Since completing his Bachelor of Music at the Australian Institute of Music in 2012 Bryce has also been in demand as a composer. His music can be heard in the indie Aussie video games Particulars and Birdsketball and he wrote the score for the hit true crime podcast series Snowball (ABC's most downloaded podcast of 2019). In 2016 Bryce was nominated for a Sydney Theatre Award for his sound design in Sport For Jove’s production of Antigone.
"Halliday is charismatic and open with the audience, creating a captivating atmosphere for the show. His songs embrace a diverse range of sounds, from heartfelt ballads to comic, up-tempo piano numbers. He even incorporates a soundboard, which adds an extra sonic layer to his compositions."- Aussie Theatre
Before moving to the USA, Bryce worked at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation where he produced several hit comedy podcasts. He was behind the stand up comedy series Alice Fraser Trilogy which topped Apple Podcasts’ list of “Best Australian Podcasts of 2018”. He was also the lead producer of the comedy documentary Finding Drago, which became a cult hit that spawned a second season and a spin off web series. The second season Finding Desperado won the Silver Award for “Best Entertainment Podcast” at the 2021 Australian Podcast Awards.
