Brian Blain (folk, blues)

Brian Blain, born in rural Quebec and active in the music scene for forty years, possesses a “northern” style that gives him a cool edge that just can’t be found in any other artist. His easy blend of folk and blues is a running commentary on life as he sees it.  Since arriving in Toronto in 1990, Brian Blain has been a quiet, enduring presence in Canadian roots music. He has worked in just about every aspect of the music business on stage and behind the scenes as a recording artist, sideman, producer, manager, music writer/editor, publisher, director and tireless promoter of Canadian blues artists.  Ever since his 1973 recording, "The Story of the Magic Pick", Brian has been providing his wry commentary on the music scene. “Now here’s something you don’t hear every day: a bluesman singin’ the blues about how lousy the blues singin’ business is these days” - Jeffrey Morgan, DETROIT METRO TIMES - Brian Blain
