"Music and ministry have been very influential components of my upbringing. At an early age I learned the impact music has on people. As I grew into my teenage years I discovered the power of words set to melody and began to cultivate my own musical tastes. I recognized how music can be used to promote good things or be used as a tool of destruction. My passion is to produce music and worship experiences that are life-changing; leading people to the cross of Jesus Christ."

Brian's favorite verse is John 15:5, "I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you wil bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing."
