Steven Bryan effortlessly effuses Italian charm in his smooth indie rock songs with influences ranging from Bob Dylan to Thom Yorke. Blessed with a soulful voice that alternates between smooth and rough tones, Steven fell in love with music at a very young age. Born Francesco Dell’Orco in Milan, Italy, he grew up listening to a range of folk, rock and roll, soul, and his father’s classical music collection. In his formative years, Steven spent quite a few summer holidays in New Jersey at his grandfather's, who was an Italian immigrant in the USA. It was during that period that he soaked up the influence of local heroes Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, Southside Johnny and Bon Jovi. In 1998 his first band, The Kids, were the toast of the town but it was not long before he caught the travelling bug. Landing in the UK in 2006, he played the acoustic London circuit garnering a love for all things British. It was during an exhaustive 30-date tour of the East coast of America in 2010 that the songs for the debut, self-released album “One Way” came into being. Steven’s debut album was described by the press as “an entertaining guide to some of the finer points of the musical anatomy, with vocals that have all the low-key passion of James Morrison and Paulo Nutini, the whimsical, yet intense, emotion of David Gray with a soulful, continental twist”. When back in London, his long-time friend and session bass player Dominic Giannetta put him in touch with an A&R guy at Universal, where Steven signed a worldwide deal in 2011. His debut single, “Puppets On TV”, released by Right Track Records/Universal on 26th September 2011, is a wry and raucous slingshot at the shallowness of “Reality TV” and has been produced by Chris Goulstone of Goldfrapp/Massive Attack fame at the legendary Chapel Of Rock in Wiltshire, South West England. "Puppets On TV" has been featured on BBC Radio 2, BBC London 94.9, Radio Caroline and Cool FM 97.4 in the UK. “It's like my entire life has been building up to this moment”, he says. “I am out to prove that in the end it’s all about the music – and enjoying the ride”.
