Brian is the co-founder of two very successful bands over the years; you may have heard them… CREED and ALTER BRIDGE.
Brian is from Fort Walton Beach, FL. and was attracted to music at an early age. He began playing his father’s drums and quickly became obsessed with the rhythm sections of bands such as Led Zeppelin, Rush, The Who and Iron Maiden. Luckily, his father was not too happy with Brian sneaking his drums off for gigs and eventually bought him a Bass. Brian was attending college and playing in bar bands at Florida State when he met and joined a band later named Creed. He never looked back.
In 2004 Creed disbanded but released a fourth album in 2009, Full Circle. The three original members went on to form Alter Bridge in 2004 with a new frontman, Myles Kennedy. In late 2013 the band released their fourth and most epic recording to date, Fortress. Brian weaves his own kind of magic with his detuned presence and smooth, soulful basslines with a definitive edge.
