Album Notes
A CD of original songs by Brian Elkington

'A Mark in Time", a new CD of original songs by Brian Elkington, is a refreshing example of the best of the acoustic singer-songwriter genre. Brian hails from Minnesota, but has lived in Sydney, Australia for the past 13 years.

He was born in northern Minnesota and spent his childhood among the lakes and woods of the canoe country near the Canadian border.

Brian first started playing guitar at aged 17, and began writing songs almost immediately. He has played his original songs at some of America's greatest venues, including Gerde's Folk City in Greenwich Village and the Bluebird Café in Nashville.

During his college years and after, he was half of a musical duo with friend Daniel Mohs. They were known as "Elkington Mohs" and spent 10 years traveling around the United States playing music, including a large number of Brian's original songs.

Brian eventually decided to move to Nashville, Tennessee to be a professional song writer. He had several songs published and recorded during his three and half years in "Music City". Brian now lives in Sydney with his wife, Jane, a Sydney native he met in Minnesota, and their three daughters.

Brian's life is one of contradictions and unexpected turns. Perhaps it's these juxtapositions that give his songs their richness and depth.

Michael McGlynn, the CD's producer, has pulled together a very talented group of musicians for this album and has also contributed a great deal of his own exceptional musicianship. He plays keyboard, percussion and guitar on most of the tracks as well as singing background vocals.

Friends, family, home, accidental lovers and true love are some of the chapters in this story - each one part of the lyrical journey, with steps familiar to us all.

"Husband's lament" covers the coming to grips with life's choices. "Odyssey" tells the story of 10 years of chasing opportunities in music all around the United States. "Boomers' Lullaby", is a song that will surely strike a chord with all "baby boomers" and anyone else who has experienced some of life's vicissitudes.

Together, Michael and Brian have created a musical experience that, like a good book - is a journey you'll enjoy taking - and when you've finished, you'll want to do it all over again.

Lynn Laughlin

Original sound and lyrics, talent for getting to the point
This cd fits right in with my very eclectic taste in music.
Artist's voice is quite original and he does not attempt to
merely be a carbon copy of someone else. Real talent for
saying what he wants to say in a beautiful way. Already a
favorite of mine, and plan to buy more as gifts.

Michael Patterson

Brian's music is relaxing and his delivery is smooth


relaxing and thought provoking lyrics
Lyrics and music are thought provoking, both bring to mind Gordon Lightfoot's approach to writing and singing.

Maura Kolars

Warm, sentimental and leaves me feeling content.
This music brings me back to the good old days. The artist values family and relationships and writes in such a way that it makes me value mine as well. Warm, sentimental and leaves me feeling content and happy.

Ronda Jannett

Great CD!
I bought this CD for MYSELF for Mother's Day. My son will be graduating from high school next month. I plan to use the song "WHEN YOU'RE OLDER" on his slide presentation I will show at the open house.

Ron Garcia

It's like hearing from an old friend
Brian, it's great.

Listening, I feel like you're an old "army buddy" catching me up on all that's happened to you in the last 30 years. Your honey mustard voice, soft sweet melodies and moody nostalic lyrics are true you. Maybe it's so familiar because I played your Elkington Moss cassette for years after I got it. (I'll have to see if I still have it as a rare collectors item). Your devotion to your wife and your 3 angels is beautiful. The spirit of your music is the same as your old songs like "College Days" ("whats your name and whats your major") and that other song where you sang something about watching time slip away like water in a paper cup - but the quality of composition and sound is so much more mature (guess that happens after 30 years... as my son says, "d-u-h dad"). Your music has certainly evoked old memories and emotions and is truely beloved.

Stephen Daymond

It's all about life and emotions run high.
I do not think there are lyrics that have released the inner emotions so strongly and beautifully than the words of Brian Elkington in "A Mark in Time". At the end of a continuous play of the CD I feel everyone would know Brian Elkington as the sensitive, passionate and hugely talented guy that he obviously is to those that know him well.
The music just wants to make you listen and the lyrics take you into a very private world that could easily reflect your own private world. It is full of love, friendship and every facet of living that makes life so rich and special.This CD will certainly be a huge success.
