It was a breakout year for Bryan. He went from being what Rick O’Dell, top Smooth Jazz DJ, said was “one of the top unknown artists” in the industry to his most recent CD “Tuscan Sky” riding the top 40 charts for 16 week and 2 songs ranked in the top 100 of the year. He capped the year by being recognized as having the #7 album of the year in any genre for all of 2013 in the Chicago region – one of the top 3 markets in the US and a nod from Billboard magazine as one of the top 5 songs added to radio in October.
