Brennan Dylan is a Nashville based guitar player/composer whose guitar prowess has been compared to that of Joe Satriani & Steve Vai since 2010, the year he released Bullet Ride (CD). The single War Parade, from his first professional release, spun in European dance clubs, tracking in the Top 200 for part of 2011. He has performed on bills with artists Michael Angelo Batio, DeathRiders and Gorillaz & is sponsored by Gary Kramer Guitars. His next solo project, Broken Glass (CD), was released April/12 & like Bullet Ride received positive reviews and radio play, including a CBS Radio interview which aired to 30 million listeners globally & press in Performer Magazine, NME & Guitar World.

In 2013, while living in NYC, Dylan formed Men Without Armies, a 3 piece hard rockin', guitar driven metal band. MWA released a self-titled CD in June/14 which continues to get consistent radio play & press. Radio Stations include: WAAF Fm (Boston's Rock Radio), Metal Express Radio, Rock Solid Pressure, WMFR (Metal Fortress Radio), The 365 Radio Network, Digital Revolution Radio. Press includes: Planet Mosh, Berklee Today, The Examiner, Music Connection, MetalHeads, Pure Grain Audio, Bravewords, The Guitar Buzz, Svet Guitara. The band's original drummer & bassist/vocalist decided to take a different musical journey than the one Men Without Armies is on.
