CJ visits with recording artist and FMWA featured New Artist of the Month, Brian Minshew.

Born in Chattanooga, TN in 1977, Brian Minshew began singing at a very early age.  He grew up listening to his mother sing around the house and his father’s band on TV.  He became serious about his own talent during his senior year in high school and received a scholarship in music from the University of Tennessee, where he graduated with a degree in Vocal Education.

While honing his skills and developing his musical career, Brian took the opportunity to sing open mike nights while living in Nashville almost every weekend.  He would join in with different artists and bands as a journeyman musician just to get the chance to play live gigs.  He enjoyed singing karaoke, as well, and one of his favorite artists to emanate was Vince Gill.  Brian loves country songs, but his trademark is his ability to deliver them with a distinct rhythm and blues style. 

As a working musician, Brian has sung with the “The River Band” in Chattanooga at the annual Riverbend Festival, as well as with “Sterchi Brothers Band” and “The Core.”  A fixture at the entertainment restaurant, The Station House, since 2002, Brian enjoys singing amidst the history of the Chattanooga Choo-Choo. 

Some of Brian’s most recent work includes an appearance on Michelle Holder’s CD, Heartfelt, on which he accompanies her in the duet, “Love Until.”  The song has garnered radio airplay in Austria and throughout Europe.  In 2005, Brian teamed up with former Station House performer, Kesia King, to win “Best Duet of the Year” for the Chattanooga area.
