Nik Kershaw was born in Bristol in 1958. His formative years were spent in Ipswich where he discovered his love for music. In 1978, after three years working as a civil servant, he turned professional, serving his apprenticeship playing guitar in jazz fusion and functions bands.

He signed with MCA Records in 1983 and released his debut album “Human Racing” in 1984. It achieved multi platinum sales and launched Nik’s career worldwide. The equally successful “The Riddle” followed and, in July 1985, he took the Wembley stage to perform at Live Aid.
In 1990, after four MCA albums and sales of over 8 million, Nik left the spotlight to concentrate on song writing and producing. The following years saw him working with Elton John, Chesney Hawkes, Cliff Richard, Bonnie Tyler, Lulu, Ronan Keating, Jason Donovan, Tony Banks, Michael W Smith, Conner Reeves, Nick Carter, The Hollies, Colin Blunstone, Imogen Heap, Gary Barlow and Let Loose.
He rekindled his recording career in 1998 with the critically acclaimed album “15 Minutes” and has subsequently released two further albums, “To Be Frank” (2001) and “You’ve Got To Laugh” (2006).
He has received accolades from such legends as Eric Clapton and Miles Davis and has been nominated for four Brit Awards.

What started off as nothing more than an avenue to record material that was a little more personal than usual is now a full blown live performance act. Brisom is a project of Brian Sombero, a collection of songs that talk about his travels while away from the industry that he has grown up in,now made ready available for you. Because no great song deserves to go unheard, and no great story deserves to be left untold.

Brisom: Jason Rondero, Jeffrey Castro, Timothy Abbott, Terence Teves and Brian Sombero.

The Philippines is a great place to discover music. The burgeoning independent music scene is full of talented acts that are ripe for the picking. Brisom, a blossoming new group from Manila is a great example of a local band that carries an undeniable crossover and international appeal. The group was put together by Brian Sombero, former front man for the cult band Menaya, whose album “The Worst News” is considered by local underground music purist as one of the best album you have never heard.

Brian initially wanted to record songs just for the heck of it. Friends from the local band scene who listened to the new materials liked them so much that they prodded him form a live core group. Brian arranged the songs and mixed it with the talents of Tim Abbott, Jason Rondero, Jeffrey Castro and Terence Teves.

Peers describe them as a “new band with old souls”, which may be the reason why though admittedly the band is relatively new, they have been getting rave reviews. Last November, the band opened for Dave Elkins, front man of seminal American rock group “Mae” on his Manila leg of his Asian Tour at the Hardrock Café, Makati and in Tab, Singapore. Brisom also had a show in Blu Jaz Cafe, SG last March 2013.

They were also invited to play in the most recent Sonic Carnival, an international festival featuring bands like Razorback, Urbandub, UpDharmaDown and international DJ acts such as Laidback Luke and Steve Aoki.

The band is mulling an EP release early 2014 entitled “Perspectives”
