Brian Berggoetz Is Sure Of One Thing: I Know I Love You

The Arizona singer-songwriter lays his cards on the table in his latest heartwarmer.

Brian Berggoetz promises to take care of your heart in his sweetly sincere new single I Know I Love You — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

Released just before Valentine’s Day, the veteran Arizona singer-songwriter’s acoustic heartwarmer is a fittingly romantic ode to unconditional and unwavering commitment. Voiced with the straightforward honesty of someone who’s been around long enough to understand life’s ups and downs — and learned to appreciate what he has — the lyrics find Berggoetz laying his emotional cards on the table:

“I’m exhausted by the end of the day and I don’t know why
I should be better than this by now so I just get high
Sometimes I do and say wrong thing out of line
sometimes I do and say right thing out of love
I stop, I stare, I know I miss you…

“I know he walked out on you, sometimes you feel broken
Nothing will keep me from you, you make me feel what’s real and unspoken
Ghosts in the hall and crimes that I know, when did I let myself go
I’ll hold on tight and take care of your heart and all your pretty spare parts
I love you.”

Decorated with an understatedly elegant collection of interwoven acoustic guitars, rich strings, gentle percussion and harmony vocals, the track deftly hit the sweet spot between folk, pop and country. Which also happens to be one of Bergoetz’s musical comfort zones. The self-taught guitarist and natural-born songwriter has been passionate about music for most of his life — and equally committed to blending different styles and influences into his own unique sound.

To achieve this, he leads not one but two bands, utilizing different approaches to take his sound to different dimensions. One group is a straight-up, pure rock ’n’ roll affair with a lead guitarist, drummer, and bassist backing Brian’s vocals and guitar. The other is more classical and experimental, with a warmer, more laid-back lineup of orchestral elements such as violin and cello. Sometimes, Berggoetz performs the same tracks with both lineups, but with different arrangements that play to each band’s strengths — and spotlight both sides of his creative personality.

Berggoetz also has a penchant for revamping classic songs, bringing a touch of his own personality and authenticity to the material he performs. Over the years, he has been fortunate enough to share bills with internationally respected acts such as Reverend Horton Heat, Charlie Sexton and Chris Murphy, to mention a few. His debut album Wildflower appeared in 2021.
