PROFILE

Brian Spence is no stranger to rock’n’roll, having played in numerous bands since his schooldays in Edinbuurgh. Having had some success in his teens with pop band Bilbo Buggins  and later with the duo Chisholm and Spence. Probably one of the best AOR/Hard-Pop albums of ALL TIME! Every song is a winner, there are no fillers here. One listen to this masterpiece and you’ll be singing the tunes for months!

Highlights are “Heart it from the Heart” and “Will You Never be My Friend”, both of them indiscutible classics from Rock clubs all around the world. The production by Ed Stasium is pure AOR heaven, with all instruments plus Brian’s voice fitting perfectly to make “Brothers” a musical journey you’ll never forget. A 1986 classic album which deserved far more success.

 As far as I know Brian Spence only had one further album called Reputation released in 1988, and also wrote and produced 4 tracks for Michael Ball on his one and only venture into pop/rock with the album One Careful Owner album in 1994. If you like artists like Lou Gramm, Rick Springfield and Rick Matthews, this one is definetely for you!!!
