The show will also feature songs from Brian three prior solo albums.

Dear Friends,

I am pleased to announce my husband, Brian’s album launch on November 16th at the Prince of Wales. The evening is an honour to Brian and appreciation of his mastery works. Prior to Brian passing away I was committed to the album release. Post his death I extended this to an album launch as a way to pay homage to him in the best possible way. This wouldn’t have been possible without the support and solidarity of our music community. Thank you and I look forward to spending this memorable evening with you. Specific acknowledgements will be made on the night during my speech.

Ninevah Hooper

Ninevah has continued Brian’s work and in line with his wishes completed ‘What Would I Know?’ with Brian’s friends following his passing.

‘What Would I Know?’ will be released on Bang! Records.

Tickets for the Brian Henry Hooper album launch on 16 November 2018 at the Prince of Wales, St Kilda are here.
