âConnecticut songwriter Kevin Briody is cut from the honest, artful cloth of the best Yankee ballad-writers. His narrative songs are personal yet cinematic, filled with vivid, pastoral imagery and useful wisdom. He seems to earn new fans and folk-biz boosters wherever his songs travelâ
Scott Alarik, Boston Globe
2008 Emmy Award Winner Kevin Briodyâs songs and stories may feel as comfortable as a summer day on the front porch, but they've taken him to some of the most hallowed corners of the songwriting world. Briody is a three-time finalist in the prestigious Kerrville New Folk Contest , and he showcased at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival. His compelling "We're All Heroes" opened the 1999 Connecticut Special Olympic Summer Games. In 2001 he won the South Florida Folk Festival National Songwriting Competition. In 2002 Cure Autism Now (CAN), a national organization combating the disease, released his song âBring Them Backâ. From 2000-2002 Briody served as Connecticutâs Official State Troubadour; a position created by The State General Assembly to recognize Connecticutâs Songwriter Laureate. He has also been chosen as a Connecticut Commission on the Artâs Master Teaching Artist; teaching songwriting workshops and residencies to children and adults alike. In 2003 Briody joined the stage with Lyle Lovett, Aimee Mann and Ani DiFranco at The Newport Folk Festival, and has performed The National Anthem three times at Fenway Park during Boston Red Sox games. Briody has also enjoyed great success writing for film and TV. Most recently, his song "Little Starr" was featured on ABC Television's One Life To Live, and received an EMMY AWARD for âBest Original Songâ.
Briodyâs critically acclaimed debut CD, "When No One's Watching", was released in 1999. Robert K. Oermann of Music Row Magazine selected it as his DISCovery Award.
"This was one terrific discovery. Heâs a storyteller. A top-drawer troubadour with an earnest, heart-filled folkie delivery. Seek this CD out and fall under its spell.â Robert K. Oermann, MusicRow
In 2001, with the help of an Artist Fellowship Grant he received from The National Endowment for the Arts and The Connecticut Commission on the Arts, Briody released his second CD entitled âFamiliarâ.
âLike loving the loose banister in Itâs A Wonderful Life, Briody cherishes it all: the mess, diapers, and compromised plans. Hereâs a warm album filled with stories of loving family growth.â

The list of rooms -- and in some cases ranches -- Briody has worked is a veritable "Where's Where of American Folk Venues": The Kennedy Center (Washington, DC), The Newport Folk Festival (Newport, RI), The Bluebird Cafe (Nashville, TN), Fenway Park (Boston, MA), The Kerrville Folk Festival (Kerrville, TX), The Bitter End (New York, NY), Club Passim (Boston, MA).
The diverse list of artists with whom Briody has shared the stage is equally impressive: Art Garfunkel, Trisha Yearwood, Kenny Loggins, Susan Werner, Don McLean, Sophie B. Hawkins, Bill Morrissey, Smokey Robinson, Dar Williams, Patty Loveless, The Kingston Trio, John Gorka, Livingston Taylor, Greg Brown, Ellis Paul, Loudon Wainwright III, Cheryl Wheeler, Patty Larkin, Tish Hinojosa, Vance Gilbert, Janis Ian, and Tom Paxton.
