Brian Konzelman

His experience in the music and recording industry spans four decades of writing, performing, recording, and producing music that has touched the lives of millions.


ROOTS..... From earliest childhood, a passion for music led to years of classical as well as contemporary music training. At thirteen, Brian was performing on TV as a guitarist with THE BUMBLE BEATS. High school years found him busy writing, performing and recording music for custom records, the theater and television, as well as touring and recording with THE NEW JAZZ ENSEMBLE. Classical music was a natural for Brian as well. He performed and toured with numerous orchestras throughout the northwest featured as a solo violinist, served as concertmaster, as well as composing and guest conducting his own orchestral scores.

MUSICIAN..... The decade of the 1970s found Brian and his wife, Sherry, on the road with their music. In those very early days of what is now known as Contemporary Christian Music, Brian was there, writing, recording, producing, and touring with THE NEW CREATION SINGERS . One of the first SPARROW RECORDS artists, The New Creation Singers are credited as the first internationally known contemporary praise and worship music group. Many of the scripture songs and choruses that have been popular in contemporary Christian music originated from their seven albums.

Record sales exploded as Brian toured and recorded with the group for nine years, doing concerts with Christian music legends B.J. THOMAS, ANDRE CROUCH, KEITH GREEN, PAT BOONE, BARRY MCGUIRE, 2ND CHAPTER OF ACTS, and hosts of other artists. Record sales overseas led to multiple concert tours of Europe, Scandinavia, and Great Britain, appearances on the BBC, and at the 1972 OLYMPIC GAMES in Munich, Germany. 1975-1976 was spent doing an extended yearlong worldwide tour including concerts, radio and television appearances in Europe, Israel, Iran, New Zealand, Singapore, Japan, and Hawaii. An artist/producer contract with SPARROW RECORDS followed, and Brian began to branch out as producer and writer for other artists.
