Briar Rabbit is a masterful songwriter who happens to be the nephew of BB King. Whether singing about heartbreak, following dreams, or historical fiction; his perspective coupled with his command of language is incredible. It's no surprise in 2013, he won an International Songwriting Award.
Along with his gift for writing critically acclaimed songs (Huffington Post, Chicago Tribune, American Songwriter) comes his ability to captivate his audience in a live setting. Armed only with a guitar, Briar Rabbit uses his strong, soulful tenor, and quick wit to deliver both a musically and emotionally dynamic performance.
Briar Rabbit has spent time all over. He was born in Metro-Detroit, moved to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music, spent four years in Chicago, then finally landed in back in Detroit. He is no stranger to touring and has been on the road for the better part of three years opening for such acts as Crystal Bowersox, Tyler Hilton, Jon McLaughlin, Cory Brannan and Kate Voegele. His music has taken him all the way to the Middle East, as well as festivals across the US and Canada.
