The new CD by Brian Leneschmidt is an mellow, singer-songwriter collection of songs showcasing Brian’s acoustic side. As well as playing electric blues-rock in two bands Brian performs regularly as a solo acoustic act. The new project is a nod to the softer side of his writing and playing.
Brian Leneschmidt has played all over the region, solo or with bands for over ten years. He has recorded four CD's of original music that have achieved radio interest ranging from local to international radio play as far as Great Britain and Eastern Europe and has gathered great reviews from national music magazines and regional publications. The CD, Brian Leneschmidt & Edge of Soul, combines his electric and acoustic writting including remakes of six previous songs and eleven new songs. The latest, "Passing By," was released in 2009 and is an acoustic album of eleven new songs.
The summer of 2001 his previous band, Fatt Cat Freddie, was chosen by FOX Radio in Colorado to open "Hawg Fest", an annual event at Red Rocks Amphitheater, and the band was showcased in Salt Lake City, Utah, playing a private engagement for the Australian media the closing night of the 2002 Winter Olympics. He was the house act at a Cheyenne lounge playing solo acoustic four nights a week for two and a half years, creating a great fan base and an impressive repertoire of music. Annual shows in Sturgis, SD and Blues Festival performances as well as a 2007 performance in Molenbeersel, Belgium have helped pave the way for Brian's growing career. Brian's solo performances on six and twelve string guitar includes a mix of Original music, singer-songwriter, rock, R&B, Blues and Country. Band shows fuse Blues and Rock together with Original music and cover songs. Brian now keeps his schedule playing solo dates as well as shows with his bands Edge of Soul and the Another fine Mess.
