This Is My Story
and I'm Sticking To It!
BrianT & The Sinister Hearts
"If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!" Robert The Bruce
Sault Ste Marie born, singer/songwriter, Brian Tremblay decided it was time to dust off his guitar and pull out his back catalogue of original songs and put them out there again. In 2013 he walked away from his music after becoming frustrated with the local bar scene. It wasn't until he encountered some famous musicians that he rediscovered his music from a new viewpoint.
Brian had the opportunity to create a program for a new local Internet radio station called The Borderline. His show is called "Rock N Roll Heaven" and in it he interviews some icons in the Canadian music industry. After hearing their words on how they came up in the business and their thoughts on songwriting and music, Tremblay was inspired and picked up the guitar again. He began writing and decided to explore some past tracks that he recorded but didn't do anything with. He brought them back into the daylight and found there were some shining gems amongst the detritus.
Although Brian does the majority of his performances as an acoustic duo with his wife Lynn, The Sinister Hearts are available for those performances needing more presence.
Brian Tremblay's music blends folk, country rock and blues with lyrics drawn from the wellspring of childhood memories, love, happiness and statements on today's world. Although influenced by the likes of The Beatles, The Monkees, Bruce Springsteen, Townes Van Zandt, Blaze Foley, Tom Petty, Steve Earle, Guy Clark and Billy Joe Shaver the weight of their music was organic. It's these artists' storytelling abilities that he was drawn to. Brian also has other outlets of creative expression that he feels cross over into his music. He's been successful at photography and has started to paint and draw in a variety of mediums. It's this imagery that he combines into his songs.
