Bryson is the newest (that means the youngest), member to make his appearance on these albums. His rich deep bass voice can't be mistaken. He adds a timbre to the vocals that you can't teach, it just is. Bryson plays the Cello, Piano and sings. He performed and was a soloist with Clayton Productions performing across the nation. Add in Madrigals, A'capella and his school orchestra and you can see he was a versatile performer. He's led choirs, and even did some dancing in a stage production group. Still deciding what he wants to do with his future, we're glad he added his talents to this project.
