Awesome! Huge thanks to Guitar World for taking the time to chat with me!
Do you have advice for female guitar players?
The paramount thing is to always compare yourself to the guitarists you're influenced by. Don’t just limit yourself to female musicians. Compare yourself to the best of the best. If you strive to be the best, that's what you’re going to become.
At what point do you think the feeling of being on a tour of this magnitude will really sink in?
I think it will be that first show and first note — the surreal moment when I see myself standing on stage with Alice Cooper. He's got this larger-than-life persona and wants the same out of the band members. When I'm there playing to him, I think that's when it’s really going to hit me the most.
YAY GUITAR CONTEST TIME AGAIN! When your entry basically uploads with an automatic 4 dislikes. Guitarists. lolz. Anywho, here's my entry to Andy James Guitar Academy "Dream Rig" competition for the Facebookers.

British blues guitarist and singer-songwriter, Danny Bryant will release his new album “Temperature Rising” in the UK on Monday 1st September. The album, released by Jazzhaus Records, is produced by Richard Hammerton, and is the follow-up to Bryant’s critically acclaimed 2013 album “Hurricane”. The album is followed by a UK tour that starts at The Robin 2, Bilston on Wednesday 3rd September.
To celebrate the release of the “Temperature Rising” album, Bryant is giving fans a free MP3 download of the song “Nothing At All”which is featured on the new album. From Monday 23rd June, fans will be able to download the song from www.dannybryant.com/free-download.
Bryant is a guitar protégé of the American blues guitarist, Walter Trout. In 1994, at the age of fourteen, Bryant first met Trout at one of his concerts in Cambridge. The two have remained close friends for the past twenty years. In May 2014, when Trout underwent a liver transplant in Omaha, Nebraska, he was in no condition to tour his new studio album “The Blues Came Callin”. He asked Bryant to front his band and tour America. Bryant’s manager/wife, Kirby, was responsible for setting up the online fundraising campaign for Trout’s liver transplant, which, to date has generated $240,000 U.S. dollars.
On the U.S. tour, which starts 31st July in Hermosa, California, Bryant will perform songs from Walter’s new album, plus songs from his own “Temperature Rising” album. “Temperature Rising” is edgier, fiercer and rockier than his previous albums, but still has its roots steeped in the blues.
