Brian Koppenhaver

Contributing Writer - New Hampshire & Vermont, Reviews

Brian is a long time, local musician and sound/lighting technician. At the age of 10 he picked up a guitar and started to play, had a few bands in high school and here in the New Hampshire and Vermont areas, Brian has played in a country band, a 50's band and a Beatles cover band.

"I play guitar - predominantly acoustic and some electric - and I'm also a singer/songwriter, currently working in the studio on my first CD project. Over the years I have also worked as a lighting tech for a few bands locally, including Teaser and Aces and Eights out of Nashua, New Hampshire, while also doing sound for a Southern California punk band called Dirty Dogs and also worked with a few bands in Billings, Montana doing consultation and sound."

Brian's home studio is currently his practice grounds and a place to get a feel for his current music on tape/hard drive, and Vermont fiddler/guitarist Scott Campbell, of Randy Smith & His Band of Merry Men, is producing the CD at his studio, Windy Hills Studio in Barre, Vermont.

"There is so much talent - musically and artistically - in this area and it give me great pride to be a part of the team that wants to make everyone aware of this fact. I am truly honored to be a part of the Standing Room Only family."
