Brian Mackey / Bio

One might say it's hard to pinpoint exactly what genre NYC Artist Brian Mackey is. He is an honest, eclectic pop-infused rock, singer songwriter, with a twist of folkish Americana. But no matter what you label it as, it is heartfelt, witty and truly real. It's just Brian. Originally from a tin-roof town in Havana, Florida, where he spent his early days singing in the bathtub armed with dirty red glasses, and almost blowing up his room with chemistry sets, Brian knew right from the start what he wanted to: write songs. Many a day he played hooky from school just to listen to his favorite music in his room and studied the inserts, building his working mental library of writers, producers, and musicians.


MEDIA Brian has released 2 music videos, "Honest Love" and "Sunshower" from the songs on his album, Honest Love.
