Brian McKnight is a Jack of all Trades in the music world. The American singer-songwriter, arranger, producer, and R&B musician is also a multi-instrumentalist who is excels at eight instruments including piano, guitar, bass guitar, percussion, trombone, tuba, flugelhorn and trumpet. The talented artist is even able to bring the very rare sound of leggero tenors into the pop genre. Furthermore, he is arguably most known for his robust falsetto and belting range and is commonly recognized as one of the strongest and most valuable talents in the adult urban contemporary R&B genre.
McKnight’s latest album, featuring Justin Timberlake, in 2013, was met with critically and commercially acclaimed reviews. Last year, the Los Angeles Times gave the 16 time Grammy nominated musical artist a stellar review for his work, even going as far as claiming, “’More Than Words’” is great. Really great…it might end up the best R&B album of the year.” The respected publication went on to insist, “No less studio adept than Timberlake's producing partner Timbaland, McKnight flexes his know-how with tart juxtapositions, as in the Middle Eastern-accented ‘Slow’ and ‘Don't Stop,’ which conjoins funk-style slap bass with gauzy keyboards out of the late-'90s British dance music known as 2-step. And the songs share a structural complexity with those on ‘The 20/20 Experience,’ offering up unexpected chord changes and winding instrumental detours. It's the sound of a master on the job.” Brian McKnight is truly a one of a kind talent; described as, “entertaining”, “smooth”, and “personable” by his fans, this is one musical act that is incredible to see live in concert.
