Cru The Dynamic

Cru The Dynamic

Born and raised in and around New York City, Steve Bryant was exposed to a wide variety of music at a very young age by his parents, who are both avid music lovers. They encouraged him to develop his own tastes, and Steve quickly built a large collection of hip-hop cassette tapes. In high school, he fell in love with jazz & soul, which became a passion and lifelong pursuance. While studying jazz in college, steve was given the nickname Cru Jones, due to his love of the movie Rad. It was also here in college that young Cru was introduced to music production and started making beats on his friend's Roland MC-303. Although trained in jazz performance, Steve's production and playing styles are now more deeply rooted in hip-hop & drum&bass. In addition to releasing and performing music as a solo artist, Steve is also the drummer for many notable acts including electronic beatsmith Eliot Lipp, Michna & Raw Paw (ghostly international), legendary New York hip-hop group Dujeous, the jazz/electronica collective Boomclique, and indie-tronica phenom Little Star Dweller. He was also the drummer and one of the creative forces behind rock/electronica crossover band Benzos, releasing two critically acclaimed albums before disbanding in 2008.
Stay tuned for new tunes & shows in 2012!

Hints are Collin Lewis, Garrett Morin, Matthew Fisher and Wyeth Hansen. They are from Brooklyn.

We Can't Enjoy Ourselves

There once was a band in New York called We Can't Enjoy Ourselves. They were young, energetic, and happy; one day they abandoned their matronly motown shuffle for the sake of a younger genre; they loved, but they were not loved. Their lives ended in disaster.
