Hello my name is Kyle Briere (Mr.SmashKAB), a Canadian musician with 14 years of experience specializing in Percussion playing a wide variety of styles most notably, Hard Rock & Metal. My influences include Danny Carey (Tool), Phil Collins, Josh Freese to name a few. I endeavor to network and work with high caliber songwriters to produce sharply written, memorable tracks.

Over the last 7 years I've produced about 120 videos for my Youtube channel and amassed 315,000 views. These videos include: Drum Covers, Gear Showcases, Original Content from my band “A Dallas Welcome”, and some session work I've done for international collaboration projects. With aspirations to add an analytical flare to my channel, you can expect that I will always be trying new things and sharing my experiences.
