Bryan Scary is a pop musician currently based out of Brooklyn, New York. His debut album, The Shredding Tears, was released by Black and Greene Records on October 31, 2006. Scary played all instruments on the album save for the drums, which were played by Jeremy Black of Apollo Sunshine. In live performance Bryan Scary plays with his band, "The Shredding Tears."
In 2007 the band launched multiple tours nationwide. In September–October 2007, the band went into the studio to record their newest album 'Flight of the Knife'. It was released April 1 on Black and Greene Records.
On May 14, 2008, 'Flight of the Knife' was chosen as the "Editor's Pick" on iTunes and skyrocketed to the top-30 albums in a day. It was also ranked No. 6 in the "Rock Albums" section as well.

Prior to releasing their latest EP, Mad Valentines, Scary signed with Brooklyn based record label, Old Flame Records. The band toured with this EP in 2009.
Bryan Scary's third full-length release and second album recorded with his band (the Shredding Tears) is titled Daffy's Elixir. It is a wild west-themed conceptual album which was funded in part by money pledged from friends and fans through Kickstarter.com. More than $16,000 was raised towards production of the album. Bryan recorded fully orchestrated demos for his band members which were then worked out in rehearsals prior to the sessions. The recording sessions for the album began in Brooklyn, NY with producer Bryce Goggin (Pavement, Phish) on February 25, 2010. Goggin had previously mixed the single "Red Umbrella" for Bryan Scary which was included on the Mad Valentines EP. Daffy's Elixir will be released April 24, 2012, on Paper Garden Records/Lavaslope Records.
In January of 2014, Bryan and his new band Evil Arrows (Bryan Scary, Everet Almond, Graham Norwood, and Adrian Perry), released the first in a series of EPs simply titled 1. As of January 2015 the band has released 5 EPs (1,2,3,4 & 5). The first 3 EPs were released as a full length LP in Japan on Rallye Records titled 1-2-3. The band has plans to release at least another 2 EPs from the original sessions which started in August 2013. All the recordings were done in a very DIY style at the band's rehearsal space in Brooklyn.
