    Default brian vander ark

    hey all.

    any brian vander ark fans here? if you've not heard of him he's the lead singer of the 90's band, 'the verve pipe' (insert joke here about 'the freshmen'). whether you like that tune or not, his solo stuff is amazing. just got his new cd in the mail the other day and cannot stop spinning it. just when i gave up hope on new music, along comes this gem.

    check out some of his stuff at www.myspace.com/brianvanderark

    enjoy!

    one neat thing about brian is his approach to the whole music industry. he plans on staying label-free after his fallout with RCA. he financed his last record by playing over 80 shows for his fans in their backyard...called it his 'lawn-chairs and living rooms tour'.

    great guy, great music.

    The verve pipe is from the Grand Rapids area, I remember these guys when they first started playing in a local restaurant. I still see Brian around town.

    Let's hope this goes over better than the thread you started on the actual Verve Pipe!

    He played for us on the 'Lawn Chairs... Tour'. Our singer, who is a huge fan, hired him. He let Sam write up the set-list and played everything... then Sam realized he forgot one tune he wanted to hear so Brian got his guitar back out and played while we tore down! GREAT guy and my first time hearing him... very impressive.

    The extra cool part is that we played with him on one of his songs and that led to an impromptu jam of "Ice Cream Man"!... ("There's a lil' bit of VH in everybody", right?!)

    Sings like a bird. Rocks like a pig.
