Bryan Thomas made his move to country music in 2012 and has experienced rapidly growing success including, RMCMA 2016 New Artist of the Year Winner, RMCMA 2016 nominee songwriter of the year, song of the year, album of the year, 1st Place winner Corn Fest 13, First Place Singer/Songwriter Colorado Open Mic Showdown, Indie Solo Artist of The Year Finalist, and he made a great run on the hit network show The X Factor! Bryan is the former front man of the Fort Collins, CO based rock band “Stranger Things” and the hard rock feel is always present in Bryan’s powerhouse voice.
Bryan was born in Lander, WY in 1988 and moved to Northern Colorado at age 4. By the time he was 2 he was singing full length country songs and by 5 years old he had already hit the stage a few times. Bryan suffered a serious back injury when he was 14 and as a result he was 440 pounds by the time he was 20 years old. Bryan was completely demoralized and lacked the confidence to even consider taking the stage again. Finally after losing 200 pounds, Bryan performed for the first time in over a decade at his uncle Drew’s funeral. That performance was one of the most difficult things Bryan has ever done but it was the spark that re-lit a fire that had been burning deep inside a once broken artist.
With his confidence soaring and a new found respect for his opportunities, Bryan decided it was time to take his shot. After extensive preparation Bryan began competing in singer/songwriter competitions and winning most of them. Bryan began to draw crowds to his shows in Colorado and Wyoming and making connections with working bands across the region. In December 2013, Bryan was blessed to close a show for a world famous country artist who happens to be one of Bryan’s biggest musical influences and the following night Bryan played in a stadium for the first time in his career!
Bryan is currently living in Greeley, CO and he travels to Nashville, TN where he is a regular at writer’s nights and has pieced together an elite new band of rockin outlaws sure to turn heads! Bryan’s new album, “Burn It To The Ground” was recorded at Sioux Sioux Studio in Charlotte North Carolina and the title track and lead off single, Burn It To The Ground is currently on the radio across the United States! This album has multiple number 1 contenders and Bryan is making a strong case for a Grammy nomination!
Recently, Bryan has toured the region building a following of dedicated fans and he has had the opportunity to share the stage with some of the most elite singers, songwriters, and musicians in his region and across the country and has turned the head of industry pros at every step of the way! The OUTLAW sound is not something you achieve, it is something you are born with and as the crowds beg for it Bryan Thomas delivers In a BIG way! Bryan is making moves in country music and his rapid ascent is garnering the interest of all the right people!
Bryan is a rare breed of country music vocalist that you don’t run into every day. He is truly rocking to the beat of his own drum and has written what several industry pros consider to be the next number one album to come out of Nashville!
Bryan is driven and engaging, a natural performer and showman and he is bringing a hard hittin’ outlaw grit to the scene. Watch out pop country, you ain’t even heard him yet…
