Brian Ellefson

About Brian Ellefson: Brian was born in Honolulu, Hawaii and has the laid back, down to earth sound and attitude that comes with the territory. He spent 6 years as a studio musician before releasing his own album Panoramic View. The album was a solo effort with Brian writing, recording and producing the tracks over the last year. During his time as a studio musician, he spent a lot of time playing alongside other guitarists and learned to play complement to the root chords. That accent-style guitar carried forward into his own music and is prominent on most songs on the album.

“I’ve always thought of myself as guitarist first and a singer second. When I was in high school this guy posted an ad for a singer for his band and I’d never sung before but decided to give it a try. I landed the role but felt like I wasn’t contributing enough just singing and decided that I wanted to be a guitarist, too. I taught myself to play and had such poor dexterity when I started that I had to bend my thumb over the fret board instead of using my fingers. Thankfully I got better and I’ve put a lot of effort into learning different guitar styles like flamenco, classical and blues.
