Outlaw country rocker Jacob Bryant's first album with Thirty Tigers and American Roots Records. With powerhouse vocals and bold songwriting, Bar Stool Preacher's 13 songs stay true to his trademark, deeply personal style that has built up an eager fan base.
With powerhouse vocals, bold songwriting talent and a dynamic live show, Bryant continues breaking the mold as a new artist. The singer-songwriter is a true road warrior and spent hundreds of thousands of miles on the road playing in honky tonks, fairs and even the Mother Church of Country Music, Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. Bryant has built an eager fan base while developing his trademark, deeply personal songs.
After losing his mother in 2010, the budding songwriter battled depression and anxiety, self-medicated with alcohol and cocaine, and ultimately suffered a heart attack at the age of just 19 – but he transformed the pain into passion. "Music is healing. As simple as that sounds, the process of creating my art about the life experiences I have had is my therapy," Bryant explained. "From writing the songs, recording, mixing and mastering to finally seeing a finished product in my hands has been extremely therapeutic for me."
Produced by Bryant, Jesse Triplette (guitarist from Collective Soul), Brandon Metcalf (Kacey Musgraves, Brantley Gilbert, Blues Traveler), Noah Gordon and Jeff Catton, Bar Stool Preacher was recorded at South X Sea Studios in Nashville.
