Brian Jantzi & The Lost Mariachis

Singer/songwriter & multi-instrumentalist Brian Jantzi digs deep into folk, rock, jazz, blues, bluegrass, Celtic, western, latin, psychedelic, & world traditions with original songs that lay a lonesome hippie vibe over lyrics that make you want to hear every word.    

  • New CD Released 2017 – “Junkie for Emotion” – 14 original songs – an album that flows across genres, geographies & times.    
  • Original songs that lay a lonesome hippie vibe over lyrics that make you want to hear every word.    
  • Sounding like Lou Reed, Murray McLauchlan & Leonard Cohen riding a Jefferson Airplane beside some Byrds flying south from Memphis to Central Asia.    
Singer/songwriter & multi-instrumentalist Brian Jantzi grew up saturated by all genres of music, particularly while spending young summers with his Irish grandparents in North Bay. Shakin’ All Over, Paperback Writer & All Along the Watchtower drilled into his bones and Brian picked up the guitar in the late 60s, learning by ear. This Winterfolk concert will be the official CD release performance of Brian’s new CD “Junkie for Emotion” – 14 original songs that dig deep into folk, rock, jazz, blues, bluegrass, Celtic, western, latin, psychedelic, & world music traditions. Backed by The Lost Mariachis – a collaborative of some of Toronto’s best session players, Brian will lay a lonesome hippie vibe over lyrics that will make you want to hear every word. Past performances have been described as Lou Reed, Murray McLauchlan & Leonard Cohen riding a Jefferson Airplane beside some Byrds flying south from Memphis to Central Asia. With strong lyrics and straight ahead performances – Brian sings it like he means it because he really does mean it.
