I’m That Guy!

erica bryan, behind the mic, beaverdamusa.comYou know that guy that keeps asking that girl out? And it’s not completely his fault because the girl always gives just enough to leave a glimmer of hope that there’s still a chance!

“Can I take you to dinner?”
“I can’t do tonight, but maybe some other time!”
“How bout this weekend?”
“Oh my gosh, my life is so busy now, I’m so sorry. It’s not that I don’t want to, it’s just the timing!”

BUT SHE NEVER SAYS “NO,” so how is the guy supposed to know?!

Well… I’m that guy. No, not literally (What kind of news did you think I had?!) but metaphorically, and the music industry is the girl- she always leaves me with a glimmer of hope!

I told you when I started this blog that I’d be real with you about what’s going on in my life. Well… Here it is. You can recall in one of my blogs that I thought a possible outcome of releasing my EP could be: “Nothing May Happen” 

But recently, I found out a record label rep is driving from Nashville to my Atlanta show… (Ahhhhh I’m freaking out!!!!) So, that lit some fire under my butt and made me think that maybe something could happen!

I’m super pumped about this step forward, but know I gotta step up my game and give this show, and my music career and EP release, my best foot forward. (Also, that means all Atlantans need to be present at my 7.1.16 album release show!!!)

So, when the metaphorical girl finally says she will go on a date with me, I gotta pick out my best date outfit, arrive early to the date, and sit in the living room charming her father. I gotta bring her flowers, open her door, and seal the deal at the end of the night!

Wish me luck!

About Erica Bryan

Erica’s passion for performing started when her mom brought her to her first theatre audition in Pennsylvania when she was eight years old. She didn’t make the cut. But the next year, she went back to the same audition and got the part. From an early age, Erica learned that with hard work and persistence, anything can happen. After her first show, there was no question that performing is what she would do for a living.
When she was twelve years old, her family moved to Roswell, GA, where she heard Country music for the first time. After listening to Reba and singing lots of Shania Twain karaoke, Erica decided she wanted to be a Country singer. Some years went by and, although Country music was always in the back of her mind, she started focusing more on her theatre opportunities, which led to her decision to study Musical Theatre in college.
While still in college, Erica performed professionally with Opera Birmingham, and spent her summers performing at theme parks and theatres. After graduation, she moved to New York City to continue her professional theatre career. While in New York, Erica got to train with Broadway’s finest actors and was cast in leading roles in Regional Theatres around the country. During one of her shows, Erica had the opportunity to perform with a Country band on the side. Call it coincidence or fate, but Erica was back singing Country music in the middle of a theatre contract, and she fell in love all over again.
After another year in theatre, it became clear to Erica that it was time to move to Nashville, TN and pursue her original childhood dream of being a Country artist. Shortly after arriving to Nashville, she landed a day job working for country hero, Reba McEntire, at Starstruck Entertainment. By night, she began crafting her own songs and writing skills. Within a couple months of songwriting, Erica’s songs started receiving the highest honors from the Nashville Songwriters Association. She recently released her debut single “This House Is Haunted,” and is receiving radio play in multiple countries. For the Country Record describes Erica as, “one of those rare multi-talented people who most only dream about becoming.” Erica is currently touring with her original music and plays keys, ukulele, and guitar to anyone who will listen.
