Brian was introduced to drumming at a very early age by his father, Ray Brian, who was an in-demand session drummer in the 60s. His father once played him a video of Buddy Rich which Brian describes as a "defining moment of his musical education" and introduced him to jazz drumming.
He was the live drummer for the "MantaRay Tour" which consisted of TV appearances, festivals and a world tour.
In September 2008 Brian played on a Siouxsie Sioux DVD called Finale: The Last Mantaray and More Show recorded at London's "Club KoKo" which was released in May 2009. It charted at #4 in the BBC Radio 1 Music DVD Chart on the 24.05.2009.
Brian also works as a session drummer and has recently been recording for the band Motorcade. He tours extensively across the world with many bands and has also started to take drum clinics and workshops across the UK and Europe.
