Seamlessly blending a combination of indie/alternative energy, singer-songwriter lyrics, pop arrangements, and a three piece funky horn section, Brunswick's music capitalizes on the best aspects of most "popular" genres without it being forced or sounding like they're trying too hard.
From Baltimore, MD Brunswick was, to put it gently, a happy accident. The initial goal for Marc Cashin (guitar/lead vocals) was to record a small demo and keep it as a historical record of the songs he had written. After hooking up with long-time friend and producer, Stephen Antonelli (SongBuilder Studios), it became clear that these songs could be much more than just a personal demo.
With that in mind, Marc reached out to drummer, Jamaal Turner. Marc and Jamaal had previously played in a band together and although they had spent years working on projects separately, Marc says he always knew that Jamaal was the only drummer who was right for these songs. From there, they found trombone player, John McCahey, an accomplished funk and jazz player around town. John quickly recommended that they bring in saxophonist Jay Fenner, a jazz powerhouse, and the band filled out their horn section with trumpet player extraordinaire, Makai Guest. Baltimore, having a small but tight musical scene, meant that rounding out the band just required talking to some old friends. John brought in friend Andrew O'Donnell to lock down the rhythm section on bass guitar and later, Tom O'Donnell, a friend of Marc's and Jamaal's joined up on lead guitar. The final piece to the puzzle was the addition of Josh Miller on keys & organ.
The band quickly became known for their high energy shows blending both their affinity for musical improvisation with singable and meaningful lyrics. Fans quickly came to understand that seeing Brunswick live meant hearing new takes on their songs each and every night. Giving much of their success to a dedicated and ever-growing fanbase, Brunswick continues to expand their reach playing more and more shows to more and more people each night.
Brunswick isn't a band you can write off based on genre. They're unique yet comfortably familiar and their fanbase is as diverse as the music and the band itself. No matter what type of music you like, chances are you'll find something here that calls you home.
Brunswick released their debut album, The Same Ground, in October of 2022 and is currently working on their second record while maintaining an active live music schedule.
