We're pleased to bring you the fourth installment of our video series, the American Roots Sessions, with special guest Brian Marquis.
For those of you who don't know Brian, he was the guitarist and vocalist for Therefore I am, a post-hardcore band from Boston, MA. After the band disbanded in 2009, Brian set out as a solo artist, plying his trade with music completely different than old band, electing instead to show off a softer, more soulful, and acoustic side of his musical prowess.
We met up with Brian at our studios at Bedrock in Echo Park, CA and were treated to two brand-new, exclusive songs -- "Hem & Haw" and "Young and Dumb" -- off his upcoming, debut album "Blood & Spirits," as well as a cover of the Iron & Wine classic "Half Moon." Check them out below!
He's currently in the UK performing on the Acoustic Basement Tour w/Geoff Rickly (Thursday), KOJI, and Rob Lynch. He will also be performing on every date of this summer's Vans Warped Tour throughout the USA.
His album "Blood & Spirits" is set to be released on May 13th on Equal Vision Records. You can pre-order it here: http://merchnow.com/catalogs/brian-marquis
