When pop music began, most artists spent a week or two recording and mixing an album. Chris Bryan just spent 16 months recording “The Sum of my Habits”. Apparently, it’s difficult to find time for the studio when you’re finishing up college and student teaching. “The majority of the material for this album was created while grading essays and drinking red wine,” Bryan admits. “I would give somebody a B+ and then run to my bedroom to write down a melody”. Bryan, a Hope College graduate, is somewhat beside himself with the knowledge that he spent 60,000 dollars on a college degree - an arguably unnecessary piece of paper for a touring musician - but Chris says he feels at least a “little bit” smarter. In his third year in Michigan at Hope College, Chris recorded his first album, “Shades of Blue,” with longtime friend and producer, Nick Sleik. Unfortunately, with a full load of college classes, they were burdened with the inability to fully promote it. Fortunately, good music has a way of getting heard. The album soon sold in all 50 states, and the reviews from the press couldn’t have been better. He was dubbed, “The next John Mayer,” by Plugged-In-Music, received a four-star rating from “Discovering Artists,” and “Impact Sites” recognized him as “a name you will be hearing a lot of in the music world for years to come”.
