A fresh start for Bryan Art

untitledAfter two albums with more or less the same content, Jamaican singer, guitarist and composer Bryan Art is ready for a fresh start.

He’s a graduate of the famous Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts, and he first came to prominence as a guitarist and touring member of the legendary Fire House Band. With Firehouse, he supported singers such as Luciano, Mikey General, Sizzla and Bushman, for whom he had the position as band leader.

His solo debut single came in 2001 and his debut album in 2010, and now he’s ready for a new start with a new management, his own label Junction Files Muzik and his own band File 13.

Musically his new four track EP Fresh Start is in the same vein as his previous releases – uplifting, soulful and positive reggae music. Well-composed and memorable, and it’s no surprise that Bryan Art has penned songs for Etana, Singing Melody and Bushman. He knows the craft. No doubt.

Certainly a set that promises well for an announced, but not yet scheduled, third album.
