Brian L. Wells Debut CD “This is Our Great Country”
Brian L. Wells embodies our American ideals – freedom, honor, happiness and the rebel spirit embodied in Country music. His debut album “This Is Our Great Country,” combines songs about family, love, and patriotism into an album worth hearing.
Brian has been singing and performing in live concerts and theater productions on the East Coast since 1988. He expanded his career into songwriting in 2006, following a turning point in his personal life that sent him on a trip to Nashville to see the heart of Country music. Since then, Brian has enjoyed successes with "Hold Me Close While We Dance", a song that won #1 love song at a song competition at the Alabama Music Hall of Fame and “Brother How I Miss You”, which received an honorable mention award in a 2012 National Song of the Year Competition. Recently, he has begun performing his original songs and other popular tunes at local venues including the Grand Opera House in Wilmington, DE.
From the guitar-driven, patriotic title track, This Is Our Great Country that builds on the longing for unity and support for our soldiers and our fallen heroes – to the sensual love ballad Hold Me Close While We Dance, this album ranges from Country to Rock ‘n Roll to swinging melodies. Note that toe-tapping drums in the opening chords of Couch Talkin’ generates anticipation akin to the excitement of a new relationship and is sure to be a favorite.
Brian draws on his own life experiences and struggles for his songwriting, most notable in the heartfelt duet in My Best Friend, featuring Brian Wells and Olivia Rubini (vocals). From high notes, symbols and acoustic guitar at the start to emotional pleas throughout the lyrics, My Best Friend pulls on the heartstrings of anyone who loves and has ever been loved by a child. Childhood memories featuring the strong bonds of family expressed through the Rock ‘n Roll melody of My Brothers and Me is reminiscent of porch-sitting, tall tales that are legendary in every family. Though past the statute of limitations, there’s still bound to be trouble from Mama afterward!
What fans are saying:
“The beautiful lyrics touched my heart and made me cry”, “these songs are rich with meaning and messages for all of us” and “every time I listen to a song, I find a nuance that inspires hope”.
With somber, acoustic guitar blended with the determined keyboard percussion on Brother, How I Miss You, Brian tells a tale of grief yet determination to forge ahead and see a bright future returning after the loss of a loved one. Brian L. Wells speaks into music the tragedies and hopes of people of all ages and walks of life, offering a path to rebuild greatness from loss. This album is about embracing family bonds, honoring our heroes and enjoying enduring relationships. Filled to the brim with the American ideals of genuine gratitude for life, love and liberty, it is an album well-worth hearing and sharing.
