Building Puzzles Out of Sand
Brian Mullins, a singer/songwriter from Philadelphia, PA is a musician through and through. If he's not strumming a guitar, behind the drums, or writing lyrics, he can be found experimenting with rhythm and beat to create compelling melodic compositions that transcend the common chord. Brian has served as drummer and vocalist for his early music projects. While the excitement of playing to a crowd and collaborating with other musicians was fulfilling, Brian wanted to take a new direction with his music. He continued to work privately and hone his sound, bringing the chemistry of his extraordinary 'percussion-like' finger stylings and rich, soulful vocals together; he decided to go out on his own as a singer/songwriter. His fierce vocal presence on stage captures your attention sending your senses into a intoxicated state. 'I try to share pieces of myself and my experiences with my audience and communicate it through music and lyrics. I have something to give to each and every one of them.' The release of his debut album 'Building Puzzles Out of Sand' is a harmonious fusion of fortitude and fire and a hearty dose of raw passion. Brian has blended a broad mix of musical styles into a creative cocktail that goes down smooth and leaves you wanting more. Tracks like 'Energy', '9th St. Blues Breakdown', and 'Tragedy' project his soulful vocal angst blended with a sincere twist of bittersweet intensity.
