Preferred Retailers (** indicates OK for international
Long-time friends of both myself and Keneally,
and a great source for music by people who actually
know how to play their instruments. (Just use the search function for "beller".)
The kings of online independent music
distribution. Very kind folks as well. I actually
played in a college band with the founder, Derek.
Nice guy. Nice company.
Guitar Nine Records
Online since 1996, specializing in instrumental
guitar recordings of all shapes, sizes, and colors.
(Don't tell 'em it's a bassist's solo album.)
The Artist Shop
Long time supporters of independent music for
serious music enthusiasts. Look for a listing on the
Mike Keneally's Exowax Recordings page.
You gotta love an online retailer
whose slogan is "The Search For Extraterrestrial Fusion."
Who knew that View could qualify for such an
exciting new genre? Very interesting site to browse,
not just to shop.
Utah's progressive rock aficionado
Greg Walker has one of the most
comprehensive, internationally oriented music catalogs I've ever seen, and View
is a part of it. Click

instructions page, but don't forget to browse.
Talk about crucial support - if
it wasn't for this company's AB-4 Acoustic/Electric
Bass, three of the tunes on the album (and perhaps
the entire album) would never have seen the light
of day. All that, and they're selling the CD from
their website, too.
Go to Taylorware, click on Videos & CD's, then click on Taylor Clinician CD's.
The online retail storefront of a special division
of Favored Nations, Steve Vai's label. Not a bad place
to be, methinks.
It's their world, we all just shop in it.
& S Music
Based in the U.K., and friends
of all Zappa and muso-related music fans and artists.
Right now, the only place in the U.K. to get View
without waiting for Trans-Atlantic shipment - and
they're in stock now! Find the listing HERE

is a special place for lots of loosely connected Zappa-philes,
and the Dutch demand has been significant enough to
warrant a special deal with one of Holland's most well-known
and respected online music stores. If you're in The
Netherlands, now get domestic shipment of View
just by clicking here.
Australian guitar music enthusiast and Fret Net radio DJ Steve Passiouras took it upon himself to launch a digital music store after his listeners starting asking where they could buy what they were hearing. If you're an Aussie, why not support a local bloke? If you're not, I'm thinking he'll still sell to you.

Official Promotional Copy (aka H.Y.P.E.)
known as a uniquely talented yet tasteful hired gun
bassist for the more adventurous rock guitarists of
recent times (Mike Keneally, Steve Vai, Dweezil Zappa,
Wayne Kramer), Bryan Beller ventures out on his own
with his debut solo album, View.
from aspiring to bass heroism, Beller instead builds
a carefully crafted emotional tapestry of interweaving
themes and styles - a true album in the old-fashioned
sense. Drawing on influences as disparate as John Scofield
and Rage Against The Machine, Michael Landau and Pink
Floyd, Nine Inch Nails and his mentor, Mike Keneally,
the resulting body of work runs the gamut from hardcore
jazz/rock to vocal pop to world beat while somehow staying
thematically intact, all the while displaying equal
parts density and sensitivity, melody and dissonance,
tranquility and furious release.
