifth album, Strange Way to Grieve, and the critics keep coming back with praise. Amazon.com describes Brian as, a “Southern-bred musician with a songwriter’s soul and a vicious honest streak.” His powerfully intense lyrics are matched by passionate pop vocals, soulful gospel rock, and accomplished guitar skills. Brian Webb’s got them all and he’s got a compelling stage presence to boot. In 2000, Brian wandered north to Boston from his hometown of Atlanta, where he had shared stages with future well-knowns such as Shawn Mullins, Josh Joplin, India Arie and Angie Aparo. He quickly rose to the top of the Boston music scene in a matter of months, earning himself a Boston Music Award. Brian continues to hone his skills as a singer-songwriter and is capturing the hearts (and ears) of music lovers all over country. If you’re big fans of Counting Crows, Patty Griffin, and Ray LaMontagne, you’ll enjoy Brian Webb’s music.
MIKE KINNEBREW creates story from words that speak language in song – song that ignites. His passion is reflected in enthused followers throughout the Southeast. Every audience engaged. Every listener connected. Calling him old fashioned complements his natural desire to connect. Paying tribute to great wordsmiths Paul Simon, James Taylor, Frederick Buechner and C.S. Lewis, Mike writes music that is intelligent, not just successful. His inherent ability to blend life with his work is perhaps the ultimate reason for his strength in song. Pulling from his East Atlanta roots, love for family and relational manner with people, Mike’s soulful words provide foundation for the conversation, give life and spark love. In his words, he evokes connection between song and person. Listeners are quick to agree.
He is at his best when listeners find a friend in his music – true to his kindred tendency. Mike is known to be just the needed element at an intimate celebration or favorite local venue. He and his band are a regular headliner at the renowned Eddie’s Attic in Atlanta. It was there that pop favorite John Mayer took notice of Mike’s music as he took the stage. His reaction: “Dude, you’ve got it!” Mike has also shared the stage with such music greats: Oteil Burbidge (The Allman Brothers Band), Kristian Bush (Sugarland), Matthew Perryman Jones and CCM artist Jaci Velasquez.
