Danny Bryant announces new album Blood Money and UK tour

Danny Bryant is pleased to announce the release of his highly anticipated new studio album Blood Money – released by Jazzhaus Records on Friday 29 January 2016. His third album to be produced by Richard Hammerton, following in the footsteps of 2014’s Temperature Rising and 2013’s Hurricane, the new album features Danny collaborating with the iconic guitarists Walter Trout and Bernie Marsden on two tracks.

Says Bryant, “I wanted to make this album ever since I began my musical journey 20 years ago as a 15 year old boy who fell in love with his parent’s record collection. “Working with Bernie Marsden and Walter Trout on this album has been a career highlight for me.” On Blood Money, Bryant set out to record an album that showed a return to his roots and an appreciation of his blues influences, by paying homage, as he puts it “to all the different influences and flavours of this wonderful music that I have loved for many years.”

Particular tracks like On the Rocks is a homage to the late great Albert Collins, Holding All The Cards is a tribute to Jimmy Reed, while Unchained harks back to vintage Albert King Stax recordings. The title track, Blood Money, was specifically written with Walter Trout in mind, who was Bryant’s guitar mentor when he had a chance meeting with him at a concert when he was only 13 years old. “I wanted to share the song with Walter,” says Bryant. “I am really thrilled that he agreed to play guitar on the track. I think his contribution is truly stunning.”
