is an up and coming musician
based in New Orleans.
Bryce came to music late in life (17) for a musician, after meeting a local jazz master bass player by chance. At the time Bryce was at a crossroads, as his life was starting to go the wrong direction. The music and his faith turned it back in the right direction.
After a year of intense practice/study/and international travel, Bryce moved to New Orleans to attend Loyola University and study with some of New Orleans’ best musicians. Though clearly behind the curve initially, hard work soon help Bryce catch up.
Since moving to New Orleans Bryce has performed with groups led by a vast array of artists such as Roland Guerin, Matt Perrine, Antione Diel, Jameel Sharif, Shannon Powell, George Porter Jr., Dwight Fitch Jr., Galactic, Ike Stubblefield, the Dukes of Dixieland, Wessell “Warmdaddy” Anderson, Geoff Clapp, the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra (LPO), the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra (NOJO), the Uptown Jazz Orchestra (UJO), amongst others.
Performance highlights include: James Brown’s funeral celebration in Harlem, a performance on the Great Wall of China and the Forbidden City, the reopening’s of the Harrah’s Theatre and the Blue Nile in New Orleans, as well as countless other local gigs with friends.
His compositions have been featured on Television- NCIS/New Orleans, Radio-WWOZ, with a Children’s Book Set to release soon.
Recently Bryce has begun to lead his own groups in town after exclusively supporting others. He recently brought his band to the Savannah Jazz Festival to critical acclaim. He expect to release his first album in Summer 2019.
