BRYAN ANDREW WILSON

AND “THIS TIME” MUSIC VIDEO
Available NOW on Amazon!
Bryan Andrew Wilson is writing a new career chapter with an urban music-inspired EP, This Time (Bryan’s Songs/The Orchard: http://smarturl.it/BAWThisTime), which recently reached No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Singles sales chart. The spiritual soul singer put aside the ballads he’s known for such as “Turning Away” and brought a hard-hitting urban rhythm to the title track.
The bass-heavy, rocker comes at a time when spiritual messages are creeping into mainstream songs ranging from Drake’s “God’s Plan” to Kesha’s “Pray.” The theme carries over into a Wilson’s new music video that was produced and directed by Isaac “Chill Yowman (Beyoncé, Trey Songz, Chris Brown). It was shot on a soundstage at Ricky Rich & Morgan “Bless” Riley’s Studio 713 where DJ Snake and Justin Bieber cut, “Let Me Love You,” a platinum hit. The video is in the first round of this year’s Grammy® Awards in the Best Music Video category.
“I really wanted to do a video on this track to force people to see beyond the kid who sang `His Eye is on the Sparrow,’” Wilson says. “I want them to see me 20 years later as a grown man with real issues, a real beard and some real-life things to say.”
The digital EP also features two secular tracks – the mid-tempo, “In Spite of Me” and the lush ballad, “Love Always.” It closes with an alternative mix of “This Time” that was produced by GMJR (Musiq Soulchild). The EP was mastered by Randy Merrill (Taylor Swift, Adele, Sam Smith) at Sterling Sound in New York City.
Wilson kicked off his career at the age of 10 with Malaco Records where he was produced by heavyweights such as Kirk Franklin, John P. Kee, Walter Hawkins and Fredrick Knight who produced the 1979 disco classic “Ring My Bell.” Wilson’s first recording, “His Eye is on the Sparrow,” with the Mississippi Children’s Choir is a gospel classic with millions of streams. Over the last four years, Wilson has scored with Billboard chart hits such as “Overflow,” “Whoa,” “I Put You First” and the haunting ballad, “Turning Away.” Visit www.bryanwilson.com <http://www.bryanwilson.com/> for more.
