I got my first accordion in 1950 when I was 5 years old. Played accordion for many years and took up the organ in 1965. The 'group' era had begun and my interest moved to the 'pop' music of the day and I played guitar in a group called the 'Beetles' - alas not the real ones. First liaison with Ian Muir was in 1980 when I produced and engineered Ian's first solo recording - 'Ian Muir's Welcome'. Now I mainly play drums with the trio but for broadcasts and bigger functions it's the 2nd accordion.
Most of my playing nowadays is with Charlie Kirkpatrick where I play keyboard in the trio.
Following about 12 years producing albums under the Ayrespin label, I set up Bryansroom in 1991.
I retired from 49 years of work in May 2010. All my working life I was an engineer working for companies that supplied pipes and fittings to the Water Industry, the last 40 being involved in Sales.
Jean and I were married in 1965 and have two sons Bryan and Kevin.
Essentially Bryansroom is a facility set up to encourage those who might not get a recording contract from a fully professional company but who have a talent that should be displayed to a wide audience.
All of the artists appearing here are of the highest standard, producing music which is the best of its genre.
