It's All About Me
Raised in New England, with eclectic influences as both writer and singer, Brian Claflin coalesces diverse genres to form a rich mix of thoughtful & clever contemporary songwriting, and deeply soulful vocals.
"Brian Claflin demonstrates a supple voice." – Boston Globe
"Brian's songwriting is classic in all the best ways....a great talent..." - Kieran Kane (O'Kanes, Dead Reckoners)
“Fine music, delivered with brio and sensitivity... A day-brightener.” - Peter Schickele (PDQ Bach, NPR's Schickele Mix)
"Wonderful." - Cousin Kate, Sunday Morning, WZBC FM Boston
Brian rebelled against his hippie upbringing by briefly pursuing a Mad Men career in NYC, only to flee the scene and return to music, moving to Asheville, North Carolina to infuse his smart-ass folk-rock with elements of traditional Appalachian roots music.
With published songwriting credits in collaboration with Nanci Griffith and Adam Duritz, Claflin has performed at venues from The Bitter End and Greenwich Village Folk Festival in NYC, to the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, to the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, TN, to the Magnetic Theater in Asheville, NC.
As solo act, and as a duo with singing & songwriting partner Ellie Grace (and in other collaborations), Claflin has found a new home in the vibrant Asheville music scene.
