Bryan has been hired for live and/or studio work by over 150 artists as diverse as: Rachael Yamagata, Judd & Maggie, Pat Dinizio (Smithereens), Bobby Vega (Tower of Power, Santana, Sly Stone), Warren Zanes (Del Feugos), Walking Sticks (SHAED), Jimmie’s Chicken Shack, Shane Gamble, Mary Prankster, Pressing Strings, The Temptations (Damon Harris), David Cassidy, The Supremes, Bibi Bourelly, Kelly Bell Band, Yvonne Elliman, Thelma Houston, Mama Jama, David Pack (Ambrosia), Rita Coolidge, Native Run, Stephen Bishop, and countless others.
For 30 years, he’s been an equally sought after instructor. An artist with PRS Guitars since 2005, Bryan is also the primary demonstrator and clinician for the prestigious brand. Since 2012, PRS Guitars has utilized his skills for YouTube product videos and live demonstrations and clinics all over the world. He is one of the lead instructors of the Maryland Hall & PRS 2nd Annual Interactive Camp for Aspiring Museums.
When he’s not on the road or playing with one of the bands listed above, he can be found close to home doing solo gigs or performing with his two talented sons.
