How we started

Our Story

The start of any good party begins as it does with the prematch. The concept that would eventually became who and what we do today began at Princes Place, known amongst friends as the get together spot before heading out to the festivals. What better way to get people in the right mood for the event than having really good music playing at the predrinks and in the shuttles on the way to the venue.

As the season went on, our playlist became many playlists and our friends who performed at the events sent us music that they were going to play. And naturally, the idea of sharing these teaser playlists with everybody began. With a little initiative, every week, we checked in with the DJs playing in upcoming events to get their track ID suggestions. A simple website was thrown together with all our the playlists, events and DJs relevant to our local scene; and slowly we built it up over the years.

The fateful year that is and was twenty-twenty has had devastating consequences for people and businesses across the board. The events & entertainment industry in this regard was hit especially hard by the global lockdown. Downtown became a ghost town as bars and clubs closed indefinitely. The outdoor festival circuit was postponed and eventually became written off in its entirety. Streaming platforms have provided the opportunity for artists to stay relevant through all of this; but we admit that despite the fact that streaming is here to stay it remains a substitute for the real deal.

Princes Place. Where it all started.

After listening to what artists and industry leaders have had to say about the scene’s future, we asked ourselves what could be done to help. How might we have a positive impact on the scene through all of this. And that’s when we decided to launch BRYSONS Finder™ a new platform easy to access to free to use for everybody. A space where artists can showcase their sound, promoters can push their events and music lovers can explore and follow the music nearby.

We’ve just started on this new journey, and we hope this new platform and its features will bring people back together.

We do what we do for you
