Danny Bryant returns once again with another cracking album Means Of Escape, following up on his highly regarded Revelation album, Bryant is back to his best with a hard-hitting, gnarly album packed with attitude and passion once again.

The album kicks off with a stomping track in ‘Tired Of Trying’ written alongside Walter Trout it is dripping in attitude and has a gritty side that is great to see back once again from Bryant. ‘Too Far Gone’ encapsulates what Bryant is like live, with a huge sound and striking presence he delivers along with his band and like a wall crashing down drives it home, recorded in one take this is Bryant and his band at their finest.

‘Means Of Escape’ has an ‘All Along The Watchtower’ vibe going on with its punchy delivery and hefty pace, ‘Nine Lives’ takes it back with a bluesy shuffle and that old school delivery that we all want in the mix whilst ‘Skin And Bone’ breaks it down in an emotive acoustic number. The album is 100% Bryant at his best and sees him back to where he was before the loss of his father, with his signature vocal style and haunting lyrics Bryant hits a nerve with his songs that few can only dream of.  A heftier album than Revelation Danny is gripping the bull by the horns and ‘Warning Signs’ if the perfect track to get your teeth into with its killer vibe and swagger.

Means Of Escape see’s Danny and co back at their absolute best and armed with a plethora of killer tracks to add to their arsenal, one not to miss Bryant shows why he’s still regarded as one of the UK’s finest bluesmen around.
