As leader of the RedEyeBand (featuring his father Ken Bryant on bass and Trevor Barr on drums) guitarist Danny Bryant has proved himself as one of the hottest young players on the modern blues scene.
Having turned pro at the age of 18 Danny has played on bills with the likes of Buddy Guy, Fleetwood Mac legend Peter Green, Joe Cocker, Greg Allman and Walter Trout.
The band’s latest album Just As I Am features eight new original songs written by Danny and a cover of John Hiatt’s Master of Disaster.
You can preview the album of the band’s website (www.redeyeband.co.uk). It’s righteous stuff.
