Brian Kremer bills himself as a crooner/songwriter, pointing with a Dean Martin wink to an elegant sound that plays somewhere between Bing Crosby and Hank Williams on the radio dial. Brian's polished, tender voice and guitar-picking charm are fully showcased on his new album "Echoes & Twirls."
Backed by the award-winning acoustic trio The Carper Family, he recorded live in a large, vaulted ceiling studio to analog tape just the way his heroes once did. The dozen country-tinged songs include standards like "Cold, Cold Heart" and "Don't Fence Me In," classic-influenced originals, and deeper cuts once made hits by a young Frank Sinatra. His resume includes Jazz Studies at Berklee College of Music, a classical Grammy nomination with the Dale Warland Singers, and a debut singer/songwriter record that AUSTIN.COM describes as "exquisitely pleasurable heartache." His performances include earnest interpretations from the American songbook, his own creations, a little whistling, and a lot of romance and heart break - all from a tall, well-dressed gentleman who genuinely fits the part. Brian performs regularly in Austin at the Historic Driskill Hotel Bar with touring plans ahead for 2015.
