Product Description

Product Description

Recorded as a power trio, Hurricane was produced by Richard Hammerton. The nine songs showcase the evolution of Bryant as both guitarist and songwriter. The album bursts with power-fueled originals, groove-driven up-tempo songs, and soulful blues ballads. Danny retreated to the rural solitude of the county of Cornwall in the southwest of the UK to record the new album. "It was just like time travel," says Danny. "Since there was almost no phone reception or internet connection, I spent between 15-18 hours a day concentrating on nothing but the music." The difference to the previous studio album "Just As I Am" (2010) is based mainly in the production. Says Danny - "The songs are the result of hard work and have gained considerable complexity." This is evident not only in the melodic title track, but also with the ballad "Can't Hold On," not to mention the funky-bluesy "Greenwood 31" – a song that harks back to a similar urgency in the style of Jimi Hendrix mixed with the attitude of Lenny Kravitz. Inspired by American rockers including John Hiatt and Bruce Springsteen, Bryant looks back on some of his career highlights. Reflects Danny - "Recording the live album "Nightlife" (2012) was a milestone. Over the past few years we've constantly toured Europe, and in doing so, we have broken new ground both musically and geographically." The results are evident from the reaction from the audiences. "In the beginning, people were primarily coming to the concerts to see a young guitar player," says Danny, "but these days I think they're coming because of songs, voice and overall performance."

Review

"'Hurricane' is a thoughtfully conceived, well constructed album with impressive songs and his best ever vocals." 4.5/5 --Get Ready To Rock (Pete Feenstra)

"Bryant creates a record with enough diversity and enough traditionalism to satisfy any blues music enthusiast and enthrall any blues lover" 8/10 --Blues Rock Review

Danny's eagerly awaited newbie fully lives up to expectations.We have 9 superb self-penned numbers, starting with Prisoner of The Blues which storms in like a testosterone-fuelled bull elephant on speed.Next up,a Mississippi blues tribute to Hubert Sumlin,Greenwood 31, followed by a very reflective ballad, Can't Hold On. The rest of the album is a delightful mix of styles, including the Hookeresque Devil's Got a hold On Me and two nice slow blues, I'm Broken and Losing You. The last track, Painkiller, about an elicit hotel tryst, starts off slowly, building to a climax which begs you to replay the whole album. Weak track? There isn't one. If you're familiar with Danny's work , you won't be disappointed.I would say this is the most mature of Danny's albums.

If there is any justice this is the album that will bring Danny Bryant the success and accolades that he so richly deserves. Everything Danny does is high quality and Hurricane builds on his previous work on a number of levels.
Bryant is one of the most committed hard working genuine artists on the Blues Rock scene but he is still well under most people's radar. Hurricane should change that.
The album is a cast iron stormer and you get what you expect from Bryant, stunning, detailed playing and an emotive vocal all underpinned by a rock solid rhythm section. Hurricane is more than that however, it is Bryant's most diverse piece of work yet, his most confident and strident and his most accessible. One listen and it feels like a favourite but for all the right reasons.
Bryant is steeped in the Blues but he has managed to develop his own contemporary sound that is now a trademark sound. It is within certain songs searing, dextrous, melancholic, melodic but never less than honest. I often liken his style and attitude to that of the legend that is Walter Trout.
Nine original songs here that further demonstrate Bryant's emerging self confidence, the production is both clear and rich, adding another layer to the album.
Prisoner of the Blues is such an apt opener sums up the man and sums up his talent, there is a mesmeric solo at the heart of the track. Greenwood 31 an altogether different beast, hardcore Blues where Danny nods to Hubert Sumlin by name and style. A riff laden belter.
Bryant has always been able to deliver beautiful ballads and this evidenced in full on the glorious melody of Can't Hold On and the totally awesome Broken.

This album is full of grit & emotion; there is a lot of variety and the album feels "big"; with tonnes of guitar attitude & even a hint of U2 and Guns n Roses on a couple of tracks! With so much variety it's hard to pick a favourite, but 'prisoner of the blues' and 'devils got a hold on me' are two head-bopping, air guitar playin' teeth-gritters which any blues lover will adore. 'Cant hold on', 'hurricane' and 'all or nothing' are the more commercial songs on the album, any of which could be a hit; the modern sythy epic production and songwriting really makes these feel like 'big' stadium numbers with 'painkiller' easily making my top 5 favourite acoustic blues numbers ever. Great album. 5 stars all the way & uber-excited about hearing it live :)

There ya go I said it. Someone had to. Danny's guitar playing is what most people rave about and rightly so, his fretwork runs the gamut from blistering balls-to-the-wall fiery driving Blues to pin-drop quiet beautiful emotionally wrought violin passages that make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up and leave you with a big grin on your face. But he's more than that. He has a great voice to match and his song-writing skills are bang on the money. Added to that, he's a smashing fella. Really lovely bloke.

What is clear when you get up close and watch him do his thang in the live setting is how deep the Blues goes. It's in his hands, in his face, in his heart and his soul. This guy breathes the Blues. You can see the dedication to his art. It's in him and it's got to come out. He plays with an intensity that's unequalled. This is deeply personal stuff and for the 2 hours he plays, you're there with him. You're a part of it. He feeds off an audience, he knows when to hold off and when to let go. Perfect understanding of dynamics.

Hurricane is the next phase of the journey, taking him from the pub-Blues circuit and on towards the stratosphere. This is grown up Blues music for the 21st Century. Catch him playing live. The tone from his guitar, the note choices, the textures created, every nuance, every wailing heartfelt cry. Danny Bryant is the real deal.

As is generally the case it's real artists like Danny Bryant who plough the blues rock path without huge recognition outside their fan base. Sometimes it's easy to see why some artists never break out of this box, but with this album Danny Bryant must surely gain wider appeal. He can write rockers and ballads, play blistering lead or laid back minor blues and, despite misgivings from some here, can sing with passion and feeling. There's nothing weak on this and he's successfully transported years of live playing into the studio to deliver an album of sheer quality.
