BRY, THE Irish singer-songwriter, YouTuber, and blogger, plays an all ages show in the Róisín Dubh on Saturday April 23 at 6pm, and he remains determined to play every country in the world.
Bry, formerly known as BriBry, and who was born Brian O'Reilly, has put playing every nation on earth as No 1 on his bucket list. So far, he has played 59 of the current 195 independent sovereign states. Operating without a manager, booking agent, or record label for three years, he booked trips overseas, tweeting his intention to be in a certain city at a set time, and then waiting with his guitar to see who might show up.
This approach drew 80 people to Central Park in New York and 120 more to Tallinn, Estonia. This encouraged Bry to book more conventional venues, leading to sell-out tours in Australia, Ireland, and Britain in 2013/2014. Last year he joined Belle and Sebastian on Polar Patrol, the music publishing service. He is also with 13 Artists for representation and Mondo Management. Bry is currently at work on his debut album.
