Larry Bryant began his music career in the early 80’s as a songwriter, penning tunes-including a dozen top ten hits-for pop icons Glen Campbell and Frankie Valens as well as Christian artists Sandi Patty, Michael English, Avalon, Dallas Holm, Wayne Watson, Mark Lowry, Sheila Walsh, Terri Gibbs, The Gaither Vocal Band, Babbie Mason, Scott Wesley Brown, Gary McSpadden, Lulu Roman and others.
He also worked with keyboardist Michael W. Smith and producer Joe Huffman to record two albums of his own, The Artist and Silent Movies, which led to an extensive concert schedule over the next ten years.
Larry and co-writer Lesa, his wife, both earned gold records for their song “Unto Us (Isaiah 9)” which was featured on Sandi Patty’s Grammy-winning album Another Time, Another Place. The song was performed at the lighting ceremony for NYC’s Rockefeller Center Christmas tree in 1991.
Larry was also nominated for a Dove award for “Solid as the Rock”, a number 1 hit, which he co-wrote with Geoff Thurman for Michael English’s debut album.
Problems with his voice forced him off the road in the mid-90’s, but Larry has returned to the studio to work on a new series of independent projects.
