Biography

Born and raised in Kinston, North Carolina, 21-year old Bryan Malpass has had a passion for singing since performing in a 1st grade talent show. He progressed from school events, to singing at fundraisers, the Chamber of Commerce, and the Performing Arts Theatre. Then in 2001, Bryan joined Legends Live and began performing throughout the Southeast at parties, festivals, fundraisers and such. He also participated in American Talent Showcase twice yearly, continuing with both Legends and ATS through 2006.

After winning free studio time at the age of 12, Bryan chose to record songs by Creed and The Calling, showing his early propensity for rock music. At 14 Bryan started playing the guitar, and then during his Junior year of high school, he and a group of friends formed a band, and began playing in clubs around North Carolina. This led him to start writing music for the band to perform, and they eventually recorded a 3-song demo.

Bryan had been a starting member of the football team for 9 years, but the summer between his Junior and Senior year he had to make a choice between pursuing music or football. The choice was obvious for him, and music won out.

In October, 2006, Bryan signed a management contract with Glenda Robinson of Amplified M.P.R. and began writing and recording songs for his first solo album. Working with renowned record producer Billy Chapin, he spent most of his Senior year dividing his time between high school in North Carolina and recording his album in Florida. After graduating in June, 2007, Bryan made the move to Florida to complete the album and begin performing live.

His debut cd “All Things Considered” was released in August, 2007. The album includes original songs written by artists such as Edwin McCain, Stan Lynch (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers), Mike Shimshack, Marc Swersky, and Charlie Midnight, along with the songs that Bryan himself contributed.

Bryan’s goal is now to be able to travel the world performing his own unique style of rock music for audiences everywhere.

With a strong work ethic, a passion for music, and unwavering focus, Bryan is on the brink of making all of his dreams come true.

Lyrics

In Deep

Written By: B. Chapin, S. Lynch, B. Malpass

Runnin’ out of words to say
Runnin’ out of things to blame
Everywhere I see your face
Everywhere I hear your name

Have you noticed when you stand so close
I get so lost, or can’t you tell
Can you feel it cause I just can’t keep it to myself
Cause there’s no one else, no one else, cause

Cause I’m in deep
In this hole that you keep me
Cause it keeps me wanting more
I know I felt this way before
Thinkin’ bout your love
Thinkin’ bout your love

Never had a place to go
No one I could call my own
Lost out on a winding road
Without you girl I’m so alone

You’ve always known that when you hold me close
And it’s just you, I’m in your spell
Can you feel it cause I just can’t keep it to myself
Cause there’s no one else, no one else, cause

Cause I’m in deep
In this hole that you keep me
Cause it keeps me wanting more
I know I felt this way before
Thinkin’ bout your love
Thinkin’ bout your love

Thinking’ bout your love
Oh yeah

I had my reasons for never needing
Was a solitary man
And now it’s better since I let you in, oh…

Cause I’m in deep
In this hole that you keep me
Cause it keeps me wanting more
I know I felt this way before
Thinkin’ bout your love
Thinkin’ bout your love

Cause I’m in deep
In this hole that you keep me
Cause it keeps me wanting more
I know I felt this way before
Thinkin’ bout your love
Thinkin’ bout your love

Thinkin’ bout your love

Runnin’ out of words to say
Runnin’ out of things to blame

I Want To Be The One

Written By: M. Shimshack

Don't want to talk
Don't want to try
Don't want to scream out loud
How do I make you mine?

Don't want to change your mind
Don't want to know who's wrong or right
Don't want to say goodnight
I'm no good with goodbyes

So let's ignore the signs
That say we're running out of time

I want to be everything
More than you'll ever need
I know
I want to be the one
I would give anything
To be what you want me to be
I know
I want to be the one

Don't want a scene
Don't want a fight
Don't want to go back home
I'm in no shape to drive

Don't want to make you cry
Don't want to leave us far behind
Don't want to break up
To make up one more time

If it's a dead end, tell me a lie
Just hope we make it out alive

I want to be everything
More than you'll ever need
I know
I want to be the one
I would give anything
To be what you want me to be
I know
I want to be the one

I don't want to live without you
Don't even think I know how to
There must be a way to rewind
And start all over again

I want to be everything
More than you'll ever need
I know
I want to be the one
I would give anything
To be what you want me to be
I know
I want to be the one

Don't want to talk
Don't want to try
Don't want to say goodnight
I'm no good with goodbyes

Change

Written By: M. Swersky, C. Midnight, N. Crow

Change my clothes, change my face
Change the time and change the place
You walk out, I walk off
Never knowing what we've lost
I don't know if I can
Change the signs and change the plan

All things come to those who wait
But some things come too late

If I knew what I could lose
I would change for you
If I stumbled on the truth
I would change for you
If there's something I could do
To turn me into you
I would change, I would change

What I am, what I'm not
Someone tell me what I've got
In my hands, in my heart
Where to stop and when to start
Only words come between
What we say and what we mean

