Bryan Rice is back - Even better than before
He conquered Denmark and the world with “No Promises” and “Homeless Heart” - now there is Good News!
Bryan Rice is back with 10 brand new tracks and a cover of one of the 90s biggest hits.
The path of Bryan Rice’s’ career looked bumpy and the successor to the debut album “Confessional” seemed far from realization. It took a while, but with a great effort from Bryan and a new record label, the path is now straightened.
After “Confessional” almost achieved platinum status Bryan is ready to follow the success with “Good News”. The 2 first singles, “I Lied” & “Good News” are still at the top of the airplay chart in his native country Denmark, and right now the third single “Sleeping Satellite” have been released for radios. And yes, it is a cover of the early 90s success single, by Tasmin Archer.
Bryan Rice has written a part of the songs on the new album together with other songwriters. To him it has been a natural development to explore new areas of his artistic universe.
The inspiration comes from observing the little things and every-day events. ”I saw a small sticker in my neighborhood saying: I am leaving now and I am not turning around, ´cause you are there… That inspired me to write a song for the new album; it’s the whole process that such a small incident or a quaint story can turn into a finished song that fascinates me about song writing.”
The new album features a more rock-influenced version of Bryan Rice. He explores new aspects of his voice without compromising with the refined pop sound that has been so successful the past two years. It is still the catchy tunes, the moving lyrics and Bryan’s amazing voice that form the basis – exactly the combination that has filled both reviews and audience – in Denmark and abroad - with enthusiasm.
Many people predict that Bryan Rice will be the next Danish star that sets the standard for Danish pop music abroad. And with “Good News” the dream of breaking through as an internationally recognized artist really seems to come true.
His story can make anyone get puffed but not the man himself: "If I had to start from scratch I would have been worn out during my speedy career, but luckily I had a lot of experience in all corners of the business before the first single really took off in the spring of 2005. I really learned a lot about the business during my years as a backing- and demo singer. The experience made me able to enjoy the success – and I am still enjoying it. When I wake up in the morning I know that I have the best job I could ever imagine and that has been a great motivation when working on the new album. I know it sounds like a cliché but it has really been a difficult process getting the new album together. My own expectations for the album were sky-high and you do feel a certain pressure when you have sold almost platinum of your debut albums.”
