Brian Lopez

Indie rocker Brian Lopez, known for his cinematic melodies and soaring vocals, has been called “the missing link between Devandra Banhart and Roy Orbison.” Born and based in Tucson, Lopez is a classically-trained guitarist and songwriter who merges his desert roots with soul, pop and rock’n’roll to transport his listeners on an ethereal journey.

Lopez released his first solo album, Ultra, in 2012 to international acclaim. Rolling Stone Germany described the record as “Psychedelic chamber-pop with the surrealist touch of Dalí.” After touring across Europe and the US as the opening act for KT Tunstall, Giant Sand and Heartless Bastards, he released Static Noise in 2014. Tastemaker Musikexpress declared
Lopez “without a doubt, one of the best songwriters of his generation.” In 2018, he independently released Prelude, a lo-fi 10-song album written and recorded in his makeshift home studio during a two-week period. Lopez's forthcoming release, due out in 2023, builds upon his songwriting prowess while returning to his origins in indie rock.

Aside from his solo project, Lopez is also frontman of the psych/cumbia band XIXA and has worked with an expansive range of artists, including Calexico, Amos Lee, Nouvelle Vague, KT Tunstall, Giant Sand, and Mexican Institute of Sound.
