Imagine if Nirvana and the Beatles had a kid.
According to his bio, that kid would be North Carolina singer and songwriter Bryan Bielanski.
And if you’re not convinced, you can catch Bielanski and his positive, upbeat original music at 6 p.m. May 19 at the Golden Moon Speakeasy.
As part of his busy 90-stop Super Happy Fun Time II tour, Bielanski says he’s excited to be in Golden and especially intrigued by performing in a venue as cool as a speakeasy.
He said he’s also excited to be touring and around people again.
An accomplished artist and former frontman for a punk band, Bielanski launched his solo career in 2020.
He said traveling solo is a lot easier than life on the road with the band got a little crazy and it was “time to let it go.”
So he did.
And just as he set out on his first solo venture, the pandemic came.
“I was in the middle of my tour and was in Arizona when everything shut down,” he said.
Not sure what would happen next, he took refuge in several national parks along the way.
Equipped with a cell phone and a lot of time on his hands, Bielanski lived in his car, wrote music, and made videos during the quarantine.
He’d play songs and ask viewers for donations.
When asked if he had any regrets, he answered with a definite no.
In fact, he said he drew much of the inspiration for several new songs from his time in the forest.
His song “Elf Girlfriend” is a perfect example,” he said. “It’s kind of my goofy, positive spin on a supernatural forest creature.”
Said Bielanski of his upcoming performance in Golden, “be ready for some surprises.”
His three-hour performance will include songs from his last album Super Happy Fun Time II, but he said he does plan to cover other songs as well.
