From his early days busking the late-night streets of Halifax, Brett Ryan has always been a soulful singer. With the passionate intensity of Van Morrison and Bruce Springsteen, the musician has worked hard to find the perfect setting for his songs. Through the mid-‘80s, he played bass in the pop-rock outfit Little Ministers. With its polished pop sheen and some promising songwriting, the band grabbed the attention of some international record labels, though a deal never materialized. Brett found his focus as a solo artist, releasing his debut album The Answer’s Electric in 1991. Released on the Attic/A&M label, the title single went Top 20 in Canada and Top 10 in Belgium, Holland, Australia and Japan. The album also netted him a coveted East Coast Music Award as male artist of the year. Brett followed up with the critically-acclaimed releases The Babylon Mask, A Place at the Table, and the Top 10 charting Escaping Gravity. Now, after a break away from the business, Ryan returns to his first love — making music. St. Cecilia’s Soul marks the welcome return of one of the region’s best singer-songwriters.
