Happy Birthday Brian. It was great to see you perform in Durham last month. I can't believe that it has only just dawned on me that you share you birthday with my son Bailey who was 5 today. Hope you had as good a day as he had (he wants to know if you got a DS as well).

Dear Brian, Wishing you a fabulously Happy Birthday from sunny Morecambe. Many thanks for playing here at The Platform again this year - we can't believe how lucky we are and love having you here  Hope your day and year are filled with life, love and much happiness. Love, Ruth xxx

Brian it is a beautiful day here, and I hope it is wherever you are, that you have a bottle of Cloudy Bay open, or waiting to be opened, and are in good company. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU.

Dear Brian, Wishing you a very happy birthday. May you have health and happiness always and may you continue to find inspiration in your music and writing. Thank you for another year of music and laughter. Brian, I can't thank you enough for the amazing night that you gave me and my friends and family when you performed in my living room. The memories live on. I share this blessing from John O'Donoghue with you especially for your birthday:

May the light of your soul guide you.
May the light of your soul bless the work that you do
with the secret love and warmth of your heart.
May you see in what you do the beauty of your own soul.
May the sacredness of your work bring healing, light
and renewal to those who work with you
and to those who see and receive your work.
May your work never weary you.
May it release within you wellsprings of
refreshment, inspiration and excitement.
May you be present in what you do.
May you never become lost in bland absences.
May the day never burden.
May dawn find you awake and alert,
approaching your new day with dreams, possibilities and promises.
May evening find you gracious and fulfilled.
May you go into the night blessed, sheltered and protected.
May your soul calm, console and renew you.

Have a great birthday Brian. Love Brenda

Congratulations Brian! Have a great birthday Brian. Thanks for the great music

Julie Williamson from Stoke-on-Trent
Dearest Brian, have a wonderful birthday and what a year it's been.  Thank you for all your concerts this year and thank you for being a guide on part of my journey on the road to recovery from long-term depression.  Also thank you for introducing me to more positive people, through your music and beautiful soul/being.  You have raised me up and I hope to catch some more concert dates next year to catch up with you and my BK buddies, home and abroad.  You should be proud of all your achievements and for bringing together so many people.  "Thank you" doesn't quite adequately cover it, but it's the only words I have. 

Take care, have a great day and 42 isn't so bad - it seems to have been the year with a lot of answers for me.  Love and best wishes, Julie Williamson (aged 42 and 11/12!) xx

Cathy Kennedy
G is for Gorgeous!  At the risk of sounding like an extra from "Mamma Mia", thank you for the music, thanks for all the joy and pleasure you bring into my life by sharing your incredible voice and the many other amazing talents you have been gifted with.   Loads of love and bagfuls of birthday hugs are winging their way to you across cyberspace as you read this message.  I wish you a glorious day filled with love, joy and laughter and your fair share of Cloudy Bay!  Cathy xxx
