About Bryan Cowsert
When I was in fourth grade, my mom bought me my first drum set and the fascination with music and entertaining began. I continued with the drums for the next 12 years playing in a wide variety of rock & roll cover bands. While enlisted in the U.S. Army's 10th Mountain Division, I was told that there was a band jamming at the recreation center on post and they were in need of a drummer. When I arrived, there was already a drummer sitting in and what they really needed was a vocalist. I jumped in and sang a Boston tune and began singing from that point. During my off time in the Army Infantry, I played guitar and sang to Van Halen and Queensryche.
When I received an Honorable discharge and returned home to Topeka Kansas, I found a picture of an old High School buddy in Metal Edge Magazine with the band Dreemwich. I was proud of his success and envious at the same time. As time went on, I sang in various cover bands and then one day I received a call from my friend in the magazine. He asked me if I would like to audition for Dreemwich, without hesitation I did just that. I made the audition and these guys were incredibly talented. We began to play local shows as well as some dates in Topeka, Chicago, Milwaukee, Kansas City, Boston and Michigan. Soon we were in the studio for a metal compilation called Midwest Metal Fest, some airplay followed and we received some commercial success
My fascintation and love for country music followed shortly after Dreemwich over 20 years ago. I enjoyed the energy and emotional life messages that came from the music. I began to write country songs and found myself falling deeper into the music. I began to incorporate all my musical experiences into my songwriting and have come up with a small library of tunes that I hope you will enjoy. All instruments are played by me and recorded on a small 8 track recorder.
