I am Brian Eade. I was born in Bexley, Kent, grew up in Southend-on-Sea in Essex and I am now lucky enough to be living happily in North Norfolk. I have been playing Guitar in and around North Norfolk and far beyond for many years!
I've been writing songs since even before I picked up my first guitar in 1980. Although I have always been an enthusiastic guitar player, I've never been particular interested in painstakingly learning other people's pieces. (with the exception of classical solo guitar pieces, since I've been teaching !!). I've always played my own versions instead, or written my own pieces. This is possibly just laziness but it's what i've always done !!
My influences are mainly songwriters and I have always been particularly drawn to good lyrics.
Folk songwriters like Ralph McTell, Bert Jansch and Richard Thompson, traditional music from composers like Turlough O'Carolan and John Dowland, as well as rock musicians, Roger Waters, Pete Townshend, Robbie Robertson, Oh and and not forgetting Neil Young of course !!
