Biography

If Nirvana and the Beatles had a baby it would sound like Bryan when he tries to escape his crib. This critically acclaimed and world renowned alternative rock singer/songwriter from Charlotte, NC is full of fun energy and catchy songs!

Bryan Bielanski (guitars/vocals) began performing in Charlotte, NC while still in high school with his pioneering 90s grunge band Angwish. Since then he has played over 1000 shows in 45 of the 50 United States, 19 different countries abroad, including world class cities like New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, London, Berlin, Paris, Amsterdam, Vienna, Budapest, Brussels, Athens, Bangkok and Hong Kong. Some of his other accomplishments include charting at # 89 on National College Radio in December 2016 with his band's album "United States of Angwish" (engineered by world famous punk legend Steve Albini of Big Black), played to an audience of over 100,000 in his hometown and won the "Best Alternative Rock Band" 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 that Bryan constructed himself. Many listeners claim the 2 piece band Angwish sound like a 5 piece band after hearing their live performance. The songs range in style from jangly 60's British Invasion rock to the punk of the 70's, alternative rock of the 90's and pop music of today. Bryan pours his heart out with his lyrics in each and every song drawing from all his life experiences from the ecstatic to the tragic. Nobody can question the sincerity and intensity when Bryan performs.

Bryan's new solo 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.
