Multiplatinum-selling, singer/songwriter and highly regarded radio and television presenter, Doctor of Letters from Ulster University, and a published author, not surprisingly for a lyricist of his calibre.

Brian maintains that music is the language of emotion, and after his years working with Van Morrison he prizes the live gig above all else. Seeing and hearing is the only way to experience this national treasure.
