“American Courage” is his first album release in over 10 years. The album began writing itself during the COVID-19 pandemic “American Courage is a shot at reconciliation. It pushes back against hopelessness brought on by the pandemic and relentless social injustice. The core idea of this project is that love ain't easy but it's everything. I can't imagine a world without the promise of America.” States Brian. Seymour’s forthcoming LP American Courage is a career-defining moment of honest songwriting and powerful performances.
His live performances have lit up intimate venues from Boston to Atlanta as Seymour shifted time to family, grad school and art history education. Along the way, Seymour landed key placements in film and TV, as well as covers by diverse artists including Dan Tyminski of Union Station, party band Cowboy Mouth, and Philly punks Foxy Contin. Don’t get him started telling stories how he turned a pair of shows at the Viper Room into a lucrative national TV ad campaign, or about his month-long residency playing Tom Waits covers at the House of Blues in Shanghai.
