Letting go, this is the message Brik.Liam promotes daily, without using a word, sometimes cleverly with that red-balloon-emoji you scroll past in your phone. His music speaks of the same theme; letting go. Whether it is in reference to a relationship, which most of the time it is, or simply letting go of fear, doubt, inhibition and bad habits.
The sound he presents, is quite soulful because of where he sings from, but also extremely eclectic and various in taste and texture, because of his eclectic and diversified upbringing. Brik.Liam, born Jacoby Jerome Williams, is a Virginia born artist, but grew up in several parts of the world. This is owed to his stepfather being in the military. He's lived in quite a few states and a couple different countries.
