I Know I Love You Performed by: Brian Berggoetz #Americana #Folk


Listen on Apple Music

Brian Berggoetz is based in Tucson, Arizona. The group is led by singer and songwriter Brian Berggoetz. His music could be described as a unique combination of different styles and influences, such as pop and rock alike. Brian has been passionate about music throughout most of his life. He is a self-taught guitarist and a gifted songwriter who has been active since his early 20s. What makes his music unique is the fact that he doesn’t just write his own music, but he also has a penchant for re-writing classic songs in his personal style. While many cover song artists tend to reproduce the covers they interpret verbatim, B3 is very gifted when it comes to bringing a touch of personality and authenticity to the material that he performs. 

The artist is active as a performer, and he had the chance to play live extensively, including opening and sharing the stage for internationally respected acts, the likes of Reverend Horton Heat, Charlie Sexton, and Jerry Giddens, only to mention a few. Brian took the local music scene (and beyond) by storm with not one but two amazing bands. He uses these different line-ups to bring his sound to different dimensions. 

One of the groups is a straight-up, pure rock and roll affair, consisting of a lead guitarist, a drummer, and a bass player supporting Brian as a lead vocalist and rhythm guitar player. The second line-up allows Brian to experiment with a warmer, more laid-back sound, which features orchestral elements such as a violin and a cello. It is always interesting to hear Brian arrange some of his songs differently. Sometimes, he performs the same tracks with both line-ups, but he changes the song arrangement to fit the specific sounds the band has to offer depending on whether he is going to perform them with his rock lineup or with the classical band. The fact that he is so versatile and his songs fit such different contexts are incredibly remarkable, allowing people to enjoy different sides to his artist pathos and personality as a whole.

Much like a baker using the proper ratios and ingredients, he can expertly craft his music by knowing exactly how to blend all of these different influences into something that is quite special and personal. There is a time for melody, and there is a time for energy: Brian is able to endow his tracks with equal doses of these two important elements, and his sound is balanced and poignant because of that. His songs always stand out as a fantastic example of what it means to make pop-rock songs that are catchy yet extremely insightful and diverse.

The hard-hitting punch of this track speakers for itself, and if you enjoy the music of artists such as Bruce Springsteen, and John Cougar Mellencamp, only to mention a few. Currently, the band is also working on new music, with an upcoming album to be released very soon. If the material he’s been released thus far is any indication, audiences are certainly in for a very special treat. Brian, aided by his trusty bandmates and musical collaborators, is always eager to set the bar higher, creating music that the crowd can easily relate to. Whether you enjoy his songs at home or get a chance to see him on stage, the experience will undoubtedly leave a profound impression and a big mark.
