BRY | The Academy
with special guest
Bry is an Irish singer/songwriter with a unique approach to life. Using social media as his vice, the young Irish man’s life goal is to travel to (and perform in) every single country in the world. Thus far, 62 countries have graciously been ticked off the list in just a few years.
Emboldened by the growth of his followers online, Bry saw the opportunity to take his music out of the online sphere and into the physical world. Operating without a manager, booking agent, or record label for 3 years, he booked trips overseas, tweeting his intention to be in a certain city at a set time, and then waiting with his guitar in tow to see who might show up. This approach drew 80 people to Central Park in New York and 120 more to Tallinn, Estonia, among others – tangible evidence of a loyal, committed community that was building. This encouraged the singer to book tours of more conventional venues, leading to sell-out tours in Australia, Ireland and the UK. Bry is currently at work on his debut album.
Bry brings Orla Gartland back to her Irish routes as she’s the special guest on his Irish leg of the tour. Having topped the independent charts with her latest EP “Lonely People” which led to a performances on The Late Late show. Orla, very much like Bry, directly connects with fans with up to 11 million views on her Youtube alone.
