Folk pop stylist who performed as duo The Paper Bubble with Terry Brake in the early 19070s, and on record were backed by The Strawbs.

Being Human Being is a classic piece of English whimsy, jaunty upbeat life affirming; Working Man a Lindisfarne folk rocking style ‘northern’ paean to English working class; I’m Laughing another flute driven harmony laden piece of whimsy.

Brian continued to write songs through 1970s and 1980s, releasing several solo albums. He also penned English lyrics to toplines for a couple of Indian pop music LPs during the mid 1980s. Brian once appeared as a TV extra performing his own song Saints and Sinners for a TV drama which required “musician plays in the background”.

Several of the songs Brian wrote with Terry in Paper Bubble were adapted for a musical in 2019 and staged at Severn Arts Theatre, Shrewsbury. Brian is today a published author.
