Brian Stai is an Americana Folk singer and songwriter based out of the Pacific Northwest. With an emphasis on lyrically based songwriting and live performances, Brian mergers the tradition of folk music into his own experience and perspective. His lyrics are honest, authentic, and his storytelling ability will paint a picture for you to step into.
Born and raised in Iowa, life has brought him to currently reside in Spokane, WA. Playing guitar since he was 12, but only songwriting for the past, small-handful, of years. His musical influences include: Townes Van Zandt, John Prine, (Early) Bob Dylan, The Avett Brothers, and many more Folk and Americana troubadours. His live performances are the canvas in which his stories are really told. His old-time finger picking and beat up vintage Gibson are the paint brushes for these stories. You’ll feel a tug between the old and new during his live sets and his kickdrum and tambourine will keep your foot tapping the whole way through.
