Brian Dolzani

Brian Dolzani is a critically-acclaimed singer/songwriter based in Fairfield, CT. He writes deeply personal songs about relationship, family, faith and redemption, fear and dissatisfaction. ‘I lost my father in a car accident when I was fifteen,’ Brian reflects, ‘and my purpose was cast. I was left with a guitar in my hand, and a determination to discover and redeem what I thought was lost to me to a universe that could be so giving and so cruel. The Examined Life is what I pursue through my songs.’’ It’s this combination of reverence and defiance that makes Brian’s music so interesting and relatable.

Brian is releasing his 6th independent record titled ‘If I Don’t Speak A Word…’, and has shared shows with Peter Case, The Subdudes, Frank Turner, William Elliot Whitmore, Caravan of Thieves, and many more. Brian performs up and down the East Coast from Vermont to Atlanta, captivating audiences with his vulnerable and accessible songwriting and honest and heartfelt performances.

“[Brian] exudes the melodic charm and trebly vocal hitches of Jules Shear, and the heartbreaking warmth and intriguing lyrical turns of Freedy Johnston.”
– Cincinnati City Beat

“A singular and insightful voice.”
