Painting by Maria Teicher

Brian Dougherty has been a writer in some form or another for over two decades. From his teens throughout his thirties, Brian’s primary focus was on song and album writing; both musical and lyrical. In his early thirties Brian’s first book, Verse // Viscera: Volume 1, was published – formally starting Brian’s career in writing outside of music.

Brian is a voting member of the Recording Academy (GRAMMYS) as well as a District Advocate, and enjoys writing concept albums and short fiction. He currently lives in the Philadelphia area with his amazingly talented wife Maria Teicher, son, and black cats Baxter and Maxfield.
