Beautiful Distractions

With the birth of his youngest daughter, Brian took a year off of work to provide child care as a stay home dad. During this special time with Layla and self-reflection, Brian began writing the songs for Beautiful Distractions. With a restricted budget and the desire to release this material, he recorded and produced all the songs on a mini iPad in his home in Kalamazoo. Brian composes a heart-felt album with it's running theme of how our own actions of love and compassion without conditions, can make for a better life and world.
