The pop influence in Brian Van Meter's music can be easily heard in the catchy, upbeat melodies, energetic rhythms, and singable choruses. His physical appearance also clearly bears a pop influence: he often takes to the stage wearing oversized plastic glasses, skinny jeans, and an iconic T-shirt. (not sure what he wears is relevant to a bio - but whatever lol )
The rock influence in Brian Van Meter's music is easily heard in both the guitar and percussion. Although he is a gifted acoustic guitarist, Van Meter incorporates electric guitar into his more rock-intensive songs, heavily amplifying and distorting the instrument and adding reverberation effects. These songs often feature a heavier percussion section with increased use of both the cymbals and the snare drum.
