Artist Spotlight: Bryan Bludworth
Born and raised right here on the Emerald Coast, Bryan Bludworth is the perfect blend of Talent and Southern Charm! As a child Bryan started with piano lessons and then as a teen he picked up the guitar. High School brought his voice to the forefront with Chorus and Madrigals.
Bryan Bludworth is no stranger to the stage. His band “Krank”, 1999 – 2003, started out as Country and ended up moving toward Rock. Krank won the Destin Battle of the Bands in 2002.
As life has a way of happening Bryan took some time away from his music only to reappear on the scene in 2013 playing gigs around the Emerald Coast, this time mostly as a solo artist.
Understanding the industry and having a head for business, 2015 brought about a new approach for Bludworth. Bypassing the usual steps and all that they bring, Bryan chose to rent venues and sell tickets to his concerts on his own. He performed with his band and played only his original songs for 60 – 100 people per concert. This unique approach led to a well organized, professional experience that despite the large crowds, breathed an air of intimacy that is often lacking in today’s concerts.
Bryan has completed his latest album “Between Us” and staying true to his creative and independent nature he did it all himself. And I do mean All. The recording, mixing, mastering, burning CD’s, and printing / applying the cover art.
“Between Us” is a full length CD with 11 original songs. It is the kind of music that invokes Love. The kind that as you are driving along you look down and realize you and your partner have joined hands in quiet contemplation. “Between Us” holds the words you’ve always wanted whispered in your ear. Not every song is a love story, but the feelings you experience while listening to this album are relatable and often comforting. The images painted through the lyrics are ripe with local imagery. I like every single song on this CD and I absolutely Love a few of them.
