LA-based songwriter Bryan Master released his new album FOR PEOPLE LIKE US on 3/15/11 on Bonavox Records.
The album's credits read like an indie-artists' wish list: a duet with Liz Phair, and guest appearances by Jordan Zevon (son of legendary Warren Zevon), Rami Jaffee (founding member of the Wallflowers, and current organist for Foo Fighters), Jonny Polonsky, Chuck Fay (State Radio), Pete Yorn's entire backing band and some of the best session musicians out there.
Recorded in Los Angeles, under the supervision of seasoned musician, TV/Film score composer and Producer Evan Frankfort, they wanted to record a classic-sounding, multifarious album with an ensemble cast - consisting entirely of friends and respected colleagues.
You'll hear draws from his Irish roots, melodic nods to the classic sounds that defined his native New Jersey/Philadelphia scene in the '50s & '60s and a blend of alt-rock, Baroque Chamber/pop and ambient, cinematic sound-scapes. The songs evoke the sounds of anyone from The Zombies, Beach Boys, U2, Elvis Costello, REM, Foo Fighters, Beck, Pete Yorn…to even the Pogues.
Songs from the forthcoming album are already receiving radio airplay on stations such as NPR's WXPN in Philadelphia and placement in TV and Film projects. The album is available in select stores, through web-order, &, digitally, exclusively through iTunes.
The release has also received media support through the following outlets: Billboard.com, AOL Music, MSN Music, Yahoo! Music, MySpace Music & SPIN.com, among others. Bryan celebrated the release with two sold-out Los Angeles dates: a Record Release show at the Hotel Café & a Benefit Concert at the El Rey Theatre with Manchester Orchestra.
