ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Born in Hawaii and raised in New Jersey, Brian Gaskill graduated from the prestigious Acting Conservatory at SUNY Purchase.

For many years brian has been writing poetry, but now is the first time he has put it out for the public... a very personal collection called "make-it-real"

Upon graduation, Brian performed in The Lion in Winter at The Cleveland Playhouse, co-starring Tony Award winner Elizabeth Franz, who convinced Brian to head to Los Angeles. Soon after, Brian broke into television on Aaron Spelling's Melrose Place spin-off “Models Inc”. Next, he landed the role of “Bobby Warner” on ABC's “All My Children”.

While living in New York City, Brian became the co-founder and producing director of THE RORSCHACH GROUP, a theater company dedicated to bringing new material to the stages of Manhattan.



Upon his return to L.A., Brian was seen in Sony Screen Gems' The Broken Hearts Club, and the critically acclaimed short film Higher Grounds, opposite Ann Cusack. where Brian played an angel who was a golden retriever in his previous incarnation on earth. In addition, he guest starred on numerous primetime series before returning to daytime television in the role of “Rafe,” a vampire slaying angel, on the ABC series Port Charles.


On other TV shows, Brian has since played Oscar Marone (a New Jersey/Vegas low rent casino owner) on The Bold and The Beautiful, BJ Greene (an ex high school nerd who has become a billionaire with a makeover and tendency towards insanity and chocolate milk) on As The World Turns, and Dylan Lewis (a young father, who had a baby as a teenager, and is trying to re-connect with his now teenage daughter) on Guiding Light.

Brian has also directed many independent music videos. Including one with ANNE MCCUE that reached the top ten on the logo network (an affiliate of MTV)


Dedicated and hard working, Brian also has found another love in working with kids in acting/theater arts workshops that use the techniques he has learned from various master teachers over the years, to guide the kids to place of growth, self confidence...and a self awareness that lets them be proud of who they are.

Brian is very excited about finally getting his written work out...enjoy

Steals your breath away. Manipulates your pulse. Seduces every fiber.
Make It Real is a mesmerizing mélange of vignettes which steals your breath away, manipulates your pulse, seduces every fiber, rises the body's thermostat and invigorates the most languid of beings.

Gaskill is a natural as he delivers verses which effortlessly awakens the spirit of the listener. With a voice laced with an unpretentious swagger, an excruciating rawness, an urgency of longing, a hint of childlike wonder, a desolate youth, a glimpse of a troubled adolescent, an erotic beast that longs to be satiated, a tormented man, a remorseful chap, a primal individual, an insecure visionary, a vibrant philosopher, a tender daddy, an intelligent bloke, a fiery fellow, a displaced creature, a rising phoenix, and an empowering male Gaskill transports his audience to the deepest recesses of one's humanity.

There isn't a tale that doesn't caress your essence and each adventure unfolds like an epic blockbuster... which is Gaskill's personal saga. As for this chica, the stellar standouts that whisper to my cautious, jaded and wounded nucleus are the unparalleled "Is Survival", "Did I Say That Already", "The Texture of Paint", "Falling Manifestations (& Fairy Tales), "God, I Wasted So Many Years" and "Make It Real".

Gaskill's bewitching narration transforms his audience to experience a stirring in their soul... and to fall deeply, wildly and seductively in love.

Make it Real is so compelling, so organic and so hauntingly beautiful it touches even the most exhausted of hearts.... infusing it with hope the arctic chains surrounding it will finally, finally melt!

Thankful beyond words
When I think "BRIAN GASKILL", two words come to mind: Inspiration. Hero. I suffered extreme depression for years and hearing Brian's poetry pulled me out of that, especially the poem "God I Wasted So Many Years". He was right. I had, and I was. Listening to the poetry, I heard the words, but I also felt awakened. What was I doing? Here, I was 26 years old, doing absolutely nothing--WASTING my life, and here comes Brian--saying words I needed to hear. I needed to get out of my extreme depression because if I didn't, I most likely wouldn't be here today. Because of Brian, I am now doing so much with my life and I couldn't be happier with my life. To just Be. So, thank you Brian for everything but most of all--for being my hero and inspiration.

Flawless
You just can't listen to one piece and go on to the next. Purely an addiction. You will find yourself repeating the same one over and over again. More meaning every single time. Brilliance by Brian Gaskill!!!

Flawless
You will not be able to listen to one piece and just go on to the next without constantly repeating. The intonation and creative genius is felt in every word Brian speaks. BRAVO!!!

Raw, Real: The Voice, The Poetry - One Combined!
YOU'VE NEVER HEARD POETRY LIKE THIS! I just finished listening to "MAKE IT REAL and it is REAL! So real, it reached into my soul and I believe it will reach into your soul as well. It's inspirational, it's heartfelt and simply moving! Brian is exceptionally talented, but "MAKE IT REAL" takes his art to a whole new level! BRAVO Mr. Brian Gaskill!

Windows into The Soul
Each poem is a window into the soul. Honest, and poignant imagery, at times surreal and dream-like, is yet, at the same time, very real, immediate, and present. These poems take the listener on a colorful journey of life in all its nuanced and poignant complexity. Beautiful and compelling writing and delivery!
