Brian's music is forged from both his native tradition and from his love of a wider musical tapestry. His traveling and touring in India and Eastern Europe had a deep and profound affect on his talent as a composer, hinted at early on with the release of his first cd,'When The Party's Over' in 1993. In 2008 he was commissioned by The Sage Centre in Newcastle Upon Tyne to compose a piece for the opening of 'The Eighth Bridge', a major art installation across the river Tyne.

He has toured and recorded with many artistes including Cara Dillon and Kate Rusby, and at Celtic Connections 2008 premiered his northern big band, The Singing Tree; thirteen performers, musicians,singers, poets and dancers, all from the northern counties of Ireland. Brian's new album, 'The Ravishing Genius Of Bones' was released in March 2010 and coincided with the formation of his new quartet KAN.
