Still in his 20s, Patrick Bartley has been acclaimed for both a sweeping command of the jazz repertoire and the capability to electrify audiences on either saxophone or clarinet. After graduating from The Manhattan School of Music, the Florida native stayed on in New York, where he quickly became in demand for playing in genres from jazz and blues to rock. He has been featured with Jon Batiste on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, played with Wynton Marsalis at Jazz at Lincoln Center and in Rock and Rock Hall of Famer Steve Miller's annual blues concerts.
In addition, he has written and produced tributes to jazz legends such as John Coltrane and Cannonball Adderly at major venues and jazz festivals.
Continuing a family legacy of music and education, Bryan Carter combines elite-level drumming and bandleading with a quest for breaking new ground in jazz and beyond. While he has performed with numerous top names such as McCoy Tyner and Kurt Elling, his own Bryan Carter and The Young Swangers band has traveled internationally with the mission to bring jazz to young audiences in non-conventional settings. Another of his projects, Jazz at Pride is
a trailblazing initiative to encourage greater diversity and openness for LGBTQ jazz artists.
Bryan also teaches at jazz workshops at schools and universities, and is a founding teaching artist for Jazz at Lincoln Center's Jazz for Young People program.

He has accompanied the stars of Broadway's Hamilton, performed on national television and has gained acclaim as not only one of the leading young musicians on the jazz scene, but for his innovative concepts as a composer, bandleader and producer. His Four by Four is an octet that blends a jazz and string quartet, while Circuit Kisser is an ensemble combining bass and drums with five synthesizers to produce unique electronic and jazz harmonies.
