Brian Doherty is the founder and guitar player in the band “Big Wreck”. Brian started his music journey learning the trumpet and soon moved over to guitar playing in local bands. After high school, Brian went to the prestigious Berklee college of music and soon formed “Big Wreck” with Ian Thornley. While most of the band is from America, “Big Wreck” charted high in the Canadian charts and had critical acclaim with their first release “In Loving Memory of…” and toured extensively in Canada and the USA. After a second album and some bad luck, the band broke up and all the members went on to other projects. Brian started teaching guitar in Sarnia, Ontario where he still lives today. After ten years, “Big Wreck” got back together and released a new album and started getting back into the swing of playing live and enjoying the accolades that might have been missed in their first run. In the podcast, we talk about music and how it makes him complete. We talk about Europe and new beginnings.
