Brian Dring

"Subliminal Criminal" is the new album from Montreal native Brian Dring, featuring touches of Latin jazz, smooth jazz, reggae and acid jazz. "I always keep Montreal in my heart me because I was exposed to a lot of different styles there," he says.

Moving to Connecticut USA at 23, he played with a variety of bands and studied with smooth jazz pianist Chris Geith who was living in CT at that time. "Studying with Chris inspired me to write songs in the jazz vein, but adding my own experience of playing not only with jazz groups but also R&B, salsa and reggae bands."

It was at this time that he met the vocalists who would contribute their considerable talents to the vocal tracks on this album.
