1) Recording Pop/Rock Artist BMV, was born as Brynjar Mar Valdimarsson on December 12, 1978 in Reykjavik, Iceland.
The Singer/Songwriter was introduced to music at a very early age through his father’s love of heavy metal and ability to play the guitar.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Brynjar taught himself how to play guitar, and before anyone knew it, was composing his own music by the age of 12-13, as well as playing in bands with other local musicians.
In 1995, at the age of 15, and while playing with a band he and his friend named Tiramizu (Italian dessert/Cheescake, often refered to as "Heaven in mouth"), Brynjar and his band received airplay at a local rock station as well as the national radio, following his composition and release of the singles “Mountain” and “Mr. Rainman”. Inspired by this accomplishment, Brynjar pushed on, putting together yet another band called “Kenya”, and further surprised his friends and family by composing and scoring a top 40 hit he had titled, “Young and Free”.
In 1999, Brynjar began touring with a band called “The Wonders" that is until 2001, when he decided to try his hand at radio.
Brynjar reflects: “I came to a stop in my life. I felt like something was missing. It seemed all I did was give, but I wasn’t getting anything back. Radio appeared to be a really exciting field where I could learn even more about music as well as constantly be around the one thing I loved more than anything.” For the next five years, Brynjar worked as a program, music director for a media company in Iceland. The experience gained him an even greater understanding and appreciation of music.
Armed with an inside knowledge of how things worked in the industry,=2 0Brynjar, in 2007, decided to once more return to his musical compositions. This time he teamed up with US lyricist, Shirley Petrandis, also known as SJ Sinister, and US co-writer/lyricist, Josh Zandman. Brynjar traveled to New York to record a solo album, “The Beginning”, with engineer/producer, Ken Lewis, and his assistant Brent Kolotalo.
“The Beginning” has already landed BMV several hit singles in Europe, including "Forget About Me", which charted in about 13 countries and was included on The World Chart Show, "Endlessly", which charted in about 17 countries, and "Runaway" which also charted all around Europe and charted number 1 in Macedonia.
To date, the talented BMV, Brynjar Mar Valdimarsson is currently touring Iceland with plans to extend his tour to Europe in the upcoming months.
2) BMV aka Brent Michael Verdinek has been DJing at clubs and parties all over the USA for the past 15 years. A resident of Youngstown Ohio, a place where the entire music scene is dominated by top 40 music and no EDM scene, BMV ventured out into the world and stumbled upon the party scene at the age of 16. Immediately falling in love with Electronic Music in all forms, especially Bassline/Speed Garage/Electro House, he quickly began to buy up every track, every CD, mix tape, and then eventually shaping all that musical knowledge into his own style of DJing and producing. Now 15 years later he has furthered his love for the music and scene by producing his own tracks to play from House to Electro, Fidget, to all kinds of dirty, grimey basslines. BMV is signed to 7 major record labels and has tracks available worldwide at all music and EDM sites. SO GO DANCE! ENJOY!
