Brynner Agassi: drummer and producer
At the age of four Brynner Agassi picked up his first set of drumsticks and never put them down. A native Californian, he was exposed to a variety of music at a very young age. His tutelage in music began at home through his father’s music, international legendary Assyrian singer, Evin Agassi, who is an innovator in his field and has revolutionized Assyrian music.
It was this background that led Brynner to become a leader in a new style of drumming, that introduced off time signatures, double bass drum playing, and a fuse between different genres of music. A versatile drummer, Brynner performed a variety of styles (rock, pop, hip-hop, funk and jazz). However, it was influences from drummers and producers such as Dave Weckl, Robert Noghli, Trent Reznor, Omar Hakim, Bob Rock, Lars Ulrich, Alan Parsons, Miles Davis, Chad Smith, Dennis Chambers, and many other musicians that motivated him to create his own distinguished musical sound, and drumming technique.
Since 2006 Brynner had been focusing his musical attention towards studio sideman work, as well as producing in the Los Angeles area, working with artists such as Billy Zanker, Jeremy Hatcher, Brooke Mitchell, Young Mozart, Damon Lord, Chamber Road, Amber-Rose, Bass virtuoso’s Alan Mehlhaf and Greg Cash, along with many other bands as a drummer and producer.
Brynner’s work can also be heard on national television stations such as MTV, CBS, and CW network.
In 2007 Brynner created the band “The Sovernty”. A one man project, Brynner created songs that projected a musical journey into industrial rock, which as Brynner explains, “I wanted the listener to make up how the song makes them feel”. In May of 2009 The Sovernty released its debut album “Turning the Page”, which includes 11 tracks with deep routed lyrics, blustering guitar work, and a new and innovative sound to the industrial scene.
In April of 2009, prior to The Sovernty’s debut album release, the album was reviewed by Fabryka (industrial/rock magazine in Denmark). Brynner, along with the debut album were held in high regards. The debut album was compared to the sounds of NIN, Collide, and A Perfect Circle, while Brynner’s production and sound was also compared to that of Trent Reznor.
Currently Brynner is working with pop artist Brooke Mitchell on a collaboration of music that will range between industrial rock & pop. The album has no release date.
