Born in the Summer of 1986, Brynen Sosa’s passion for creativity started young. He was banging out songs on a toy piano as early as 3, and ﬁrst picked up the Guitar at age 6. Of course he wouldn’t get good at writing songs until about 15 years of age. It was then that he discovered the music of Yes, which he considers a life changing experience: “I’d heard amazing music before that from artists young and old, but Yes made me realize Music wasn’t just cool sounds, it could be beautiful Art. Rock didn’t have to always be crass, it could be sophisticated also. Steve Howe, in particular opened my eyes fully to what one man could do on the Guitar. He was a total renaissance man! Going from Jazz to Country to Psychedelic to Classical to full-blown shred in the space of an 8 minute piece! I knew then, that I had to be as eclectic and technically proﬁcient as that guy! A path I am still on and working towards to this day”
After this epiphany, Brynen Sosa has dedicated his life into creating great music and all the while pushing himself on the Guitar and as a Vocalist as well. Culling inspiration from anything that comes into his radar, Sosa’s tastes are wide and far-reaching. “I’m just as inspired by Frank Zappa as I am Frank Sinatra. Kurt Cobain and Trent Reznor, for example, are quite diﬀerent aesthetically, but they had the same sort of unﬂinching approach to their respective crafts. I strive for the same uncompromising vision. Music has a common thumbprint to all of it. If you listen with the right kind of ears, you’ll pick up on the commonalities.”
He formed Mythology in March of 2007, and his life was never quite the same since. At the time, he didn’t know he could even lead a band properly. But jumping in with both feet ﬁrst, he soon found he was a ﬁsh in water. Striving for a band that equally showcased its members, but also focused on heavy ensemble playing, Mythology was a vehicle in which he could create his own Musical language: “I never wanted Mythology to be the ‘Brynen Sosa Show’. When other artists do that, it usually bores me to tears. I wanted to write songs that featured me as the main guy, but had a lot of other spotlights for other players to stretch out and go a little nuts. The result is my own personalized Musical dialect. The vernacular is a work in progress!”
Brynen has composed and arranged songs going as far back elementary school, and loves to collaborate with others on projects. He has worked with several bands from his teen years to now. Currently, he is working on a Comedy Rock album with his former high school band The Big Bad Balonies, he recently joined Baroque Rock band Fair Panic as the live guitarist, and has an extensive solo repertoire. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his wife, dog, cat, and chickens in his humble abode in Northern New Jersey.
