Bryce Dessner is a member of The National and co-founder of the Brassland label, alongside Alec Hanley Bemis and his twin brother Aaron Dessner. Together Aaron & Bryce have collaborated on projects such The Long Count and music for films such as Transpecos and Big Sur.

Apart from his regular collaborations with his brother, Bryce alone contributed music to the major motion picture The Revenant and is curator for the Music Now Festival held annually for over a decade in his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio. He is a founding member of Clogs and has collaborated on projects as a performer and composer with some of the most prominent names in modern music including Sufjan Stevens, the Bang on a Can All-Stars, Philip Glass, Erik Friedlander and Nico Muhly.

Increasingly, Bryce has gained renown for his solo compositions, and is quickly becoming a fixture of the programming and commissioning schedules at classical concert halls and art centers in all the world's major cities.
