Bryan Himes - Traditional yet contemporary. A slice of Son House - a dose of Robert Johnson - the risk taking of Jimi Hendrix -bottled up in Keb Mo - You've got Bryan Himes! Original and inspiring - no jiving here. He's got the goods - let him prove it to you - He is a Risk Taker. This fourth CD which focuses strictly on the blues leaves no question as to Bryan's influences. Although he has dabbled in various genres the blues is his where he shines. He has represented central Ky. in the International Blues Comepetition in Memphis in 2001(solo) and in 2003(band). His highly charged performances are captivating.
The powerful vocals are crisp and clean and his slide guitar work is totally spellbinding!! His lyrical style can range from the humorous to the story-telling style of Dylan or Johnny Cash. Bryan's music has something for everyone to enjoy!!!!!
