Brian Tremblay

Brian Tremblay is a singer/songwriter from Sault Ste Marie, Ontario. He walked away from his music nine years ago and became disillusioned leaving it behind. It wasn't until he encountered some famous musicians that he rediscovered his music from a new viewpoint.

Brian had the opportunity to create a program for a new local Internet radio station called The Borderline. His show is called "Rock N Roll Heaven" and he interviews some icons in the Canadian music industry. After hearing their words on how they came up in the business and their thoughts on songwriting and music, Tremblay was inspired and picked up the guitar again. He began writing and decided to explore some past tracks that he recorded but didn't do anything with. He brought them back into the daylight and found there were some shining gems amongst the detritus.

With his band The Sinister Hearts, eight singles are now on all the streaming services. They have received much airplay from online radio stations like Radio TFSC (North Dakota), Radio WigWam (UK), Radio What (Arkansas), Only Rock Radio (Spain) and KRAC Radio (Quebec). Their single “By My Time” placed at #3 on Radio TFSC’s Daily Top 24 on July 6, 2021, and “Steel Man” hit their chart again at #10 for the week of November 12. Only Rock Radio placed their song Too Many Kings (And Only One Crown) at #2 for the week of April 25 and#3 for the week of May 23. Radio Alliance and Only Rock Radio Spain made Tremblay's song, All In The Game #1 for the week of October 10, 2022.

Tremblay's music is rooted in the songs he heard growing up on the local AM radio station. He inherited his sister's Beatles albums and became a lifelong fan. His songwriting has matured as he has matured into his senior years. Country music has always been in the background since his father enjoyed it and watched programs like Hee Haw, The Tommy Hunter Show and the Don Messer Show. Tremblay's songwriting is infused with his love of outlaw country players like Blaze Foley, Steve Earle, and Townes Van Zandt. Bruce Springsteen's wordsmith writing has a special place for him.
