LA based musician TRACY BRYANT, as a one of a kind solo artist, is speaking out as an outstanding singer/songwriter who isn͛t afraid to dig below the surface. With his work he is filling the gap between lush pop-arrangements and a genuine, distinctive sound. To introduce his new album A Place for Nothing And Everything In Its Place (out on Burger Records October 20th) he will head over to Europe and the UK for a month long tour in December joined by his European backing band of Brian Allen on bass, Nick Winfrey (Adult Books) on second guitar and Leonard Kaage (Jawbones, Anton Newcombe & Tess Parks) on drums
‘A Place for Nothing And Everything In Its Place’ was recorded in early 2016 in Berlin, Germany. Originally conceived to be an introspective acoustic album, the written songs, once in the studio, developed into a fullyarranged, conceptual work. With the help of producer Leonard Kaage, the acoustic intention became the red line that guides the nine songs through their variety. Bryant’s lyrics go a more personal way and follow inner and outer conflicts captured through the words of a restless outsider who ends up finding the company of love. The album is filled with dreamy footnotes of piano, ’60s percussion and a more than once appearance of edgy guitars. Imagine a classic singer/songwriter record loaded with the intimacy and grit reminiscent of Alex Chilton or Nikki Sudden. A true milestone that marks an important progression in Bryant͛s career as a solo artist. The album got its finishing touch by the mastering of LA pioneer Dave Cooley (Ariel Pink, The Black Angels, M83).
