Potvin began guitar lessons at the age of 13 in Victoria, B.C. His family re-located to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan where he continued his music studies. In 1984, Bryan, along with Jay Semko, Don Schmid and Merl Bryck formed The Northern Pikes. The band signed a world-wide recording contract with Virgin Records in the winter of 1986. Their seven-album catalogue sold in excess of 1 million units globally and garnered the band eight Juno nominations. In 1993, the group took a six-year hiatus, citing fatigue. With fellow band member Jay Semko, Potvin co-wrote the theme for the television series Due South.

From 1994 to 2000, Potvin was the A&R manager for PolyGram in Canada. He worked with such artists as Tegan & Sara, Duane Steele, Finger Eleven, Zuckerbaby and The Barstool Prophets. Potvin released his first solo recording project, Heartbreakthrough, in July 2000. The song "Read Between The Lines" was nominated for Best New Rock/Alternative Recording at the Canadian Radio Music Awards. The Northern Pikes re-united shortly afterwards to begin touring a greatest hits collection issued by Virgin Records. The band recorded three independent albums: Live 2000, Truest Inspiration and It's A Good Life between 2000 and 2003.
