Brian Wiltsey is a singer/songwriter living in Atlanta, GA. Known for his strong voice and knack for writing clever and catchy lyrics, Brian’s style can be described as sensitive artist to straight-up pop rocker. Whether performing solo or with his talented backing band, Brian Wiltsey never disappoints.
Music has meant so much to Wiltsey from the first time he heard a Beatles record as a little boy. “I can remember trying to always figure out if it was John or Paul singing lead before I even knew that the band had broken up 10 years before I was born”. To this day, I do not know where I would be without music.
With five solo records under his belt, his soon to be released “This Time Around”, puts Brian back on the map in the mainstream pop/rock world. It’s a deviation from his previous album “Lucky Ones”, which brought out the laid back, sensitive side of Brian. “This Time Around” was produced by Mark Kano, former lead singer of the popular 90’s band Athenaeum and is sure to be his most promising album yet with each song having the potential to be a commercial hit. There are no fillers on this record. Brian’s full intent was to team up with a hit songwriter and create songs that can take him to the next level and gain a larger audience. Mark Kano was a big influence in the early stages of Brian’s career. It made perfect sense to approach Kano years later to produce this record. Wiltsey says it was surreal and exciting to work with someone he’d been a fan of for years. The two were able to achieve the sound that Wiltsey has been striving for the last ten years. It also doesn’t hurt that the album also features Joey Barnes on drums (Daughtry) and Brandon Bush on keys (Train, Sugarland).
