Dan Bryk Biography
Dan Bryk's still most-recent album "Lovers Leap" was originally released in 2000 by Scratchie Records to critical acclaim and a steadily growing audience appreciative of his classic pop stylings and literate, frequently confessional lyrics. Recorded with a talented cast of Toronto luminaries (including Kurt Swinghammer, Danny Michel, Howie Beck, Chris Warren, Kyp Harness, Renann and featuring members of the Supers, Jacksoul, Sarah Harmer's and Sarah McLachlan's bands) and mixed by Jim Rondinelli (Sloan, Matthew Sweet, Wilco) Lovers Leap packs a surprising punch for an indie rock album.

Bryk has shared stages with the cream of the new alt-pop singer-songwriters like Fountains of Wayne, Ron Sexsmith, Sarah Slean, and Hayden. Unapologetically Canadian, Bryk has toured throughout the US, toured Japan with Stephen Malkmus for Lovers Leap's release there, and is currently alternating between Toronto and his adoptive home of Raleigh, NC, working on two follow-ups: an expansive, full-band album titled "Pop Psychology" to be released mid-2004, and a lovingly recorded (literally) solo album of obscure covers out later in the year.

Fans of thoughtful, intelligent pop-rock would do well to keep an eye on Dan Bryk.
