Hey Yinz Guys!

Bryan has been making music in Western Pennsylvania since 1997.  He ties his unique appreciation for a diversity of styles to his work; a work that has elements of classic Country, Appalachian roots, Alt Country, Americana, Political, Traditional and Protest Folk. Saying his first love is and will always be punk rock, its obvious to the initiated that he delivers a punk rock sense of passion into his work. He is Union Ironworker, Arborist and  musician. This combination fuels him, and his lyrics, with a firm sense of blue collar pragmatism. One part Prine, two parts Guthrie, a dash of Cash, a drop of Strummer, and garnished with Branan; Bryan's songs run the gambit from introspective to downright silly. Bred in Pittsburgh- his self proclaimed style "Coal Dust Country, Rustbelt Rock and Soul, Rhythm and Booze"  typifies this diverse mix but also showcases a witty, impassioned and edgy Steel Town Troubadour.

There are no upcoming events right now.
