Bryan Andrew Wilson Breaking New Ground in His Career


Dove and Stellar Award nominated singer/songwriter Bryan Andrew Wilson is breaking new ground in his career as his radio hit “Turning Away” has leaped to #20 on Billboard’s Gospel Airplay chart. The inspiring song of reflection anchors Wilson’s fifth solo CD “The One Percent” (EchoPark JDI Entertainment) that is available at Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Amazon, iTunes and other retail stores now.  “The first time I heard Turning Away, I knew it would affect people on an emotional level,” says EchoPark JDI Co-President Scott Cameron. “Bryan Andrew Wilson is a special artist and we at EPJ are blessed to have him on our roster”

The Black Gospel Blog’s Bob Marovich named the song his Pick of the Week a few weeks ago and also wrote that the song is “Wilson’s magnum opus and a contender for one of the best sounding gospel singles of 2014.” reporter Timothy Yap hails the song as “a breath of fresh air.”

Wilson’s calendar is filling up with events to promote the project. He kicks July off with a visit to Mt. Carmel Church in Indianapolis, IN and closes the month with a performance at The Jackson Music Awards in Jackson, MS. In between, he criss-crosses the country with a number of appearances at churches, community centers and other venues.

The musical roots of the project are soiled with rhythms ranging from Stevie Wonder-styled ballads and Motown Soul to Caribbean and Go-Go beats. “This album reflects who I am as a grown man and a believer more than any other album I’ve recorded,” Wilson says of the project that will be stocked in major chains such as Wal-Mart and also available online at iTunes and ““I’m excited about it because I put my all into it and wrote or co-wrote 10 of the 13 songs. There’s very little programming and the album has a really warm sound to it.

Wilson, who is also a dynamic preacher, made his big splash in the gospel pool as the ten year old soloist for “His Eye is on the Sparrow” with The Mississippi Children’s Choir in 1994.  His debut CD “Bryan’s Songs” was produced by the late Walter Hawkins, John P. Kee and Kirk Franklin. Wilson earned Dove and Stellar Award nominations for his music and made cameos on Malaco Records sessions with Rev. James Moore and LaShun Pace. After a recording hiatus to attend Claflin University and Princeton Theological Seminary, Wilson returned to the recording booth in 2008.
