With his towering height and powerful voice, Bryan Mayer, is making a BIG impact on the Country music scene. A North Carolina native, the 67 singer/songwriter began his journey in music when he was 13. The son of a US Marine Corps Colonel and a Navy nurse, while stationed in Quantico, VA, Bryan was tapped by his middle school music teacher to play the upright bass in the school band for his already impressive height of 61 in the 7th grade. Although Bryan enjoyed playing the bass, the lure of the front man aspect and realizing he could sing lead him to pick up the guitar. After some impromptu performances at keg parties at his house in college at ECU, Bryan ended up on the Carolina sands of Oak Island, NC. It was there that he started crafting his style and gutting it out in any bar, restaurant or party that would hire him. Everyone would always tell me that I was gonna make it someday. Some wondered why I hadn't already, says Mayer. I knew this is what I was put on earth to do.
In 2010, Bryan ended up with an opportunity to open for CMA nominated Country artists, Love & Theft. Singer/guitarist Steven Lyle Barker, the inspiration behind Taylor Swifts hit Hey Steven, pulled him aside and praised Mayers great tone, strong delivery, and overall feel. Steven told him that Nashville and Country music was where he was destined. I hung out with Steven after watching he and Eric play and realized he was right. This is exactly the sound I had been looking for, says Mayer.
Being a southern man from NC, Bryan identified with the bonfires, days on the river, and the simple life that Country is. It wasnt long after that show that Country radio powerhouse 95.1 WRNS took notice of Mayers talent and began to use him as a frequent opener at concerts for National Country headliners like Trace Adkins, Joe Nichols, Craig Morgan, Eli Young Band, The Band Perry, Thompson Square, and dozens more including Southern Rock Gods, Lynyrd Skynyrd. Years before, Bryan had already performed with Marshall Tucker and Blackfoot.
