This artist, not to be confused with the downhome banjo player of the same name, emerged from the chaotic New York music scene of the late '80s. He was a member of Machine Gun, an ensemble that named itself after one of the noisiest records of free jazz ever made, which it attempted to outdo to no great consequence, despite Bryant's strapping on of electric drums in the process. The drummer works regularly with performer and engineer Robert Musso, also a participant in the Machine Gun fire, so could perhaps be considered a member of Bill Laswell's off-Broadway outer inner circle. Bryant has produced on a pair of recordings for Johnny J. Blair, also drumming on one of them.
