The Bryan Titus Trio



“The Bryan Titus Trio grows up like a weed from a tangled and overgrown history of Bluegrass and American Roots Music.” One of the best “elevator speeches” we have ever heard for a band we find hard to define. But once in a while we get up early enough to make it to Hot Licks (at Live Oak) in the morning to find out what “unknown” musicians also got up early enough on a Sunday morning and want to play music for us. The real gems are around, but most of them are just not up at 8:00am. God, are we glad we got up this time. The best new artists we have heard at Hot Licks, period.


Bryan is the central voice of this trio, and tightly connected for the ride is Jeff Kranzler on upright bass and Dustin Janson on cajon and vocals. Touted as a "Postmodern Barn Dance" band they write & perform themes & melodies of yesterday with a pinch of modern irony. Behind their polished sound sits a desire to give every song the feel of things just put to paper today.

This view found it home within two elements of Bryan’s own style. His vocals are both smooth & rough, his guitar playing simultaneously elegant & primitive. He draws upon the lessons learned on his 2013 Through Hike of the Appalachian Trail; and especially the music he picked up in Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, & Virginia. Truly, an unusual commentary for a musician/graduate of the Berklee School of Music, Boston MA.

The trio recently completed a tour up the west coast from their home base of Santa Barbara to Seattle. This gutsy singer/songwriter; backed by a cookin' band, delivers a unique blend of Rock 'n Roll, Gospel, Country, Blues & Bluegrass ... all stewing in the same pot.

Please note the date change. The concert is on Friday November 10, at 8:00pm.
