Brian Simpson

Keyboardist and composer Brian Simpson is a sought-after studio musician and musical director who has regularly crossed from jazz to pop and R&B. Raised in Gurnee, Illinois, Simpson grew up in a musical family and eventually earned his music degree from Northern Illinois University. After graduating, he relocated to Los Angeles, where he found work performing with such artists as Boney James, Norman Brown, and Everette Harp. This led to stints touring with a variety of pop artists, including Janet Jackson and Teena Marie. In 1991, Simpson garnered more attention after co-writing Surface's number one hit R&B single "The First Time." As a studio musician, Simpson has worked with such artists as Stanley Clarke, Kirk Whalum, and George Duke. Since the late '90s, he has acted as musical director for saxophonist Dave Koz. Simpson has released several albums as a solo artist, including 1995's Closer Still and 2005's It's All Good. Two years later, Simpson delivered the album Above the Clouds. In 2013, Simpson released his fifth solo album, Just What You Need, featuring guest appearances by Gerald Albright, Marc Antoine, Elan Trotman, and Jonathan Butler. ~ Matt Collar, Rovi

The perfect music for a romantic evening or even until the early morning, set's the mood ,laying in front of a fire place, holding each other in a sensual embrace, as the music caressing your very soul, arousing the emotions of musical bliss, taking you both on a voyage of enjoyment, sharing the joy of music
HEY Brain great smooth sound....... . .
Heard Brian's unique style on wnua smooth jazz Chicago in the late 90's . He is a master keyboard artist...
if Mr.Simpson is not in your collection, you need to put him in there ASAP, o.k.
Saw this man for the first time at a Dave Kozz concert with all of his special guests and omg, this man with the rest put on a terrific show. Tisdale, Culbertson, M. Meadows, P. Taylor, Simpson, and so many others ....was blown away by so many on one stage in San Diego. It was" the" best jazz concert ever!!! Had no knowledge W. Tisdale was a jazz musician.
