The chanting stylistics of Steven Bryan’s newest ballad ‘Sing to Me’ utilize a progressive motion of energy that builds upon itself through a transmuted and incessant kick drum that grows stronger throughout the composition’s eternal fabric. This mantra has a grounded attitude that brings about a humbleness to the music while emphasizing this artist’s true authentic talents as a professional musician.
The vocals are remarkable as it provides a panache of Italian culture and essence supplemented with a gentle voice that holds distinctly within its influence, a significant amount of fortitude. The entwined drum patterns hit with precision to the designated tempo and swung in a constant gesture that gives the song a type of liveliness much like the heartbeat of consciousness. The acoustic guitar strumming patterns are lucid in relation to the other portions of the mix and remain as a persistent anchor holding the instruments in place. This is efficiently counteracted with an extremely delicate guitar execution used ingeniously through a clean guitar drive to give the song some authority, inventiveness and grime.
The string patterns support the single while invigorating all aspects into a divine performance expressing this artist’s deepest vision for music in a cohesive manner. The dynamic methods oscillated from intense acts of musicianship to elusive portions that are distinctly put in the track to give it a superfluous affect for the listening audience. Steven Bryan has a deep respect for music and “Sing to Me” is a testament to his extraordinary talent as an up-and-coming independent artist trying to wake people up to cognizant music across the unconditional medium.
YOU CAN LISTEN TO SING TO ME BY STEVEN BRYAN:
Steven Bryan effortlessly effuses Italian charm in his smooth indie rock songs with influences ranging from Bob Dylan to Thom Yorke.
Blessed with a soulful voice that alternates between smooth and rough tones, Steven fell in love with music at a very young age.
Born Francesco Dell’Orco in Milan, Italy, he grew up listening to a range of folk, rock and roll, soul, and his father’s classical music collection.
In his formative years, Steven spent quite a few summer holidays in New Jersey at his grandfather’s, who was an Italian immigrant in the USA. It was during that period that he soaked up the influence of local heroes Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, Southside Johnny and Bon Jovi.
In 1998 his first band, The Kids, were the toast of the town but it was not long before he caught the travelling bug. Landing in the UK in 2006, he played the acoustic London circuit garnering a love for all things British.
It was during an exhaustive 30-date tour of the East coast of America in 2010 that the songs for the debut, self-released album “One Way” came into being. Steven’s debut album was described by the press as “an entertaining guide to some of the finer points of the musical anatomy, with vocals that have all the low-key passion of James Morrison and Paulo Nutini, the whimsical, yet intense, emotion of David Gray with a soulful, continental twist”.
When back in London, his long-time friend and session bass player Dominic Giannetta put him in touch with an A&R guy at Universal, where Steven signed a worldwide deal in 2011.
His debut single, “Puppets On TV”, released by Right Track Records/Universal Music on 26th September 2011, is a wry and raucous slingshot at the shallowness of “Reality TV” and has been produced by Chris Goulstone of Goldfrapp/Massive Attack fame at the legendary Chapel Of Rock in Wiltshire, South West England.
“Puppets On TV” has been featured on BBC Radio 2, BBC London 94.9, Radio Caroline and Cool FM 97.4 in the UK.
“It’s like my entire life has been building up to this moment”, he says.
“I am out to prove that in the end it’s all about the music – and enjoying the ride”.
“Sing To Me” is the first single off the new album and has been released on June 3, 2016. On June 27, Steven Bryan announced on his social networks the release date for a 4 track EP, due out on June 30.
On June 23, 2017, the much-anticipated album “Gravity Always Wins” has been released on all main digital outlets.
