Bryan Lewis has been obsessed
with music ever since he was a kid. Bryan used to carry a little hand
held transistor radio with him everywhere he went.Bryan loves all kinds
of music but country music by far has always been his favorite. He loves
country music because it is so lyrically driven and evokes so many emotions
because its relatable to real life... his life.
After graduating high school Bryan spent several years following the
rodeo circuit as a bull rider. Sometimes he would do double duty at
rodeos and not only riding bulls but also play music. It was kind of
the best of both worlds doing both things he loved to do. But after
an injury to his hand he began to worry that the bull riding would jeopardize
his guitar playing so after six years of bull riding he quit to follow
his musical dreams.
He learned early on as a songwriter that the best songs he could possibly
write came from his own life experiences. He writes about what he knows
about and draws on feelings and emotions and situations from his own
life or those close to him.
He started performing after he started writing. Soon he realized that
he loved performing just as much as he loved writing music. It was apparent
very soon that he had a knack for interaction with the crowd. It was
such a rush to truly connect with an audience. He has
alot of energy on stage and that seems to really get the crowd into
Early on he played anywhere he could. He started sitting in with a local
bluegrass band. One night while the rest of the band was on break he
stayed on stage and played some of his own songs and the crowd really
enjoy it and he was hooked. As luck would have it there was a man in
the audience that owned a theater in southern Ohio where he held a country
music show every saturday night called The Paint Valley Jamboree
He asked Bryan to perform the very next week. After a very enthusiastic
performance he was asked to become a regular performer on the show.
Not long after that Bryan joined a band that mostly played the clubs
Since then Bryan has his own band and has been in the studio recording
his very own CD. The CD is getting airplay on local radio stations and
has been accepted very well by his fans. Bryan has been performing at
fairs, festivals and clubs and has opened up for artists like David
Allen Coe, Tracy Lawrence and country music hall of famer Charlie Louvin.
in 2009 Bryan had the opportunity to perform with Charlie Daniels at
his annual Family Reunion Party inhis home town of Mt. Juliet, TN.
