PhotoSynthesizers| Musicians

PhotoSynthesizers was formed in 2008 by guitarist Joshua Bryant and emcee Maurice “BarCodez” Jackson of Richmond, VA. The duo revels in defying definitions and expectations, artfully blending elements of rock and hip-hop that look to the past as much as the unknown future. Bryant’s instinct for complex layers of instrumentation serves as a perfect complement to Codez’s mind-bending use of language and rhyme, continually questioning the status quo.
The band’s membership consists of BarCodezon lead vocals, J. Bryant on guitar and vocals, Wade Puryear on keys and synthesizers, Billy Nguyen on turntables and mpc, Matt Goves on drums, Ben Ferell on bass, and additional vocalists, Laura Singh, Toniraye Moss, and Macy West
