"Linda Albu (The Internet Publicist) has been a great help to me in establishing myself as an animator and musician on the internet. She set up Facebook pages, Twitter, ReverbNation, and linked them all together so they work as an "update machine." She has saved me a lot of time and trouble because she understands how social media and networking go together. She cares about your welfare and success and this allows you to spend more time creating instead of promoting."

PRESS RELEASE = For Immediate Release
From: "The Voice That Can Do It All - No Hype, Just FACT" -(Billboard Magazine)
"The Voice That Can Do It All - no hype, just Fact" is how BILLBOARD Magazine describes Bryant Sterling, the 2009 VH-1 Songwriting Award Winner.
Bryant Sterling's moving tribute to people struggling in these tough economic times, “Times Are Hard”, was inspired by Sterling’s own humble and tumultuous beginnings. A rocker with a unique and soulful voice, Sterling wanted to express his concern for the current difficult situations many people now face. In an interview with the artist, he bares his soul detailing his early and difficult childhood.
Here is a short interview that I did with Bryant recently that explains his life, thoughts and feelings.....
Question: Where did you grow up?
Bryant: In an orphanage called “Jolly Home”, south of Atlanta, Georgia. It was a Southern Plantation converted to an orphanage.
Question: What made you realize that music was your path?
Bryant: Growing up in the orphanage was a very hard life. We were never allowed to listen to any other kind of music other than Christian songs on Sundays. I was nine months old when my parents left me at this orphanage. Twelve years of my life and for over 100 refusals by my biological parents to let me be adopted, I had no exposure to the outside world or to music. Just a lot of very hard, cruel people.
When I was 12 years old, my mother married for a second time to a physically abusive man and decided to take my sisters and myself out of the orphanage. When I got out of the orphanage, I finally got to hear the radio with Rock n Roll music for the first time! Although I loved what I heard, I made my own KRYSTAL radio.
I tuned into a radio station that only played black artists’ music. I literally fell in love with the sound and identified with it. I later came to understand that it was called Soul Music, and I listened to nothing else. I then knew what I wanted to do in life.
I ran away from home and my abusive stepfather to pursue my dream of singing. I related to the Soul Music sound because we, the children of the orphanage, were treated like the black slaves that lived and worked there 100 years before us. I only sang the old Gospel Spirituals while we worked the fields and tended the farm animals for food products.
When I emerged to the outside world I was as mean as the water moccasins that were in the swamps surrounding the orphanage – meaning they attacked without being provoked. Music became my therapeutic outlet. Soul Music allowed me to sing my heart out and express my soul and pain.
Question: How would you describe the music that you typically create?
Bryant: It is a compilation of many styles and genres of music that I’ve worked and sang through the years (Rock, Soul, Southern Rock, Country, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Pop, R&B, Southern Gospel, Christian Rock).
Question: Who are your biggest musical influences?
Bryant: All the Soul Greats from Otis Redding, James Brown, Wilson Pickett, Stevie Wonder, Sam and Dave, Percy Sledge and Aretha Franklin.
Question: What makes your music unique?
Bryant: Me and My Life.
Question: Has there been one moment in your musical career that you are most proud of?
Bryant: Yes – as a boy I listened to Stevie Wonder music and then in 1993 I was sitting right next to him on his piano bench in his recording studio, working on songs together at 4 o’clock in the morning!
Question: What’s next for you?
Bryant: No one can know what’s next in this life. But I hope I will be able to continue working and growing in my music.

From a 'Who's Who' in the Music Industry: Mr. Shelly Liebowitz: “Bryant is one of those great introspective singer/songwriters who takes the audience on a journey of emotions, speaking from personal experiences."
