LA Garage-Rock: Tracy Bryant Releases “Nightmare” + Announces New Album 8/30





Los Angeles songwriter/musician Tracy Bryant debuts “Nightmare” from his forthcoming full-length Hush due out August 30th, 2019 via First and Foremost Records. Known for his rollicking, zoned out garage-rock, Bryant returns to form on “The Nightmare.” IMPOSE Magazine praised the “dueling guitars, pulsating percussion, and hypnotic choruses,” saying, “Bryant crafts a searing garage-pop anthem”

Solo artist Tracy Bryant may not have all the answers, but without a doubt, he’s got a lot to say. Bryant stands in opposition in his native Los Angeles, the city is known too often for its superficial facade. He does what he wants and always has. Inspired by artists and bands like Alex Chilton, Lou Reed, R.E.M., and Cass McCombs, his words ring refreshingly honest embedded into a sound that is undeniably modern. A songwriter lacking the nonsense, the male bravado, the rock ’n’ roll cliché.

Hush, Tracy Bryant’s third studio album, was recorded over the course of six months in the mountains of Topanga Canyon, California. Produced by Kyle Mullarky (The Growlers / Allah Las) and partly written in collaboration with his wife Kimberly Fitzner, the album is a dynamic and transforming journey from beginning to end.

Hush is addressing and lyrically forward, conversational and calm, but with an unforgiving and forward voice that doesn’t shy away from naming the struggles and graces which come upon all who pursue a creative life. The soaring melodies of Hush are a breath of fresh air combined with an authentic lyrical perspective which approaches the sometimes taboo music industry and the characters which inhabit it. 

Bryant’s most elaborate production yet is realized by the immaculate drumming & percussion of Nick Murray(Cate Le Bon, White Fence), precision bass by Brian Allen (Burnt Ones) and Kyle Mullarky, and guitars and piano played by Bryant himself. The album is mastered by world-renowned engineer Dave Cooley (Blood Orange, Ariel Pink, Animal Collective).

Bryant and his band will be returning to Europe in the fall of 2019 upon the release of Hush August 30th on First & Foremost in the U.S. & Taxi Gauche Records in Europe/UK.
