AUG 2014: “In one week, Brian Chartrand has more than done his bit to remind you, the gentle listening public, that the notion of a singer-songwriter sharing pieces of his land and maybe shards of other people’s lands through song is alive and well in Phoenix.”  Read the full article here.

JULY 2014: “I’ve had the pleasure of working with the very talented Brian Chartrand, an artist who puts no limit on the effort he might spend learning to understand and develop his craft.  He’s talented, humble, dedicated and really connected to his work emotionally.  He’s one of those artists where you don’t need to hear the record before you buy it, you know you’re going to be more than satisfied.”

JUNE 2014: “Brian Chartrand’s songs continue to impress.  Along with a team of the best musicians around, Chartrand adds unexpected shifts in melody and key to create deeply powerful songs that are challenging and yet comfortable, like your favorite pair of jeans.  I love his approach to songwriting, which seems effortless and sounds highly unique.  He is carving his own path- in a sea of great songwriters, he shines.”

PRESS for “The Voce Project”

“Your CD ‘The Voce Project’ is outstanding in every way: songwriting, execution, sonically, and packaging.”
Bob Corritore
“Those Low Down Blues” KJZZ and owner of Rhythm Room

“With ‘The Voce Project’ Brian Chartrand clearly defines his place among modern American songwriters like Ray LaMontagne and Ben Harper while clearly carving out a place all his own… a highly captivating record with outstanding production and the kind of diversity that makes a record last.”
Kimber Lanning
Owner, Stinkweeds



PRESS for “Sleeping With Giants”

“Listeners may be reminded of Nick Drake’s deep plucking style by the opening track, “Sweetly, Gently,” wherein listeners can actually hear Chartrand’s hands sliding across the strings in chord changes. Vocally, Chartrand sounds like a cross between Dave Matthews and Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, and his folky, winsome tenor blends nicely with the pastoral-sounding string solo and flute float-out that ends the song.” Read the full article here.
