Bryan and his first high school band won the senior talent show at East High School in 1988 and as a result were invited to a two week band camp put on by a major label. But Bryan was obligated to serve in the US Army and could not attend. While in the Army and in Germany Bryan became heavily involved in the Eurpoean Goth scene. Artists such as The Sisters of Mercy and Fields of the Nephilim were influential as well as the Nine Inch Nails album 'Pretty Hate Machine'. Bryan completed his military service and was honorably discharged in 1991. Bryan took a year off to travel Europe and afterward bought his first professional keyboard (the venerable Ensoniq TS-12) and was introduced to sequencing. Bryan spent the next couple of years composing before being invited to audition for the keyboardist position in the band Shadowplay in late 1994. After joining the band the name was changed to 'Down By Dawn'. Ten months later and right after playing with Indian Rope Burn and opening for Sister Machine Gun, Down By Dawn disintegrated. Then in 1996 Bryan joined 'Insect', again as a keyboard player. Insect opened for Third Eye Blind and Dink and played for packed venues including the Odeon and the main stage at the Cleveland Agora. For financial reasons Bryan left 'Insect' in 1997 and formed SET TO BURN. SET TO BURN has had many members over the years and including Scott Kaczmarek who went on to Disown, Alan Siebert of Abdullah, Jim Curtis of The Terry Barret Band, and Chris Wasem of Shadowplay and Fates Warning. Having spent almost two decades playing, writing, singing, and producing Bryan is making the push of a lifetime. SET TO BURN is adding new members and planning a new album release for late 2008. The time is ripe for SET TO BURN.
