Singer-songwriter Brian McKenzie is releasing a new 7-song EP with his latest project: Brian McKenzie and Always September!

Bruising From the Fall, a collection of introspective, gritty, singer-songwriter/rock, is a departure from McKenzie's previous Americana-tinged releases. Songs like "Higher Than This" and "Later On" feature soulful lyrics layered over edgy, emotional guitar work and a colossal rhythm section featuring drummers Bill Southerland (Kilgore) and Chris Piccirillo, plus bassists Brad O'Brien and Marty O'Brien (Kilgore).

The album was recorded at TRIAD studios in Warren, Rhode Island with Jon Gonsalves and mastered at Knack Mastering by Kim Rosen (Franz Ferdinand, Dashboard Confessional, Glen Phillips, Billy Bragg, Bonnie Raitt).

"Brian McKenzie has a big heart and it comes across in his music. A true gentleman with a beautiful voice, Brian is a wonderful artist." - Phil Madeira, Grammy award winning singer-songwriter

"Brian McKenzie is the real deal and an honest songwriter. He has it all. Great songs, great voice and the ability to connect on a visceral level. You owe it to yourself to check him out !"​ - Gary Mobley, Shubb Capos

“Brian's deep writing and rich voice combine for a unique and memorable musical experience.” - LR Baggs Acoustic Electronics
