Biography

"Imagine Nirvana and the Beatles had a child together who became an acoustic rock singer/songwriter: that's Bryan Bielanski! Although he is inspired by some of the rock greats like Tom Petty and REM, he has a distinct musical style and songs with lyrics that make you think deep thoughts and feel like you're really alive! This critically acclaimed globetrotting singer/songwriter has been touring the US and the world for the last 9 years, having played 45 of the United States and 19 different countries abroad in support of his multiple releases (including one release charting in the CMJ alternative college radio top 100).  Recording artist Bryan Bielanski hails from Charlotte, NC, he is full of fun energy and catchy songs and he is ready to entertain you! 

Formerly of the iconic underground band Angwish, Bryan's tours have led him to perform concerts in world class cities like New York, Los Angeles, London, Berlin, Paris, Amsterdam, Vienna, Budapest, Brussels, Athens, Toronto, Bangkok and Hong Kong. Some of his other accomplishments include recording an album with world famous punk legend Steve Albini of Big Black (engineer to Nirvana, Bush, The Pixies, etc...) playing to an audience of over 100,000 in his hometown and won the "Best Alternative Rock Artist" at the 2016 Hollywood Music Media Awards.

Traveling troubadour Bryan creates his thick sound by using a specially modified guitar, numerous effects pedals and multiple amplifiers, a set up he constructed himself.  The songs range in style from 60's jangly British Invasion (note the unique Rickenbacker guitar sound) to 70's punk, 80's new wave, 90's alternative and pop music of today. Bryan pours his heart out with his lyrics in each and every song draws on deep emotions and convictions. Nobody can question the sincerity and intensity when Bryan performs.

Bryan's new album "Bryan's Super Happy Fun Time 2!" debuts spring 2022, and he will be touring indefinitely to promote the album. If you haven't taken the time to listen already then give your ears a treat and find out why audiences and critics alike have embraced Bryan's music worldwide.
