Profile Information

About Me:
A Londoner born and bred, Brian’s enthusiasm for life is only matched with his passion for music, which has reverberated around the rooms in his house for over thirty-four years

With the obligatory path of mobile DJ followed, his teenage years saw him play in various UK clubs, then moving from stage to studio and into the heady days of London’s pirate radio scene with the iconic Horizon Radio and its successor and now pan-European based, Solar Radio.

In 2000, Brian created Soul24-7.com which led the way for soul music onto the new medium of the internet. He also joined WCLK Atlanta in July 2009, bringing with him his unique concept and ability to blend the genres of Soul and Jazz and everything in between. His show, ‘The Hurst Selection – London to America’ which ran for two years, led to an unprecedented rise in WCLK’s Saturday evening audience figures.

Brian couldn’t really tell you his favorite band, singer or style of music, but if you think along the lines of Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway, Marvin Gaye, Earth, Wind & Fire, Patrice Rushen, Jeff Lorber or new cats like Avery *Sunshine or Live Tropical Fish, you’ll be on the right track. His greatest musical influences though come from his late father and the many thousands of artists that he has had the pleasure of listening to and working with over the last four decades.
