As a young boy, he enjoys singing with his family around campfires and remembers being involved with his brother’s wedding band playing the tambourine. While His friends were out getting into trouble.

Brian and his best friend spent time chatting on the telephone or sitting around making up silly song lyrics and melodies. During high school, Brian was quite shy and quiet and seldom told his parents about his involvement with various school activities.

His parents were not even aware that he sang in a class choir. While in high school, Brian chose his destiny without realizing he had done so.
