ROLE: Singer/Songwriter, Sometime Guitarist

OTHER OCCUPATIONS/INTERESTS: Entrepreneur. Screenwriter. Amateur Thespian.

MARITAL STATUS: Married; Nancy Sullivan

HISTORY: Raised in Lowell, Massachusetts. During his school years Downesy found himself drawn to music while fumbling with the guitar. His early inspiration came from such bands as The Beatles, U2 and Led Zeppelin to name a few. While attending an impromtu jam session Downesy stepped in and has assumed the front man role ever since.
After numerous player rotations the band settled into a permanent line up and took on the name Zen Ten (Rich Cowdrey - guitars and keys; Elliott "Dodger" Cowdrey - guitars and bass; Dave "Redman" Redding - guitars; Steve Thellen - keys and programming; Dave "Spanky" LaTorre - drums).

In 2000, as Zen Ten's performance schedule thinned Downesy extended himself to other projects including the premier U2 tribute act Zootopia.

Brian and his wife, Nancy, make their home in Pelham, New Hampshire with their two children.
