Brian Smalley is a Florida guitar picker with ten crafty fingers, a variety of musical styles and multiple personalities. During his long musical career, Brian has worked to develop a motif that he describes as the “Acoustic Novel,” replete with plot and sub-text, providing a mental landscape that is something akin to aural musical theatre. First and foremost, these works are guitar albums, with the core purpose to produce pure original music; but there is something else here for those desiring to delve deeper.
Before “Chosen,” Brian's most recent recording, he’s recorded six projects. His acoustic novel “ChickensPigs” received the Best Florida Folk CD award from The Florida Times-Union in 2013. And thousands have enjoyed the tale of Painter Kellet, a homeless man in Key West, from the acoustic novel “Key.”