If I really knew myself
Then I'd be someone else

If I knew what I could lose
I would change for you
If I listened to the clues
I would change for you
If there's something I could do
To turn me into you
I would change, I would change

Maybe there is no conclusion
When sanity becomes confusion

If I knew what I could lose
I would change for you
If I stumbled on the truth
I would change
If there's something I could do
To turn me into you
I would change, I would change

I would change, I would change, I would change, I would change for you

I would change, I would change, I would change, I would change for you

For you

For you

Shadows

Written By: B. Malpass, B. Chapin

Life is full of second guesses
You always seem to trip when time plays it’s game
Sometimes it’s hard to see the consequences
But you feel them everyday

This road’s so cold, how it will change

I won’t live my life in shadows
Hiding from what lies ahead of me
I will be strong now
That you are here beside me
Cause after all this time I've wasted, the hits I’ve taken, it’s all in vain
I will be strong now
That you are here beside me

I can’t afford to waste my time in situations
With no rhythm or rhyme
I’ll just try to keep my head up high
And whatever they throw me will just pass on by

This road’s so cold but now it will change

I won’t live my life in shadows
Hiding from what lies ahead of me
I will be strong now
That you are here beside me
Cause after all this time I've wasted, the hits I’ve taken, it’s all in vain
I will be strong now
That you are here beside me
Here beside me

Yeah yeah
That you’re here beside me
In this world I can’t believe
That you’re still beside me
Yeah yeah
Out of the dark and into the light
It’s hard to tell but I know it’s right
I’m not going down without a fight

I won’t live my life in shadows
Hiding from what lies ahead of me
I will be strong now
That you are here beside me
Cause after all this time I've wasted, the hits I’ve taken, it’s all in vain
I will be strong now
That you are here beside me

Better Days

Written By: D. Calitri, B. Chapin, N. Ossoff

4am and I’m walking a hole in the carpet
I’m my own worst enemy
All my demons dancing around in my head
Wearing out a hole in me

I hear you calling
Inside my head
And when I’m with you again

I look in your eyes and see
Better days, better days
You chase all the dark from me
Better days, better days

Sometimes I get so I forget to remember
But you see the glass half full
I don’t know how you keep your faith sometimes
But that’s so beautiful

When I’m falling
I fall back to you
You’re the one thing that’s true

I look in your eyes and see
Better days, better days
You chase all the dark from me
Better days, better days

I could spend my whole life struggling
Waiting for the clouds to break
You, you smile at me just like the sun
And that is all it takes

I look in your eyes and see
Better days, better days
You chase all the dark from me
Better days, better days

Better days, better days
Better days, better days
Better days, better days
Better days, better days

Worst in Me

Written By: C.Gangi, D. Somalinski

My life feels incomplete
Living with uncertainties
I can’t seem to find a voice
Of reason in this world
I’ll try my best to make things right
But everything seems to

Fall apart, fall away
Drifting farther every day
To grab the wheel and take control
Of the only life I know

I can’t seem to break these chains
I won’t smile for you today
It’s so hard, hard to believe
When you bring out the worst in me
The worst in me, the worst in me, the worst in me

We need to compromise
Or we’re left with nothingness
It’s so hard, hard to find
A reason not to get into
I’ll try my best to make things right
But everything seems to

Fall apart, fall away
Drifting farther every day
To grab the wheel and take control
Of the only life I know

I can’t seem to break these chains
I won’t smile for you today
It’s so hard, hard to believe
When you bring out the worst in me
The worst in me, the worst in me, the worst in me

Fall apart, fall away
Drifting farther every day
To grab the wheel and take control
Of the only life I know

I can’t seem to break these chains
I won’t smile for you today
It’s so hard, hard to believe
When you bring out the worst in me
The worst in me, the worst in me, the worst in me
The worst in me, the worst in me, the worst in me

You bring out the worst in me

Bring out the worst in me

Please Tell Me Why

Written By: E.McCain, S.Lynch, B.Chapin

From the very first time you walked by
No one else mattered once I looked into your eyes
This time it's no mistake, you gave me back my faith
Now I always want you by my side

Please tell me why
You make me laugh
You make me dry
You bring me down
You get me high
Please tell me why
You’re everything to me
Please tell me why

I'm having that same ol' dream again
And only you know how this one is gonna end
This time I've got no brakes can't stop from running away
I'm prayin' you'll save me, let me in

Please tell me why
You make me laugh
You make me dry
You bring me down
You get me high
Please tell me why
You’re everything to me
Please tell me why

Anything I asked for you gave it
You never hesitated
My whole life I’ve waited
Words cannot explain it
With one touch…..girl you say it

Please tell me why
You make me laugh
You make me dry
You bring me down
You get me high
Please tell me why
You’re everything to me

Please tell me why
You make me laugh
You make me dry
You bring me down
You get me high
Please tell me why
You’re everything to me
Please tell me why
