Bryan Clees unveils country album

Bryan Clees puts a lot of energy into his musical performances.

But that lively entertainment, however, was the main reason for the delay in the new CD for Clees, whose family hails from Newington.

Clees and his band would play at clubs and restaurants every weekend for straight four years. All those engagements took their toll on Clees as the vocalist/musician/songwriter suffered a hyernated disc.

“My body was saying it was time to slow down,” Clees said. With his body healthy again, now it is time to speed up.

The singer will just that on Saturday when Clees holds an “Album Release Party” for his 10-song “The Best in Me” CD at the Island Grill in Port Wentworth near Interstate 95. The show starts at 8 p.m. No cover charge.

“It could be standing-room only,” said local promoter Troy Bohannon, of the restaurant/music venue that was chosen for its mid-way location between Sylvania and Savannah. “It is going to be an exciting night.”

“I’m nervous and estatic all at the same time,” Clees said of his upcoming June 20 performance.

The Saturday show is scheduled to conclude before 11 p.m. when those under the age of 18 are required by the establishment to leave. Clees plans to autograph T-shirts and CDs.

The “The Best in Me” CDs will be sold at Clees’ shows and after Saturday night at the Cotton Patch in downtown Sylvania. The CD also is available on-line on iTunes and CD Baby.

Bohannon said the Clees album has been selling well locally and the response to the music has been good.

During the 30 months he was out of commission as a performer, Clees and band members Sam Wood of Moundsville, W.V., and Michael Brown of Sylvania, made some album changes that Clees says changed the CD to be more like him. The injury became somewhat of a boost for the album.

“There were five we kept, five we tossed, and five we redid,” Clees said. “It is more or less my style. It is my own.

“It is actually a good thing,” Clees said the extra time. “We took out songs and it gave us more time to write.”

The CD, under the Goldbar Records label, contains modern and contemporary country tunes and new pop country with a rock influence.

“The album wouldn’t just appeal to one sort of crowd,” Clees said.

The song “Today Could Be My Day,” Clees said, is about wanting a better life.

“I was working at a job and got tired of that job,” he said. “I wanted to do something else. Something will be better tomorrow.”

Clees wrote the traditional country tune “Rootbeer Song” seven years ago and now the public can hear it too.

The singer describes “The Best in Me” as a “full-fledged rock-country.” “I love that one,” Clees said. “That was the one that was the most fun.”

Concurring with Clees, Bohannon said: “They are all good,” he said of the songs, “but that one, to me, is the best of all of them. ‘The Best in Me’ is strong.”

Songs from the album have played on the Augusta radio station airwaves. Savannah stations, Bohannon said, hopefully are next.

The other songs on the CD are “Anywhere Over You,” “Hands On Man,” “Til’ We Get Enough,” “Until You See Me,” “Need To Hear A Tune,” “Your Mine (Ava’s Song),” and “What I Have Done.”

Some of the songs that Clees and his band chose to remove from “The Best in Me” album are destined to be on Clees’ next album.

“We are already working on it,” said Clees, who is looking for a fourth member to join the band.

The album was produced by Andy McCraw and Ruben Cooper. The executive producer is Legends Entertainment for Goldbar Records.
