British-bred blues rock guitarist, Danny Bryant, will release his hotly tipped new studio album “Hurricane” via Jazzhaus Records in April / May.

Fans who want to get a taste of the upcoming release can download the free song “Greenwood 31” from www.dannybryant.com/free-download.

Danny-Bryant

Originally hailed as a young guitar virtuoso, and a protégé of Walter Trout, Bryant is building a formidable reputation as a leading British blues rock guitar heavyweight in his own right. Recorded as a power trio, the new album was produced by Richard Hammerton (Manic Street Preachers). The new album showcases the evolution of Bryant as guitarist and songwriter, and bursts with power-fuelled originals, groove-driven up-tempo songs, and soulful blues ballads.

“The songs are the result of hard work and have gained considerable complexity,” says Danny. This is evident not only in the melodic title track, but also with the ballad “Can`t Hold On”, not to mention the funky-bluesy “Greenwood 31”, a song that harks back to a similar urgency in the style of Jimi Hendrix mixed with the attitude of Lenny Kravitz.

Inspired by American rockers including John Hiatt and Bruce Springsteen, Bryant looks back on some of his career highlights. “Recording 2012’s live album “Nightlife” was a milestone,” reflects Danny. “Over the past few years we’ve constantly toured Europe, and in doing so, we have broken new ground both musically and geographically.”

Danny Bryant 'Hurricane' Album Preview

Recorded as a power trio, the new album was produced by Richard Hammerton (Manic Street Preachers). The nine songs showcase the evolution of Bryant as both guitarist and songwriter. The album bursts with power-fueled originals, groove-driven up-tempo songs, and soulful blues ballads.

Danny retreated to the rural solitude of the county of Cornwall in the southwest of the UK to record the new album. “It was just like time travel,” says Danny. “Since there was almost no phone reception or internet connection, I spent between 15-18 hours a day concentrating on nothing but the music.”

The difference to the previous studio album “Just As I Am” (2010) is based mainly in the production. Says Danny – “The songs are the result of hard work and have gained considerable complexity.” This is evident not only in the melodic title track, but also with the ballad “Can’t Hold On” not to mention the funky-bluesy “Greenwood 31” – a song that harks back to a similar urgency in the style of Jimi Hendrix mixed with the attitude of Lenny Kravitz.

Inspired by American rockers including John Hiatt and Bruce Springsteen, Bryant looks back on some of his career highlights. Reflects Danny – “Recording the live album “Nightlife”(2012) was a milestone. Over the past few years we’ve constantly toured Europe, and in doing so, we have broken new ground both musically and geographically.”

The results are evident from the reaction from the audiences. “In the beginning, people were primarily coming to the concerts to see a young guitar player,” says Danny, “but these days I think they’re coming because of songs, voice and overall performance.”
