Bryan Knight began his solo career in 1982, leading to the development of his innovative one man band, Knight Flight. As a solo performance artist, Bryan saw the advantages of authentic live performances combining vocals, synth keyboards, midi bass, & foot operated digital drums. This key-based one man band instrument configuration proved to be an impressive platform to deliver versatile and dynamic live performances.
Bryan's successful one man band creation, Knight Flight, expanded into a dynamic duo during the mid-nineties with the addition of female vocalist and keyboardist, Kathryn Deuchet. After performing across the USA from coast to coast, Bryan's Knight Flight Duo spanned the world, touring internationally through 23 countries and island nations throughout Europe, the French & Italian Rivieras, Mediterranean Sea ports, Caribbean Sea ports, along with an extended tour of Japan/Okinawa. Bryan's Knight Flight Duo resided and performed on board the fabulous 5-star cruise ship, the Windsurf, the world's largest sailing yacht.
Bryan's Knight Flight Duo also resided and performed in Okinawa, Japan at the renowned 5-star Manza Beach Hotel (host to the 2000 G8 summit). While living in Okinawa, Bryan also performed two to three shows per night on stage as featured front man for an in-house show band comprised of international artists at an exclusive private dinner club venue.

What does Bryan say regarding his live musical performances as a 21st Century one man band?
" My live looping station capability helps me create magical musical wizardry. It provides me with the performance freedom to build up songs in real-time, to create extensive solos, and it allows me to flow with greater spontaneity and musical expression. And it's always so much fun for me when I can switch back and forth between playing piano, guitars, synth keys, keyboard bass, and drums during the course of a song. "
" I love Sixties music! The Beatles were really my true musical mentors. I grew up absorbing and playing Beatle tunes. It was my most important musical training of all. With such time-less melodies and wonderful songs, I always genuinely connect to the pure joy of performing my music, and inevitably, so do my audiences and fans."
