About the band
"Forget genres, just listen!"
In early 2015 Jannis Doukas and Andrew Barrett formed the Electronic Act Bryan Jones. The two musicians have known each other for many years, but come from completely different scenes. The result is a funky-modern sound of mediterranean beats, cool kicks and folky guitar breakdowns. Original riffs meet EDM and Hip-Hop. Unusual however, the way their music is created. The guitar tracks are actually recorded in their own studio, not copied from sampled songparts of others. All vocal parts are also created in good old DIY recording tradition. Andrew says: "We write songs, not just beats." And that is definitely true: real songs with real instruments and emotions. With a focus on accessibility and a genuine Crossover feel the duo generated not only a great feedback in the electronic scene, but also seem to have a truly magnetic effect on the pop world.
Andrew "Brian" Barrett, the englishman from the metalcamp has already played concerts with Rammstein, TSOL, Iron Maiden or the punk legends Pennywise. In Bryan Jones, he is responsible for the guitar parts and vocals. Jannis "Jones" Doukas, the Greek, is the producer and responsible for all beats and instruments. Originating from the hiphop scene, Jones has already quite a name in the remix business., with his remixes of Don Goliath Thriller -. "Gangsta Girl", Roots Manuva - "Witness" Fanta 4 - "Easy" und Massive Töne - "Stress" he has claimed wide approval. As a producer Jones has helped lots of artists to achieve a fatter and clearer sound.
To continue the successful launch of their collaboration, the duo is currently in the studio working on new material.
