Brian’s latest album benefits our men and women in the military, a cause he is very much involved in. 

“I have always had a special spot in my heart for military veterans. I feel they have always been forgotten in our world and taken for granted. I remember seeing homeless Vietnam veterans living in the subway and streets of New York City, where I grew up in the 70s,” Brian said. “It was a disgraceful site because, at that time, no one seemed to care about veterans. So, I wanted to draw as much attention as I could to veterans' needs, and what better way than through music? I also wanted an exceptionally reliable benefit to donate to, so I did a lot of research and decided on the Fisher House Foundation.”
