Brian McKenzie

Brian McKenzie is a New England based singer songwriter who started his music career in the early 90s as the founding member, music writer, and guitarist of the heavy-rock band: Warner/Giant Records recording artists "Kilgore" (formerly Kilgore Smudge), whose accomplishments include Ozzfest '98, and multiple shows/tours over the world. He continues to work, both with Kilgore, and as a singer-songwriter with 3 albums under his name to date.

The Recording Academy placed him on the Official Ballot for the 55th Annual Grammy Awards in four categories for the album “Resolution” (2011), and his album, "Looking Over Yesterday" (2015) features Nashville singer-songwriter / musician / Grammy award winner Phil Madeira on two tracks.

Brian's project, Brian McKenzie and Always September's album "Bruising From the Fall" is an emotional, powerfully melodic, rock-based singer-songwriter project featuring a great line-up of musicians including Bill Southerland and Marty O'Brien (Kilgore), Brad O'Brien, and Chris Piccirillo. The album is currently shooting for a Fall 2017 release.

Brian is endorsed by Blueridge guitars, Shubb Capos, LR Baggs electronics, Godin Guitars, and Cleartone Strings. His song "40 East" landed a spot in the Jonathan Silverman directed film "A Bet's a Bet". He is continuously performing throughout the Northeast, East Coast, and Nashville.
