Album Notes
Soldier's Story: I wrote "Soldier" in 1999. I was preparing for a trip to Santa Barbara to attend a one-week retreat with Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh. While doing walking meditation in the forest behind my apartment building a feeling of great light arose in me. Tears started to flow, as my heart opened. And the music and lyrics for Soldier were brought to life. The cover photo is of China Beach in the distance, a popular vacation spot, and where American soldiers first landed in Vietnam during the War. The photo was taken by me while part of a delegation with Thich Nhat Hanh in 2007. I played these three tracks for fellow delegates along our journey, "To heal the remaining wounds of war."

Reviews and Testimonials: “Brian’s lighthearted, fun-loving humor and his naked honesty shook us into a knowing of our own freedom and aliveness. He and his music are a delight!” –Marilyn & Dale

"Whether your musical frequency is closer to rock or easy listening, Brian's concert will feed your soul with the music it needs. To say his sounds and words will transport you, can't describe the deeply moving place where you will land." -Sherry Goldstein's Yoga Sanctuary

"...your words and gifts are in no way immature. Thank you for your strength, intelligence, understanding, poetry and commitment to life and recovery." -Mike Lew, author of Victims No Longer

“I heard Brian Kimmel sing and play piano and I was moved to tears within minutes, uplifted and awed. He is one of the most talented musicians I have encountered. He is also a beautiful spiritual being. And, he is only 24 years old.” -Ellen Laura, Triumph Coaching

“Impressive piano work, eloquent vocals and thought-provoking lyrics, all intertwined with touches of flamboyant charm.” -Methow Valley News

"Brian's music is a healing balm." -Daya Tobin

"Brian is one of the strongest willed people I know. He has achieved a level of self acceptance that most people don't find until they're twice or three times his age. He has mastered doing what makes him happy. Seemingly free of doubt, he also has a kind regard for the people in his life. Brian is always looking for ways to grow and improve himself which is an admirable quality in anyone." - Ben

"I fell in love with Brian the first time I saw him. He's a live wire with the brightest, purest energy running through." -Christine
