What they are saying: 

 

"Tom [Overby] and I went to see them, and they blew us away."

- Multi-Grammy winning singer-songwriter Lucinda Williams

 

"The Kenneth Brian Band is one of the most badass bands out there.  Their mixture of blues and rock reminds me of a cross between Lynyrd Skynyrd and Stevie Ray Vaughn.  The band’s powerful music combines lots of dirty guitar, bass and drums with relatable lyrics that reflect what life is really about." 

- Grammy-nominated musician Robert Randolph

 

"Just listened to 'With Lions'... and love it!! 

I like music that puts me in a contemplative state of mind, 

and the song 'Pueblo Angel' is the perfect salve 

at the end of a very long day!" 

-  Actor Walton Goggins ("The Hateful Eight", "Django Unchained")

 

“Kenneth Brian pushes country rock music to new boundaries.”

- Southern Oregon’s Mail Tribune

 

“Kenneth is an unbelievable guitar player, he’s a real gunslinger with great chops,

and he writes songs in that Guy Clark and Towns Van Zandt vein of songwriting.”

- Huntington Herald

 

“The past, present and future of Outlaw Country Music,”

- The Gainesville Sun

 

“As much good country soul as a pine-wood pew in a Baptist church come revival time.” 

- The Times of Acadiana

 

"Anyone who thinks that Drive-By Truckers has the dirty Southern rock music market cornered should check out The Kenneth Brian Band, which does an equally good job telling stories of triumph and woe on its debut, 'Welcome to Alabama'... it is evident that these musicians are not trying to cash in on the resurgence of Southern rock. These guys are for real; you can hear it in the music, which delivers the same feeling of pride of The Allman Brothers Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd."
