Biography

Ancient Mariner is the collective title of works of American instrumentalist Brian Beyke. Brian is an American instrumental (pseudo-ambient/pseudo-fingerstyle) solo guitarist, who began writing in Louisville, Kentucky in 2006. Brian relocated to Cincinnati, Ohio in 2004 for college and while on summer break started writing his first electric, looping style songs he’s come to be known for.

Brian quickly gained recognition for his live show where it was shown he could perform all the songs layered with multiple guitar and percussion tracks with out accompaniment. Brian’s trademark was his pedalboard which consisted of many loopers and guitar effect pedals that helped him shape his atmospheric and soundtrack-esque sound. He was most known on the internet through many musicians forums for his large, and neatly organized pedalboard which got him and his music international attention.

In Spring 2008 Brian traveled to many locations in Brazil playing guitar with his school’s concert choir, and had his first chance to share his music in person internationally.

Three years of playing his solo electric guitar style and Brian had never put out any recordings. He made scratch demos in his room which made their way to the social networks such as virb, purevolume, and myspace. Two “release” were titled, but never released.
