Bryan comes from Liège in Belgium. At the age of ten, he started playing drums at primary school with Frederic Dessard who played with the famous Micheal Jones (Jean-Jacques Goldman).
In 2006, everything changed… He had always been in love with the bass guitar, even at the time it wasn't the most popular instrument to play. He spent three years being taught by Alain Rinallo (Wendy Nazaré, Benjamin Schoos, Jean-François Maljean, Christophe Maroye). He began to explore a variety of musical genres, and developed, in particular, an interest in Pop, R’n’B, Jazz and Experimental music.
Bryan formed a rock and progressive band called 'Today' with some   friends, performing locally and they produced two EPs “Your Soul” co-production   with Studio 5 and “Time R(e)volution” in full auto-production.
With the completion of this project Bryan became a freelancer,   adding Blues, Funk, 70’s Rock, Electronic music and Dubstep to his   repertoire. During this period he was also stage manager for Wendy   Nazaré.
Since 2010 Bryan has been the bass player and arranger for the Belgian pop’n’blues band 'Maybelline'. They have performed all over the country, recorded live, broadcast and on radio. He has recently join the line-up for Aprile (with Patrick Schouters on drums), a talented   young Belgian singer who has played in well-known festivals such as Francofolies de Spa, Bel’zik Festival, Fiesta City and more.
