Brian Smalley is a Florida guitar picker with ten crafty fingers and a variety of musical styles.
During his long musical career, Brian has worked to develop a motif that he describes as the “Acoustic Novel,” replete with plot and sub-text, providing a mental landscape that is something akin to aural musical theatre. First and foremost, these works are guitar albums, with the core purpose to produce pure original music; but there is something else here for those desiring to delve deeper.
His newest project CHOSEN boasts a gaggle of talented folks who help to tell this nearly eighty minute story. There’s something for everyone here, where there is a conscious effort to amalgamate many musical genres. Everything about this record is aimed toward the process of discovery, and there are many secrets hidden inside to unlock.
