We recently received this gem from Bryan Lazar, it’s his latest release “All That I Want” – it took us by surprise! So who is Bryan and what has he done recently that’s taken us surprise?
L.A. native Bryan Lazar is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who has self-released three albums, two EP’s & has already surpassed twenty million streams worldwide in his short career.
At an early age, Lazar had a strong passion for music and says that his main inspirations were guitar legends like Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan. When he was 11, Lazar began playing guitar and within a year was invited to perform at The Apollo in Harlem, NY. After high school, Lazar decided to explore and develop his musical talents, and attended Berklee College of Music in Boston. Lazar graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2013 and returned to Los Angeles. Over time fans started to resonate to Lazar’s music and a following started to grow.
Lazar performs all the instrumentation on his records, but performs live with a 4 piece group. Under Lazar’s lead, their respective talents and experience come together to create music that can be described as “almost a throwback to the 90’s alternative era while still having a fresh unique edge.”
Though his career is only beginning, Lazar has collaborated and worked with many artists including Willie Nelson and Annie Lennox.
Bryan Lazar’s sound in studio and on-stage is as fun and exciting as it is engaging. He is currently finishing his 4th LP “LAWET” which will be released Fall of 2019. Three singles have already been released from the project including “Closer to You”, “Running ‘Round Life’s Clock” & and his latest “All That I Want”, all already surpassing a combined three million streams in less than 6 months. Turning toward the future, Lazar is ready to take on the music industry with upcoming projects and shows.
So let’s take a look at Bryan’s latest release “All That I Want”. The track doesn’t waste any time, it grabs you right away. The form of the song is fantastic and we must say a really great job by Bryan and all involved. It’s got a charm that’s akin to how Van Halen did “Take Me Back (Deja Vu)” off their 1995 Balance album, however we dare say that Bryan really took that energy and really did a slightly better job (it’s just our opinion folks). The nice touch of blending the strat tones with the keyboards does the track wonders. Bryan’s voice is really well backed up with these elements. Overall a fantastic mix and a great job and if it’s not in your playlist it very well should be!
We really enjoyed this track and we’re looking forward to Bryan’s upcoming album!
