Original Composition by Brain Crosby.

Brian’s career kicked off in style when, at age 16, he with his classmate Damien Rice started playing music together in school. This led to them forming the indie band Juniper and then later Bell X1, with whom Brian went on to record four albums and extensively tour the world.

Brian then set about creating The Cake Sale – a project set up to raise funds for the international charity Oxfam. The all-star-line-up featured Snowpatrol’s Gary Lightbody, The Cardigans Nina Persson, The Divine Comedy’s Neil Hannon, Lisa Hannigan, Glen Hansard, and Paul Noonan from Bell X1. The record was released in Europe and America to huge critical acclaim, became a multi-platinum selling hit, and still generates royalties for Oxfam.

Not being able to ignore his lifelong calling to score music to picture, Brian up’d sticks and moved to Berlin, where he converted a 3500sq ft factory in the heart of Kreuzberg into a modular recording studio complex. The studio became home to a head-spinning stable of composers including Hildur Guõnadóttir, Dustin O’Halloran, Rutger Hoedemaekers and the late, great Jóhann Jóhannsson - with whom Brian collaborated with on various TV and Film projects including Transparent, The Mercy, Mary Magdalene & I Love Dick.

After eight busy years in Berlin, Brian decided to return to his roots in his native Ireland. Inspired by the vast wooded landscape of County Wicklow, he designed and built ‘Treehouse Studios’, a stunning log cabin recording studio at the foot of Carrick Mountain.

In the spring of 2021, while most of the world was still in lockdown, Brian recorded his debut solo album Imbrium. The Sunday Times described the record as “nine unadorned piano instrumentals capture the stillness of life suspended, each piece as delicate and moving as it is restrained. The result is a quietly meditative work perfectly in tune with our present lives”.

In addition to composing music for Film and TV, the worlds most revered advertising agencies continue to engage Brian’s talents to help them soundtrack global brand campaigns for clients such as Samsung, Google, Under Armour, Dodge, Toyota, Wolf Blass, Volkswagen, Ferrero Küsschen, Uniqlo & Pfizer.

Brian is also a director of the Irish Music Rights Organisation and is Chair of the Screen Composers Guild of Ireland.
