Brian Hughes is now established as one of the UK’s finest ‘Modern Country’ singer/songwriters.
Born on the shores of Loch Lomond, Scotland, Brian has been in involved in music all his life, and a chance encounter with Mary Chapin Carpenter guided him towards country music, having had no connection with it previously. With her encouragement, he decided to follow a full time career in music and was fortunate to have his songwriting talents recognised by American publishing house AMG to whom he was signed. He subsequently played several US dates including a support slot for Phil Vassar in Nashville, Tennessee.
Brian has taken his band The LoneSharks out on the road for the last six years where they have converted a host of doubters as to whether country music can be ‘done properly’ here in the UK and thanks to him, more British artists are putting more of their own material in their sets.
