An acoustic-based rock musician hailing from the ‘sticks’ of New Jersey, Brian Colburn has been a part of the NJ music scene for the past decade; fronting two original bands, along with spending a year in NJ’s cover circuit. He has opened for many national acts, including the Plain White T’s - whose hit song ‘Hey There Delilah’ helped bring acoustic pop-rock back into the mainstream.
With influences ranging from: 90''s rock acts such as Sister Hazel and Toad The Wet Sprocket, recent acoustic-rock mainstays such as Jack Johnson and Donavon Frankenreiter, and timeless rockers from John Hiatt to Tom Petty - Colburn’s songwriting process is grounded in soaring melodies and memorable hooks, giving his music a cross-genre appeal. ‘Literal Fiction,’ Colburn’s debut solo effort, offers a unique blend of those influences, making for an original sound that’s sure to please fans of all genres.
Literal Fiction includes 10 tracks, ranging from upbeat sing-alongs (‘Summer Song’ and ‘Makin Rounds’) and jam-oriented rock (‘Beyond the Grey’ and ‘A Matter of Time’); to instrumental explorations (‘Daydream’) and more laid back fare (‘Sometime, Someway’ and ‘Once Again’). Two of the tracks include a guest appearance by fellow Jersey artist DC Slater, who brings a mellow-groove to the disc’s 3rd track (‘Rewind’) and injects the disc’s title track with a shot of blues-electricity.
‘Literal Fiction’ can be easily summed up through Colburn''s own lyrics in ‘Rewind’: "Just sit back, relax, and let the music be your friend."
