BRYAN BELLER


Bryan Beller has maintained a multi-faceted career as a bassist, composer, writer and clinician for over 20 years, earning his reputation as a uniquely talented yet supremely tasteful team player for instrumentally-minded artists. He’s been Joe Satriani’s touring bassist since 2013, and tracked several cuts on Satch’s Shockwave Supernova album; 2018 will see Beller join Satriani for his What Happens Next/G3 world tour, also featuring John Petrucci, Uli Jon Roth and Phil Collen. In the power super-trio The Aristocrats (with uber-players Guthrie Govan on guitar and Marco Minnemann on drums) he’s a part of one of the hottest acts in rock/fusion today; their latest release Tres Caballeros (2015) dropped jaws around the world. He was Steve Vai’s choice for the 2009 live CD/DVD Where The Wild Things Are, and he also toured and recorded in the “band” Dethklok, a tongue-in-cheek extreme metal band borne of the hit Cartoon Network “Adult Swim” show Metalocalypse. He’s been a musical partner of freak/genius guitarist Mike Keneally (Frank Zappa) for over 20 years and 10 albums. On his own, Beller’s released three solo albums (2003’s View, 2008’s Thanks In Advance, and 2001’s Wednesday Night Live) and an instructional DVD to widespread acclaim, and he’s currently working on a two-disc progressive concept album, his first solo work in 10 years. As a pure player, a masterclass clinician (sponsored by Mike Lull Basses, Gallien-Krueger Amps & D’addario Strings), a former Contributing Editor for Bass Player Magazine, and a former VP of SWR bass amps, Beller brings a global perspective to the world of bass.

And here it is, the cover of the fourth Aristocrats studio album, "You Know What...?". Release date is set for June 28! More details below...Our fourth studio album, “You Know What…?” is complete! This might just be our most ambitious release yet. During the writing and recording of this album we feel like we inspired each other as songwriters and musicians to do things we've never done before as a band. Yet still, it's totally, completely an Aristocrats album. We think it may be the coolest thing we've done yet and we can’t wait for you to hear it! “You Know What…?” will be released on June 28th, with pre-sales available in early June. Whether you prefer a physical product, digital download or streaming, we’ve got you covered. And continuing our Aristocratic tradition of illustrated artwork, Graphic Artist Hajo Müller has created this awesome cover art for us. We’ll be sharing some audio clips and other details with you soon so make sure you check in on us here, or if you want to be certain you’ll receive news of everything Aristocrats-related you can sign up to our mailing list: www.reverbnation.com/page_object/join_mailing_list/artist_6281141 ...

I will have a lot to say about this very soon. For right now, I’m just stunned, elated, exhausted and grateful.

I want to speak with Francis Dunnery's accent, just for a day. Maybe at Aristocamp I'll learn how to do it. ... See MoreSee Less

Guess what? Michael Manring will be a guest instructor at The Aristocamp! I've been a fan and admirer of Michael for so many years - one of the few *truly* unique voices on the instrument. He does so many things I could never dream of doing - it's almost like he bends time and physics on the bass! And it's always in a beautiful, shimmering manner. Plus, his mental/spiritual approach is very enlightening. It's my honor to have him joining our little shindig up near Woodstock, NY on June 18-21. Please go to www.aristocamp.com for more information! ... See MoreSee Less
