Brian Kesselring, a.k.a. Kicasso, is a lifelong multi-instrumentalist/singer-songwriter, composer, engineer and music producer. Starting professionally in 1986, his fascination with every style of music and his chameleon like approach to absorbing, composing, recording and producing all of these styles, has led to his unique sound. This mixture of styles has been reverberating throughout the musical community ever since. Beginning in Hollywood, then San Francisco and now finally residing in Austin, TX, his unique influence and innovative approach to music has been felt worldwide. His two albums had nationally charting radio play and international distribution with his band “Puzzlefish”. They were released on his own self-started indie record label.
After opening the first DJ school ever in San Francisco called “ObjectSpin Turntablist University”, he fell in love with teaching his innovative tips and tricks to aspiring artists. It was a big hit. People fell in love with “the KicassoMusic method”.
Still composing and performing innovative music, Brian can be seen around Austin doing surprise “sitting in” and “pop-up” performances.
His styles range from Hip-Hop, Dubstep, Funk, Jazz, Experimental, Drum-N-Bass, EDM, Rock, Metal, Ska, Country, Folk, Alternative, Classical, African and Latin World music. This mixture of musical flavors has led him into scoring music for film.
