The Line is the pseudonym of Brian Dillon, musician, Irishman and human being. Brian is originally from a small town in rural Ireland and he has never quite been able to escape the lines of identity that separate his life from the lives of others. In his project, The Line, Brian explores the lines that separate positive from negative, beauty from ugliness, society from solitude, universality from individuality, you from me.
Brian is a member of Meltybrains? and has worked with a range of Irish artists over the last 10 years, including Loah, Godknows, Lilla Vargen and The Dublin Laptop Orchestra, among others. He has performed at festivals such as SXSW and Iceland Airwaves and his music has previously been featured in Q Magazine, Boiler Room and Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist.
"This solo project explores and unravels industrial sound palettes, usually mapped out over sparsely detailed near-contemporary classical arrangements. It's an emotive, immersive body of work" - Nialler9
"The social norms of rural Ireland and our predisposition as humans to try place things in neat boxes mean that Brian Dillon, AKA The Line has spent his time exploring the contours of these established rules, taking the road less travelled whenever possible." - District Magazine
