The British blues/rock guitarist an all-round guitar-obsessed, blues fanatic — Danny Bryant — is pleased to announce the release of his highly anticipated new studio album Blood Money – to be released by Jazzhaus Records on Friday 29th January 2016.  [UK Tour Dates Shown Below.]

It will be his third album to be produced by Richard Hammerton — following in the footsteps of 2014’s Temperature Rising and 2013’s Hurricane. The new album features Danny collaborating with the iconic guitarists Walter Trout and Bernie Marsden on two tracks.

Says Bryant, “I wanted to make this album ever since I began my musical journey 20 years ago as a 15 year old boy who fell in love with his parent’s record collection…

On Blood Money Bryant set out to record an album that showed an introspective return to his roots and an appreciation of his blues influences, by paying homage, as he puts it “to all the different influences and flavours of this wonderful music that I have loved for many years.”

Particular tracks like On the Rocks is a homage to the late great Albert Collins. Holding All The Cards  is a tribute to Jimmy Reed, while Unchained harks back to vintage Albert King Stax recordings.

The title track —Blood Money — was a song that Bryant had on the fire for several years.  He just needed the right time and the right collaborator to bring the song to life. This particular song was specifically written with Walter Trout in mind — who was Bryant’s guitar mentor when he had a chance meeting with him at a concert when he was only 13 years old.

I wanted to share the song with Walter...” says Bryant. “I am really thrilled that he agreed to play guitar on the track. I think his contribution is truly stunning.”

Another highlight of the Blood Money recording sessions was the contribution from former Whitesnake guitarist Bernie Marsden.

One of Bryant’s all-time favourite guitarists and singer-songwriters, Bryant invited Marsden to record a special ballad that Bryant had written entitled Just Won’t Burn. The song was recorded in one afternoon session and during the recording, Marsden played his famous 1959 Les Paul known as The Beast.

This title will be released on January 29, 2016.
