Brick Brisco
Brick Brisco
Brick Briscoe is a composer, filmmaker and photographer. He sometimes writes things that have nothing to do with those things as well.
Odds are you will cross his path sometime.

Point to the Horizon is his 7th LP and his fifth as a solo artist. He also records with the band Tall Young Men.

Journalist Cindy Lamb sums it up, "To say Briscoe is passionate about his creative process would be selling him and his collaborators short. Taking on the task of painting sound and song with the most electric, deep colors available isn’t something that just anyone should try at home but after testing the tides of both Los Angeles and New York City, he found both solace and fire in the soft rolling plains of Indiana. Home.
This soft-spoken yet hard-driven man still claims to be a fan first and foremost. Days of post-punk vinyl and the emerging indie film wave, CBGB’s, Wire, The Beautiful South, Gang of Four, The Jam, Stan Ridgway have left an indelible mark. Those passing by the studio will also hear Mahler, Monk and the Mekons. His tastes are as eclectic as his releases."

In the recent past Brick has produced Molly D, Matt Sullivan, Mike Adams, Machines from Birth, Denise Dill, Orenda, Namaste, dozens of commercials, a few EPKs for bands, photographed a slew of bands and clients and made a few feature documentary films.

if you find yourself lost, on the mean streets of Anywhere, USA and are seeking a warm place to record and a cool glass of bourbon, Brick’s waiting on the porch. Although we hear he's now on wine and scotch these days.

“Nashville by way of Columbus, Ohio rocker Blinn settles into a steady rock groove on her latest release. The hooks that have always anchored her songs are as strong as ever, bursting with an infectious spirit. ” - Mayer Danzig, Twangville

Armed with an abused Telecaster, a belt of harmonicas, a new record titled Better Than Gold, she has no plans to stop crisscrossing the USA anytime soon. 2018's Better Than Gold is the product of a woman who is smarter and stronger than she ever has been. Some of the songs were written alone, in her room, on her porch, or in her kitchen. Produced, engineered and mixed by longtime friend and fan Mike Landolt (O.A.R, Maroon 5).

The first single, "Softer Side", is an upbeat soul-rock number co-written with Will Newsome. "Dance With The One (Who Brought You Here)" came from an afternoon-turned-evening session with her then-roommate singer/songwriter K Phillips in which a first draft was pounded out on one of K's vintage typewriters.

2014 saw Blinn release Lovers In The Dust on Curry House Records. The album features the handiwork of seasoned producer/engineer Mike Landolt (Maroon 5, Blues Traveler, O.A.R.). Along with her then backing band The Handsome Machine, the disc was rounded out with guest appearances by Aaron Lee Tasjan, Devon Allman, Andy Harrison (Howlin' Maggie) and Angela Perley (Angela Perley & The Howlin' Moons). “I like to think of this album as having a little something for everybody,” says Blinn, “It definitely has the rockers but it also has some more intimate songs as well as a couple of just plain fun ones that reach towards a more pop sound.” Her song "Sexy Mess" spent 8 straight days on the airwaves of Columbus, OH's CD102.5FM in their "Top 5 Most Requested Songs of the Day" playlist, including 3 straight days at #1. Another tune titled "Lovers in the Dust" was featured on the soundtrack for the full-length feature film Black Windows (Wanderlust Films/Devil Town Productions/Gravitas Ventures).

The following 2 years saw Blinn and her band tour nationally, playing over 150+ shows a year everywhere from New York to Wyoming and back. She's shared the stage with names including Blues Traveler, The Family Stone, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers, Royal Southern Brotherhood, Devon Allman, The Clarks and Jim Lauderdale to name a few.

She has since relocated to Nashville, TN to continue her musical pursuits and record a new record. Blinn's new release (currently untitled) will see the light of day in fall of 2017 and she plans to continue to tour relentlessly.
