So, we’re premiering it exclusively – just for you guys! Hear it here and fall in love with Brian Mackey:

So good, right?! We chatted with Brian to find out more about him – read his Q&A right here:

Tell us about your single, “Are You Listening” – what’s the inspiration behind it?
I was on the couch around 2 am with the lights off in my apartment the moonlight that came through the window lit the room.. the cat was my audience and the song came to me..

What’s it like having such a huge international following? Have you had the chance to travel abroad and perform for those fans?
It’s a cool thing really.. I’m amazed in how the people of Europe speak and understand English so well and how the appreciate the music I’m really grateful for it.. I got the chance to perform in November in 5 cities in Germany and will be returning in May 2016 to Germany and the U.K. For more concerts super excited!

We hear you’re performing at the NY Kings halftime show in March – can you tell us how that came about?
I was selected to play through a contest online and was chosen by the judges to attend.. I’m a huge basketball fan so I’m honored to be a part of it!

Who are some of your favorite artists at the moment? Who would you love to get in the studio with?
Avicii , Imagine Dragons and Bastille Would love to record with any of them for sure..

What’s the songwriting process usually like for you?
It usually starts with a conversation wth myself and me sitting at the piano or on the guitar .. Sometimes I’ll be in my car and have to pull over to get down an idea.. It can happen in a dream or anytime it’s hard to control really 😎

Any special message for your fans?
Just Love.. It’s free and freeing..it heals and breeds happiness .. When we love we plant seeds of hope for a better future <3
