Brian Alan Hager performs, records and releases indie rock music, with a classic yet alternative "sky rocket" feel as a solo artist. His songs explore a wide range of topics including personal pain, social injustice, relationships and other intense topics, but he sometimes will keep it light and have some fun. His sound is usually hard hitting electric or acoustic rock, often times exhibiting soaring guitar solos, sprinkled in with the occasional song showing a softer side. His solo music can be heard on Spotify and other online music streaming services as Brian Alan Hager, and as the bands, The Tie Downs, Infinite Twelve and The Chromes. He also performed on recordings from Vanity Crash and The Travis Haddix Band. He can often be found playing around the local Cleveand area, sometimes playing in other midwest or eastern US cities as a solo artist or with his band, Brian Hager & The Sky Rockets, consisting of bassist Ed Lemmers and Drummer Rick Snider. He is also a memeber of The Travis Haddix Band, with whom he performed at the Chicago Blues Festival and as the headliner of the 2010 Congac Blues Passions fesitval in Cognac, France. He breifly attended Boston's Berklee College of Music in the early 1990s.Event Schedule
