“Magical…an early contender for one the best albums of the year.” - The Washington Post
I’ve been obsessed with writing songs and the guitar for as long as I can remember. I married young, am an adoptive parent, and the son of a preacher man. I toured a lot for a few years and put out a few records as Luke Brindley, Brindley Brothers, and Native Run. I never quite fit into (or cared about) “the business” so I’m kind of making my own rules now. I grew up in New Jersey but live outside of Washington, DC. Along with my brothers, I run Jammin Java in Vienna,VA - one of the Top 100 Clubs In The World.
The songs have a definite focus on the lyrics and hopefully offer a kind of deeper perspective. I tend to gravitate toward the larger worldview questions such as, Why are we here? What are we supposed to be doing? What does it mean to know another person? To love someone?
In 2010 I started a new trio and put everything I had into it until Summer 2012, when the other two members broke off on their own. My family and I had banked everything on this project so, needless to say, I was pretty discouraged! It’s kind of one of those music business horror stories you think will never happen to you, but it does.
We wrote with some of the biggest names in Nashville and secured a great publishing deal but, creatively, I had been getting kind of frustrated. When the band broke up, I felt like I had been set free in a way. In a burst of creativity, I wrote 40+ songs in the fall/winter of 2012. In 2013, I released a song every week (52 songs) with producer Chip Johnson and some talented special guests. You can download them here: http://bit.ly/1dVeQPL or on iTunes.
Currently, I'm writing a lot with other people, writing/recording my next projects to be released in 2014, raising a family, and running one of the best clubs in the country!
