Brian Webb, Friday, September 21, 8pm


Born and raised in Atlanta to a very large family, Brian began performing out about 13 years ago at Eddie's Attic in Decatur. After a sucessful stint in his southern home, he moved himself and his cute little dog up to Massachusetts, with no intention of a career in music. After awhile, he just couldn't help himself. He met many great local musicians in the Somerville and Cambridge area. Rachel McCartney was an early supporter of Brian's music. She and Brian performed all around the town winning hearts and fans. He began playing quite frequently at Club Passim and quickly became a club favorite. Brian realized that he needed an updated record to sell. He put together "The Evolving CD" that reached the hands of local college station WERS. The station played his song "Tobias" until he asked them to please stop and play another song from the CD, his friends were sick of that song about a crack head. Brian also took to playing in subway. A favorite spot was in the Davis Square T stop in Somerville, MA. Brian spread his music all over the commuters and they threw him change as they awaited their trains. Many folks thought the shabbily dress singer was homeless and was raising funds to help feed his scampy little dog. He soon learned that he could make just as much money busking in the subways as he did at his waiter gig, so he quit and became a full time performer. Since moving North, Brian has released one studio album ("Broken Folk") and a live record ("Live"). He has plans to record a new studio album and plays out every once in awhile with his band of the best local players in the Boston area, including Austin Nevins, currently touring with Josh Ritter. He will also do the occasional show in Atlanta and California. Brian currently lives in Warwick, RI, where he spends his time learning about polynomials, woodworking, playing PS2 and perfecting his banjo skills.
