Description

In the category of soul, few artists match the intensity and fervor that performer Don Bryant does, both when behind the mic and when putting pen to paper. An auteur of love, pain, regret and exuberance, Bryant's career as a songwriter and an electrifying personality onstage has one thread: deep, sincere feeling."There might be some sad stories, there might be some happy stories, might be some things you might not want to remember, but it'll bring to mind some situations," Bryant says of his songwriting. "And, that's what I've been always trying to push and reach somebody that's been through what I had."The interim between Don Bryant's debut LP "Precious Soul" in 1969 and his proper follow-up "Don't Give Up on Love" in 2017 might seem unusually long to most music fans. But that doesn't mean the 79-year-old singer wasn't at work for the nearly 45 years on the sidelines of the soul scene."I couldn't stop writing," Bryant says. "Because that was my joy. It was the thing I loved to do."Penning songs for others, he garnered success with hundreds of compositions performed by contemporaries such as Buddy Ace, Otis Clay and his wife Ann Peebles. And when producer Scott Bomar sent former Hi Rhythm Section drummer Howard Grimes to ask Bryant if he'd be interested in returning to life as a recording artist, Bryant had folders stacked high at home of unused original material."That was the beginning of getting back off deep into it, you know. And now that I got that feeling back, this is where I want to be," Bryant says. "I'm thankful to be back here, man. This is a part of me. This is the biggest part of me."Born in South Memphis, Tennessee, Bryant grew up in a house filled with music. All nine of his siblings sang, but Bryant looked to his father, a lead singer in traveling gospel group, as his example onstage.While other children played outside, Don set his sights on local talent shows at fairs and leveraged an opportunity to begin singing on radio promotions as a part of local teen sensations The Four Canes.
