Brian has also scored national and international TV commercials for a wide range of brands including Google, Dodge, Samsung, Under Armour, Toyota, Volkswagen, Renault, Carlsberg, Eir GAA and the IDA.

    Along with other leading name in Irish contemporary music, Brian was a central collaborator on Starboard Home as part of the Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme. The project culminated with two live shows at the National Concert Hall in Dublin and the release of a critically acclaimed album.
