Turn Up the Radio

erica bryan, beaverdamusa.com, behind the micAs an artist on a major record label, when you release a single, a whole slew of promoters are just waiting to run around town marketing and promoting your song.

As an independent artist who just released a single…well…you realize that your promotion team is just yourself. Luckily, I have been blessed to have my single reviewed on numerous websites (you can view all my press here) and have made some radio headway. And last week, I was able to have my first in-studio performance that will be aired over the radio!

Erica 0724 1Meet Richard from East Nashville Radio.

Richard was kind enough to feature my song on his show “Ladies Brunch” that  airs every Sunday.

After he featured my song, he asked me if I would like to come into the studio and do a studio performance. So I said, “Heck yeah!” (I probably said it more  eloquently…but that’s what I was thinking!)

Erica 0724 2I have to admit, I was a little nervous to play by myself, without the crutch of my band. But luckily, I had just had a show, so I was well practiced! I played my single, “This House Is Haunted” (you can buy it on iTunes!!) and then he said, “ok, what’s next?” I had no idea I would play more songs! I ended up playing four original songs and then we had an interview where I got to share some of my story.

My interview will air sometime in the next week or so, so keep up with me on twitter (click here), Facebook (click here), or my personal website (click here), to keep tabs on all my on-goings. Also, I will have a radio interview with Rockin’ Country Radio that will air on July 30. So turn up that radio!

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.
