North Charleston, SC (PRWEB) March 4, 2009
Charleston, SC March 3, 2009 -- Sierra Guitars is pleased to announce guitarist and singer/songwriter Mark Bryan of Hootie and the Blowfish as the newest endorser of Sierra Guitars! Mark plays the Sierra Northstar 12-string guitar in Natural.
After officially signing an agreement with Sierra Guitars earlier this month, Mark Bryan remarked, "I am so excited to have such a gorgeous Sierra 12-string to add to my collection! It looks, sounds, and plays amazing. I couldn't have dreamt up anything as sweet as this thing."
Mark Bryan is a founding member, songwriter and the guitar player for multi-platinum Hootie & the Blowfish. While Hootie continues to tour and proves to be endlessly successful, Bryan constantly writes, records and produces solo material, and his latest efforts can be heard on the solo release End of the Front. Bryan offers up twelve new songs that range from punk to pop, to rock, to bluegrass on the debut.
End of the Front finds Bryan plunging into songs a slightly harder, faster, and with more distortion than we know him to do in Hootie. Bryan recorded End of the Front at his studio outside of Charleston, South Carolina with the help of some close friends who lend their vocals and musical talents to the project. With three tracks featuring performance by co-producer Fred LeBlanc-- drummer, lead singer, and explosive device of Cowboy Mouth-alongside Bela Fleck on banjo, Sam Bush on mandolin, and members of Charleston's Jump Little Children to play string parts, Front offers a glimpse into the colorful world Bryan entertains.
As Bryan hits the road in 2008 and 2009 to support End of the Front, he will play select dates with his three-piece band, The Occasional Milkshake, featuring Hootie percussionist, Gary Greene, and The Blue Dogs' bassist, Hank Futch.
