Singer/songwriter Brian Dolzani’s intrigue and obsession with Neil Young’s music happened towards the end of High School when he got turned onto the entire tone of classic rock. ‘Among all this music I suddenly loved and needed, I knew Neil was special to me. The high, lonesome, mourning voice, the very strange lyrics…it was the world I wanted to be in’. As Brian’s own songwriting developed, he has always looked to Neil for inspiration.
Over the last 20 years, Brian has made acclaim for himself as a talented, well-traveled, and prolific artist, releasing 10 original independent albums. His Neil Young covers in his own shows always stand out and grab listener’s attention, as Brian’s voice is remarkably similar in tone to Mr. Young’s. A very common sentiment from listeners is ‘You sound exactly like Neil, but better!’ It’s in this spirit that Brian Dolzani has decided to launch a solo tribute show called ‘Brian Dolzani as The Loner: The Music of Neil Young’. Brian channels Neil to the amazement of listeners to the extent that people often close their eyes and think they are in the presence of the main man himself.
The Loner shows are classic Neil Young songs performed solo by Brian on acoustic and electric guitars and piano, and of course, the distinct and striking vocals.
