Brian Pagels is a Jersey-raised, NOVA-living, carpetbagging, singer-songwriting fool. He likes to play the music.
Brian's to do list through the years:
1994: Learn guitar
1997: Write a song
1999: Form a college band
2000-02: Practice with said band; play a few mediocre shows
2003: Dissolve said band and reform as guitar duo Through The Wall; get a weekly gig at Potter's Pub in Richmond, VA; record a double album
2004-05: Play the occasional reunion show
2006-07: Form new, more geographically convenient duo with an Australian (because the birds dig the accent) accurately dubbed Coalition Of The Willing; get another weekly gig at TopGolf in Alexandria, VA; play more than 100 shows over two years in the DC metro area; record another album; have one damn good farewell show at the Hawk & Dove in DC.
2008: Start the solo career; write a lot of songs; play until I collapse from exhaustion and then play some more...
