Brant Bjork

Real Name:Brant Bjork
Profile:

Brant Bjork (born March 19, 1973) hails from Palm Desert, CA, where he began gigging at the age of 13. By high school Brant had begun Kyuss with locals Josh Homme, Chris Cockrell (later Nick Oliveri) and John Garcia (2). In 1993, Brant left Kyuss and moved to Humboldt to flip pizzas and play soccer. Too much rain moved him back to his natural habitat where he started an independent record label, El Camino Records (3) which then evolved in Duna Records (now defunct) and then in Low Desert Punk Records; played drums in hardcore punk band De-Con; and played guitar with desert legend Mario Lalli in Fatso Jetson. In 1996, Bjork hooked up again with Homme, to begin The Desert Sessions saga and work on what became Queens Of The Stone Age. However, Brant decided to take the road less traveled and rock with his surf buddies Fu Manchu, an adventure which took him into the studio for five records and around the world in four years. After few solo albums in the 00's he joined a resurrected version of Kyuss under the new monicker Kyuss Lives! (without Josh Homme). Kyuss Lives! then changed name in Vista Chino and released an album before going to hiatus. In 2014 Brant formed a new band Brant Bjork And The Low Desert Punk Band. In 2016 he released a new album, Tao Of The Devil under his name only. Since 2018 he has released several solo albums on Italian label Heavy Psych Sounds which also re-released most of his solo output that previously came out on Duna Records and Low Desert Punk Records. Since 2020 he formed band Stöner (13) with long time friend Nick Oliveri and drummer Ryan Güt which so far have put out a new record every year. A new album by Stöner (13), Boogie to Baja, is due on February 2023.
