Bryan Beller

Solo Artist, Bassist,
Composer, Writer, Clinician

"It's the most convenient practicing and idea-capturing tool I've used yet. I travel *constantly* and am anchored to my laptop wherever I am. Dealing with practicing used to mean setting up a whole separate station. Not anymore! Sounds pretty damned good, too. Makes you want to play more."

 

About Bryan Beller

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.
