Brian Doucette


Brian Doucette is an east coast rocker born and raised in Cape Breton Island now based out of Edmonton, AB. He has 4 full length studio albums with a 5th in production. His 4th album (the second produced by Josh Kelly at The Basement Halifax), “If You Can’t Be Good, Be Careful Vol 1” was released on June 30th.

Brian’s style has been described by some as acoustic thrash. He blends hard rock, country, rap, celtic, blues and punk to produce a very original sound that he holds near and dear. He’s been compared to Dropkick Murphies, The Stanfields, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Sublime and Classified just to name a few.

Brian has played in venues all over the maritimes as well as throughout Canada. He and good friend/award winning blues artist Jon Hines just completed a 9 show Cross Canada tour in October. He’s also played numerous venues in Nashville, Hollywood, Honolulu and is headed to perform at this year’s SXSW Festival in Austin, TX.
