"Brian McKenzie is an old soul in the body of a modern day singer songwriter. He draws on influences that range from the velvety smooth crooners of the 1940s and 50s, the heart and angst of early country, to the power and energy of rockabilly and rock n' roll. He adds to that a modern sound, rich with melodic lines and introspection, and blends the ingredients into a cohesive, well mixed drink that you can easily get lost in. Brian's music has been described as the combination of Chris Isaak, Edwin McCain and the Mavericks".

"Brian McKenzie has a big heart and it comes across in his music.  A true gentleman with a beautiful voice, Brian is a wonderful artist." - Phil Madeira

"Brian McKenzie is the real deal and an honest songwriter. He has it all. Great songs, great voice and the ability to connect on a visceral level. You owe it to yourself to check him out ! "​ - Gary Mobley, Shubb Capos

“Brian's deep writing and rich voice combine for a unique and memorable musical experience.”
- LR Baggs Acoustic Electronics

"Not only does he write tremendous songs (his brand new CD, "Looking Over Yesterday," is consistently excellent and beautifully produced) but McKenzie has an appreciation for classic American music. For every nod to Chris Isaak or the Mavericks, McKenzie offers a subtle and melodic tip of the hat to Marty Robbins or Gordon Lightfoot." - Rick Koster​ (The Day Connecticut)

Phil Madeira Appears on Looking Over Yesterday 

There are some great players on "Looking Over Yesterday". I had the good fortune of having the talented Phil Madeira play on 2 of my tracks. Phil is a Nashville based, widely respected singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist. He has worked with everyone from Emmylou Harris to Ricky Skaggs and recently won a Grammy for his co-write with The Civil Wars. Phil plays slide on "Getting Along" and a beautiful, melancholy accordion line on "Holding On". Check out each song under the Music Tab.
