Bryan Anderson -
I'm Bryan Anderson, a contemporary jazz bassist, recording artist, and producer, born and raised on the vibrant west side of Baltimore. With 11 albums to my credit, my music is all about creating "groove music" that goes beyond bass and resonates with listeners from all walks of life.
My musical influences are deeply rooted in the works of jazz legends like Jeff Lorber, Spyro Gyra, Kirk Whalum, Marcus Miller, and Bob James. Their artistry inspires me to infuse my compositions with a diverse blend of island vibes, Latin flavors, soulful melodies, and funky rhythms. Through my music, I aim to deliver a captivating experience that speaks to the heart and gets people moving.
Growing up in Baltimore, surrounded by a rich musical landscape, I discovered my passion for the bass guitar at a young age. I immersed myself in the city's eclectic music scene, allowing its sounds and rhythms to shape my musical instincts and refine my skills. The west side of Baltimore holds a special place in my heart as the birthplace of my artistic journey.
