Rising Outlaw Country Rock star, singer/songwriter Jacob Bryant, has joined Thirty Tigers and American Roots Records as ahead of his upcoming new record Bar Stool Preacher, set for release on January 14th 2022.
Jacob Bryant comments on the Thirty Tigers news: “David Macias is a titan in this industry and I’m stoked to have him and his team behind this project. This album means the world to me and I can’t wait to get it out to the masses!”
Macias also has some enthusiastic things to say about Bryant:
“The first time I heard Jacob’s music, I couldn’t believe how great it was. I was immediately taken with his strong vocals and incredible songwriting. It’s not often that I hear something where the song is stuck in my head after one listen, and that happened with several of his songs. I think Jacob has it in him to be a major star, and I’m proud that he and his team picked us to help him realize his promise.”
Bryant has been a tireless touring artist for some time, playing in honky tonks, fairs and even the Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium and is known for his very personal song lyrics. He’s very open about his mental and physical health struggles following the passing of his mother in 2010, which led to his anxiety issues, alcohol and cocaine abuse, and ultimately, a heart attack at the age of 19. He credits music for turning his pain into something more positive.
Having recently welcomed his second child with his wife Britney, Bryant reflects:
“I’m so thankful I’ve been able to spend more time with my children. With being off the road (during the pandemic), it’s given me the space to reflect and to grow, to get better as both an artist and a person. In the past, I’d go through my daily life searching for normal, and my normal has been making music that lets the pain out. A lot of artists don’t talk about what they’re going through, but I want other people to know they’re not alone. Now I find myself writing more about the joys of life”.
