Brian McKnight And His Band Return To Australia This October

Fall in love once again and be mesmerised by the ice-cold voice of R&B superstar and multi-award winning singer-songwriter Brian McKnight as he returns to Australia this October with his full live band. Off the back of two sold-out Australian tours in 2011 and 2013, Brian will be touring his classics along with celebrating his new album Better in the Gold Coast, Sydney, Perth and Melbourne.

"One of the greatest singer-songwriters of our time" – The AU Review

"Brian McKnight proves that everything develops better with time. Better is a refreshing collection of soulful RnB grooves" – Renowned for Sound

"McKnight’s voice is still smooth as silk. He is one of those musicians that only gets “better” with age." – Digital Journal

Born in Buffalo, New York, McKnight was 19 when he inked his first record deal with Mercury Records, releasing his self-titled album which spawned the single ’One Last Cry'. Over the span of more than two decades, Brian McKnight has sold over 30 million records worldwide.

This album was followed shortly thereafter by I Remember You (1995) and Anytime (1997), which collectively sold over two million copies in the US alone and received a mountain of critical acclaim. McKnight released Back at One in 1999, marking his most successful album which went on to sell over three million copies in the US alone. It featured the massive single ‘Back at One’ which sat at #2 on the Billboard chart for eight weeks. McKnight went on to sign with Motown Records, releasing five albums, and now has an independently own label called Brian McKnight Music.

With 16 Grammy nominations under his belt, McKnight has been nominated for American Music Awards and Soul Train Music Awards, and has also collaborated with the likes of Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake and Australia’s very own Guy Sebastian.

His latest album, Better, (out now via Brian McKnight Music) brings back music back to basics as it features all real instruments with zero auto tune - McKnight himself describing it as “completely organic”. Inspired by his current relationship and finally finding “the one”, the album is McKnight’s most advanced work to date. Featuring songs like ‘Uh Oh Feeling’ and ‘Better’, it is a genuine album that attests to McKnight's talent.

Audience should expect to hear McKnight’s silky vocals draped over an mesmerising display of musicianship in a multi-instrumentalist show. McKnight is able to play nine instruments, including piano, guitar and bass, and is unafraid to dive into his 16-album deep catalogue.

"McKnight knew how to give the crowd exactly what they wanted, even before his most universally cherished numbers made their appearance." – The AU Review

"Legendary crooner Brian McKnight brought his musicianship full force" – Yahoo News
