This musical duo met by chance during one of Brian’s shows in East Texas in 2013 when Kj happened to be in nearby Shreveport, where she was conducting a seminar in educational songwriting. Later that year, when she came down to Texas on a trip, they had a chance to play a few songs together and things clicked. Brian has been playing professionally since high school, and his writing has drawn favorable comparisons to that of Woody Guthrie, Rodney Crowell, and Jim Croce. He has performed at the Kerrville Folk Festival, Gruene Hall, and many other prestigious venues, and he tours regularly in the UK. He and his wife own Berkalin Records, with a roster that features many well-respected singer-songwriters.

Kj has performed across the US and the UK as a solo artist and along with other artists including Steve Weisberg, Ted Vigil, and Dougie MacLean at noted venues and festivals including the Wheeler Opera House in Aspen and in Scotland at the Killin Music Festival. Kj is a recognized educator, trainer and multi-instrumentalist, providing keynotes, workshops, and residencies and she has mentored hundreds of teachers and students. Kj has been awarded several distinguished honors for educational songwriting from the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, National Agriculture in the Classroom (NAITC) and The Visionary Award from Danville’s Child Development Center.
