Bryan Beller has maintained a frenetic, multi-faceted
career as a bassist, composer, writer and clinician
for over thirteen years, earning a reputation as a uniquely
talented yet supremely tasteful hired gun bassist for
adventurous rock guitarists and singer/songwriters alike.
He was Steve Vai's choice on bass for the live CD/DVD
Sound Theories - a collaboration with Holland's renowned
Metropol Orchestra - and toured worldwide with Vai throughout
2007. Other recent touring work includes the "band"
Dethklok, a tongue-in-cheek extreme metal band borne
of the hit Cartoon Network "Adult Swim" show
Metalocalypse. He's also been a musical partner of freak/genius
guitarist Mike Keneally (Frank Zappa) for thirteen years,
ten albums, countless tours, and millions of notes.
On his own, Beller released his debut solo album, the
jazz/rock-flavored View, in late 2003 to widespread
critical acclaim, and his second album Thanks In Advance
was released in late 2008, again to rave reviews. As
a pure player, a masterclass clinician (sponsored by
Mike Lull Custom Guitars, SWR Amplification and D'addario
Strings), a Contributing Editor for Bass Player Magazine,
and a former Vice-President of SWR Sound Corporation,
Beller brings a global perspective to the world of bass.
