20 years later, that self-taught 9 year old's honed skills come off as natural as Brian possesses the kind of magnetism and talent as a vocalist that captures you from the moment you first hear his voice. When Brian Fuente takes the stage, he takes the room. With vocals rich and captivating, and roots brought to bear, Brian emanates passion and conviction in every performance.
In 2007, Brian moved to Nashville to join a larger community of artists, embedding himself in the music scene and putting together his first Nashville band, Newmatic. Brian wrote like a madman and took Newmatic from obscurity to popularity quickly, gaining an increasingly loyal audience. Itching to show the world what he was all about, in the summer of 2011, the singer auditioned for the hit TV reality competition, The Voice. His version of Grace Potter's "Paris" earned him a spot on Team Blake [Shelton] and the chance to work alongside Shelton and Kelly Clarkson.
Catapulted from his success on The Voice, Brian has since shared the stage with Maroon 5, Gym Class Heroes, and Cobra Starship. Poised and ready to take on the world, in October Brian released his solo project, 1983. The making of the record involved writing and recording with some of Nashville's finest and getting back to the heart of his earliest creative beginnings.
