Teen Phenoms? Exactly!!! �the heck� is the brainchild of guitar prot�g� Bryan Steeksma. Bryan started out playing as a four year old on his father�s guitar strumming along to Fred Penner while watching TV. At Five he was doing school recitals holding the guitar on his lap � he was too small to hold it upright. By the time Bryan was 15 years old he had been playing provincial fairs, and jamming with blues cats in the legendary �Yale Hotel� in Vancouver. The late and legendary blues organist Robbie King said of Bryan �there is only one of these people made each year � just drive him wherever he wants to go�. Robbie is one of a long list of people who have recognized Bryan s amazing talent. Influenced by guitar greats Jimi Hendrix & Joe Satriani, Bryan has spent the better part of his childhood playing guitar in his parent�s basement, sometimes spending more than 8 � 16 hours a day for weeks at a stretch. But playing with his dad�s friends and legendary blues musicians is not where his heart lay. Bryan s unique experience had only exposed him to the world of his parents music, Hendrix, The Who, Led Zepplin, etc,etc. His parents contacted Vancouver Management Team @ TKO Entertainment, and their advice was to immediately educate Bryan on current bands, the music that Bryan s age group was listening to. As a result Bryan spent the better part of his 15th year listening to every cd released in the past year and emerged a fan of the �Foo Fighters�. Combining the guitar histrionics of legendary greats and influenced by Dave Grohl, Bryan had a starting point for �the heck�.
