BRYAN VAN DUSEN :: A BRIEF BIOGRAPHY
Bryan Van Dusen, a man of many faces, is first and foremost a lyricist. Fascinated by words and enamored by the English language at a very young age, he has always used writing and singing as a primary form of expression.
Rap music''s complex lyrical stanzas and casual manipulation of the language excited Bryan and had him writing rhymes and rapping on his own in no time. Freestyle rhyming, which consists of making up lyrics as you go, became a favorite activity, and forte, of Bryan''s. This ultimate form of expression for Bryan became a constant activity and necessary part of day-to-day life. Eventually, the desire to write and record a rap CD became the main focus for Bryan and in October of 2002, Bryan released his debut CD, Bryan Van Dusen is...Mann-E-Face.
At 28 years old, Bryan Van Dusen feels he is only just getting started and has recently finished recording his second album, "Don''t Try This At Home". He also aspires to branch out beyond rap and get into other lyrical and creative realms and most recently co-launched the Ghetto Panda fur and fashion line at Toronto Fashion Week, 2004.
BRYAN VAN DUSEN :: DON''T TRY THIS AT HOME
Although delivered in the hip hop, rhyme idiom, Bryan Van Dusen''s new CD, Don''t Try This At Home, is far from being just another rap album. With a hip urban feel, wide musical influences, dynamic beats and riveting lyrics, Bryan Van Dusen and James Stewart have combined to produce their brand of hip hop inspired pop fusion. This truly is a unique musical journey; Stewart''s production provides beats which are like finely woven tapestries serving as mini-scores for Van Dusen''s words. Don''t Try This At Home serves as a sound piece of advice for all other musicians who want to make a mark on the music scene as we know it. Ghetto Panda continues to give you the hot new vibes and keeps bringing more in 2004.
