Bryan Chambers is a name synonymous with house music. His silky smooth tones have been lighting up dancefloors worldwide for over a two decades. It all began for Bryan with a chance meeting at an open mic club in the early 90’s that put Bryan in touch with Jody Sharpe. Jody at the time, was in the process of launching Reel 2 Real, in the UK. The electronic and reggae influenced band headed by superstar Erick Morillo. She introduced him to Erick and Bryan went on to sing all the backing vocals for this hugely successful dance act. This was the platform Bryan needed to launch his solo career.
Bryans first project was Hyper Go Go on Positiva Records, tracks included “High”, “Never Let Go” and “Raise Your Hands” which all went on to storm the charts becoming Top 5 dance chart hits and Top 30 chart hits. Hyper Go Go also gave Bryan the chance to work with legendary dance artists such as Barbara Tucker, The Pet Shop Boys, and Layo & Bushwacka. Following Hyper Go Go Bryan went on to form Umboza also with Positiva, which scored him further Top 20 chart hits with “Sunshine” and “Cry India”.
In the early 2000’s, a collaboration with soulful house music dons Bobby&Steve from the Zoo Experience led to two major Top 5 tracks in the DJ Hype and Dance charts; “Got To Be Free” and “Higher Love”. During this time Bryan was in high demand, touring clubs up and down the country with huge success. August 2000 Bryan was approached by the newly formed Defected Records about singing the vocals on a track. The track, which started out originally as a cut made-up specially to play at the Miami Winter Music Conference by production team Cleptomaniacs, was a cover of the classic Stevie Wonder song “All I Do”. This beautiful track was released in January 2001 and became an instant club classic which is still played out in clubs the world over to this day. It hit number 17 in the national charts and was number 1 in every dance chart across the country.
Since the major success of “All I do” Bryan has gone from strength to strength being one the most in demand backing vocalists in the country working with icons such as Grace Jones, Prince, Beverley Knight, Jools Holland and Squeeze. And just when you think it couldn’t get any bigger or better Bryan was invited to join the legendary David Gilmour aka Pink Floyd a two-year world tour to performing both lead and backing vocals.
Bryan can be seen in no less then 3 iconic DVDs: “David Gilmour - Live in Pompeii - Rattle That Lock tour” which went to number 1 on the worldwide music DVD chart. “Bros Reunion – Live at the O2” as well as their hugely successful documentary “After the screaming stops” which went on to win a both a National Film Award in the UK and also a BAFTA for best documentary. And finally “Soft Cell Reunion 2018 - Live at the 02” as well as their documentary “Say Hello Wave Goodbye”.
Following this huge commercial success Bryan has returned to releasing some stunning solo work featuring on two current tracks with Danny Foster & Rogue called “So Good” and a remake of the Luther Vandross track “Better Love” both on DeeVu Records. He has also now gone full circle and has found himself back working with Bobby&Steve with a forthcoming release on Groove Odyssey Records. As well as returning to work with Defected Records on their Glitterbox label with a new track called “Holding On” with Aston Martinez & Marco Berto.
