Brian hasn't been doing much solo work of late, but focusing on more collaboration work. The internet can be a strange and wonderful thing - and one of it's many varied uses is to bring musicians together. Though CD Number Three will eventually come out, these pages are devoted to the collaborations and works in progress. Enjoy!

The pictures to the left are people and places along the way, enjoy!

Song I'll Dream of You
Completed 12/21/03
Location: Graham, Washington

Lyrics: Melody Mercado
Vocals: Brian McAdams
Music Written & Performed: Brian McAdams

Song Info: Brian came upon these lyrics while checking out some new collaboration sites, and was inspired to put them to music. This being a very personal song to the writer, it was important to get it "right". A very melancholy song, it's the first time Brian tried this type of singing, veering away from his normal bluesy tones.

Song Info: We were excited to go to stay with Paul and his family in Germany, as he's one of our favorite online musicians (and people!). In addition to getting to meet him and spend the weekend at his new home, Brian & Paul wrote this song in just one day.
Song Off the Beaten Track

Lyrics Written & Performed: Paul Townsend
Music Written & Performed: Brian McAdams

Song Info: Brian's first collaboration with Paul, long awaited (Paul isn't fond of blues). Wonderfully smooth song mixing Paul's vocals with Brian's guitar. I may be biased - but I say winning combo every time!
