BIO

Songwriter/Guitarist/Singer/Humorist - Mumblefinger 

Ten years ago, MUMBLEFINGER, aka Brian Birkes was “going places;" writing songs being produced and recorded by Legendary Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section member and record producer, Barry Beckett (also produced or played with Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Elton John, Bob Seger) which culminated in a stellar CD – The Beckett Sessions.

 

He was twice featured on the Nationally syndicated House of Blues Radio Hour show;  had a video (Exactly Like You) playing on CMT  (Country Music Television);  and... was even being paid by a German label not to sign with anyone while they readied a contract.  

 

Unfortunately, amid this time, Mumble (Brian) developed a severe form of arthritis and had to step out of the stressful Live music biz to rest, write and record.  However, in the last few years, with his medicine working well and the call to perform live again, Mumble began playing live at his local (Northern California-Southern Oregon clubs), but... NOW, he is back to performing at NATIONAL ticketed venues such as Sierra Nevada Brewery,  Feather Falls CasinoThe State TheaterThe Cascade Theatre

 

Mumblefinger (aka Brian Birkes), has released many CDs independently and his songs have been showcased on the internationally syndicated House of Blues Radio Hour, NPR and radio stations throughout the U.S., Germany, and Brazil. 

 

Mumble has shared the bill with such greats as John Lee Hooker, Leon Russell, Average White Band, and Norton Buffalo (Doobie Brothers, Steve Miller Band).

 

Mumblefinger’s original songs vary from Funk to Jazz to Blues/Soul to Country to Reggae all with a Rock-n-Roll Flavor.  Style is similar to, but not a clone of, Leon Russell, Joe Cocker, Dr. John, Robin Trower, The Subdudes, and JJ Cale.
