He graduated from the University of Minnesota MFA program in Poetry, and went on to spend several years on the Songwriting faculty at McNally Smith College of Music in St Paul. He has released a number of books and records, most recently Amoratorium (Paper Darts Press), The Stuntman (Milkweed Editions) and Jeremiad (Hymie’s Vintage Records). Brian is now a full-time touring folksinger, traveling nationally and internationally with his Twin Cities-based folk band The Family Trade.
