An acclaimed composer and bandleader, he has four albums out featuring his own music: his debut "Present Tense", "Ludlow" (featuring Seamus BlakeDrew Gress and Mark Ferber on the Fresh Sound/New Talent label) “Fables” (featuring Seamus Blake, Orlando le Fleming and Johnathan Blake), and and his most recent release "Nightsong", a duo album with guitarist Lage Lund.

    In addition to his work as a leader, Roberts is also an original member of the Nonet led by Grammy nominee Alan Ferber, and has recorded with the group for a series of critically-acclaimed releases: "Scenes From An Exit Row", "The Compass”, "Chamber Songs" and “Roots and Transitions”.

    Bryn’s most recent project, "Nightsong", is a collaboration with the celebrated guitarist Lage Lund. They are longtime colleagues and have been playing together in different situations for over a decade, but have recently begun exploring the freedoms and possibilities of the duo format. Their varied repertoire draws from their wide influences, and includes their own original compositions, standards from the American songbook, and works by Brazilian composers.
