Hailing from Frederick, Maryland, Brian Severn & Those Victorious are quickly proving to be tenacious self starters. Writing and performing highly melodic compositions with emotionally intelligent lyrics and big catchy hooks, it's evident that their inspiration comes from within. The band, which began as a solo acoustic project featuring Brian Severn, has grown into a solid, song-oriented powerhouse. Brian began playing guitar at age 10 and began writing and performing by age 12. After watching Green Day's Woodstock Performance on television, he knew instinctively what he had to do.
The band features Brian Severn on guitar and lead vocal, with Paddy Mayonnaise on drums/percussion, Brian "Briany Tiny Hands" Tessier on guitar/back vocal, and Chris "Playboy" Martin on bass. Inspired by artists such as Green Day, Everclear, GlassJaw, Alkaline Trio, and Tom Petty, the band completed their second EP produced by Grammy nominated engineer/producer David Ivory (The Roots, Halestorm, Silvertide, Patti LaBelle). The EP, titled "Wonderboy," was released in the Fall of 2007.
Brian Severn & Those Victorious are dead serious in their quest to create awareness for their project. Continuing to seek guidance from David Ivory and engaging Artist Management and Music Marketing firm Allure Media Entertainment, (Philadelphia, PA) to assist in the furtherance of their career, the band seems destined for independent success.
