And now some words from my friend and long-time collaborator Andreas Aleman, who has given me moral support and offered his technical expertise throughout this entire project.
“I have known and collaborated with Brian Hobbs for over 20 years now and I’ve always known that he was a true storyteller, and everyone can now hear that with his new album ”Genesis of Who I Am”.
The title track is a beautiful, wistful tribute to his family and childhood in North Carolina. The album contains many well-written and moving songs. In addition to the title track, my favorites are “Conversation with Greta”, “Time Remembers” and “Willoughby”. The album is both sentimental and bittersweet, but Brian also infuses a little humor with songs like “I Don’t Mind” and “All I’m Askin’ For”. The music is organic and genuine and Brian’s voice ties everything together to create an enjoyable music experience.”
