Brian Dunne with Zach Wiley

Brian Dunne is not your grandma’s antiseptic, pseudo baby boomer singer songwriter. Known for his laugh-to-keep-from-crying, darkly humorous lyrics, Dunne’s work reconfigures the limiting nature of the genre into something less cotton candy young love, more burn down the banks. This DIY ethos, born from a healthy New York cynicism self-conceptualized, funded, and dragged to every willing venue, found an easy home at Kill Rock Stars along the likes of The Decemberists, Jeff Hanson, and Sleater- Kinney. Releasing his fourth album in early 2023, his first on KRS, Dunne is bending the sounds of American rock into masterfully composed, existentially poignant, wildly catchy renderings of being alive.

Zach Wiley's musical roots started early as he spent his childhood traveling in a bus across the Southeast with his family's touring southern gospel band. His music taste spans across multiple genres as he draws inspiration from artists such as Bruce Hornsby, Elliott Smith, The Beatles, Wilco and more. Wiley started recording his own music in middle school and has since released three records including two collaborations as well as his latest solo endeavor Alberta Delft Blue, in which he co-produced and handled all instruments himself. Wiley is currently playing solo while recording the follow-up to 2019's Alberta Delft Blue which is set to be released in 2024.
