Thanks so much for showing an interest in the music of Brian Black…and what this artist has to offer to those of you who are curious as to what this mutli-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter can musically create at your venue, concert or event!

My Music

It’s important for all hosts to realize that my repertoire allows me to do an entire show of singer-songwriter favorites including John Mayer, Van Morrison, Eric Clapton and John Hiatt to name a few. Mix in wailin’ blues on the “silver bullet” National Style O slide guitar with harmonica cuttin’ through for good measure, and you have one of the most eclectic musical combinations on the Central Coast!
