Brian L. Wells has spent his life mixing music into a rich tapestry of storytelling that shows and tells us how we share experiences inspired by the many forms of love. He was born and raised in North East, MD and spent his professional career balancing an interest in chemistry and a powerful desire for self-expression and performance as a certified ballroom and Latin dance instructor. Throughout his career as a dance instructor and DJ, Brian has developed a sixth sense for the right mix of soothing love ballads, playful pop tunes and toe-tapping country beats that keep the crowds dancing.
His musical journey began in 1988, when he studied voice lessons to prepare for a show and learned about the physics behind singing from a choir director. Brian expanded his career into singing and songwriting in 2006, following a turning point in his personal life that sent him on a trip to Nashville to see the heart of country music. While sitting on a bar stool in Tootsies bar, he heard a singer playing "For the Good Times" by Kris Kristofferson, a song that showed him the magnitude of lost love that many share and he knew then that he too wanted to write songs to move people.
Using songwriting tips learned from experts at Songposium in Nashville, Brian wrote "Hold Me Close While We Dance", a song that won #1 love song at a song competition at the Alabama Music Hall of Fame. His song “Brother How I Miss You”, received a honorable mention award in a 2012 National Song of the Year Competition and reached #5 on Australian Christian Indie charts in February 2012. His songs have had successful chart runs on indie song charts and in international song markets.
Brian has been awarded with recognition for his songwriting, including:
Recently, Brian has been delighting Mid-Atlantic audiences as an accomplished vocalist and guitarist, performing his own music and other popular tunes at local venues including the Grand Opera House in Wilmington, DE.
With his songwriting, Brian has created a rich alchemy of story and sounds, drawing on a vast knowledge of dance music and personal experiences of pain, loss, joy and love to inspire hope along the journey of life we all share.
His songs touch on love in its varied expressions, spiritual and patriotic themes and playful humor that flirt with the audience’s senses.
Whether it’s the soulful wish of parental love in “My Best Friend”, the soothing balm of “Everything’s Going to Be Alright” or the flirty promises of “Couch Talkin’”and "Hold Me Close While We Dance", there is consistent thread through all of Brian’s songs of unfailing Hope – in God, true love, kindness, overcoming loss and success in romance.
His songs, “I'll Follow His Light", "This is Our Great Country” and "If I Could Die a Hero" further show his love of God and of being an American, his admiration and respect for all who have fought and continue to fight for freedom and this country.
Brian’s purpose as a singer/songwriter is to inspire and move his audience, with confidence that his music will fall on the right ears at the right time so that he can make a living sharing his passionate love of music.
