Bryan says, "My newest solo configuration actually switches between (a.) singing while playing multiple instruments live (as a genuine one-man-band) and (b.) creating live-looped recordings in real-time while performing, and (c) playing extended solos on the guitar or keyboards and adding synth instruments & drum sounds into the live loops, creating a unique and powerful instant live back up band."
"My traditional midi-keyboard based one-man-band, combined with live loop station capabilities, allows me to shift during the course of a song from playing multiple keyboards over to playing lead instrumental solos with guitar, piano, or synth keys (backed-up by the same music I was previously performing only a few seconds earlier). I can also add drums, percussion, or other contributing instrumental parts into a song's performance using the loop station "
" Live looping station provides the freedom to create extensive solos, to flow along with greater spontaneity, and to foster a deeper connection to my musical expression. And when I genuinely connect to the joy of playing music, inevitably so do my audiences and fans."
