Brian Falduto is a professional Actor & Singer-Songwriter as well as an I.C.F. certified Life Coach.
At the age of 11, Brian was cast alongside Jack Black by casting director Ilene Starger and Golden Globe-winning director Richard Linklater in the Scott Rudin/Paramount Pictures film School of Rock as Billy, a.k.a. “Fancy Pants.” Brian returned to working on and pursuing his craft in college.
A dual-degree graduate in Theatre Performance and Arts Administration, Brian proudly calls himself an alumnus of Wagner College.
Since college, Brian has immersed himself back into the industry, working with renowned theatre organizations such as the Broadway PR firm O&MCo, the Broadway producing company Jujamcyn Theatres, the regional Paper Mill Playhouse, the Off-Broadway show Fuerza Bruta, the Venus / Adonis Theatre Festival, and the New York International Fringe Festival. He has also taken a dive into the world of Radio with various formats including 95.5 WPLJ, 77WABC on the AM dial, and Radio 103.9. However, he is specifically proud of the role he had in helping bring country music back to NYC with NASH FM 94.7, the flagship station of the now national and influential NASH brand.
Bit by the music industry bug, Brian is now a Singer-Songwriter himself, delivering heartfelt lyrics through infectious melodies. His debut, acoustic EP, “Love One Another” was released on June 13, 2017 and within 24 hours hit #94 on the US iTunes Singer-Songwriter charts. By the end of the week, it was #64 on this same chart in the UK and #31 for overall album sales on iTunes in Norway. Prior to releasing his 2018 Live Performance Session series on YouTube, Brian spent the majority of 2017 sharing his music live in concert throughout the Tri-State area and also devoted some time partnering with various non-profits including H.D.S.A. (Huntington’s Disease Society of America), S.A.G.E. (Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders), and H.E.A.R.T. (Help Educate At Risk Teens Foundation), all causes dear to his heart.
Brian was recently named one of the “20 most influential, outspoken, and optimistic individuals on the planet” by PrideLife Magazine in their 20th Anniversary #20intheir20s issue. Pride Month 2018 also brought more opportunities for Brian to continue his advocacy for the LGBTQ community with Broadway Sings for Pride at their 8th annual star-studded benefit concert and through his own efforts organizing the 1st ever NYC Pride Week LGBT Songwriter’s Night in support of The Trevor Project. Most recently, Brian has had some amazing opportunities to share his life story openly and honestly through both a self-written piece in The Advocate and a heartfelt interview with Now This News, both of which have since gone viral.
Launched in June, Brian is currently promoting his new business “Love Life,” a professional Life Coaching program in compliance with the International Coach Federation standards. Fueled by his passion for self-awareness & self-love, Brian works closely with his clients to help guide the conversation they are having with themselves about life.
Stage Two (11.2.18) is currently in development & marks Brian’s 1st ever studio album led by the debut single “Rainy Day” (8.9.18). Following this latest music project, Brian is expected to return to sunny Los Angeles for Pilot Season 2019.
