Danny Bryant + Special Guest Will Wilde (Duo)
“A national blues treasure” ~ Classic Rock Blues Magazine
“A fantastic guitar player, able to take a Fender Stratocaster and really make it sing.” ~ Joe Bonamassa
Fresh off the plane after 5 weeks in the USA and Canada fronting Walter Trout‘s band, this ‘national blues treasure’ is coming to Ropetackle Arts Centre for what promises to be a special night’s celebration to launch his new studio release Temperature Rising.
Bryant was always destined to be a road hardened blues-rock warrior, since being mentored by Trout and touring Europe in the company of Mick Taylor, Santana, Buddy Guy etc. Before signing a deal with Rounder Records in 2007 and a licensing deal with Virgin/EMI Asia allowing Danny to feature on the hit blues compilation The Best Blues Album In The World Ever. Danny was in illustrious company on this collection with several giants of the blues/rock genre, including Johnny Winter, Gary Moore, Albert Collins, and ZZ Top. And while each album has been like a chapter in an ever-evolving story, it’s since signing with the German based and ever dynamic Jazzhaus label that he’s enjoyed the kind of backing and focus needed to match his unquenchable thirst for making ever more exciting records, world tours and carry his career to the upper echelons of the modern day blues/rock scene. Steadily building on the old school conveyor belt of relentless touring and recording, while building audiences worldwide with his now legendary explosive live performances.
“His most mature performance yet. The firestorm of guitar is carefully contoured from wistful to impassioned” ~ Mojo Magazine
“What sets him apart is his passion and feeling. Danny’s playing grabs you with its intensity and urgency.” ~ Walter Trout
