Bryan Lubeck – Midnight Sun

617WGYUdggS._SS500_An editor with Billboard Magazine once said that Bryan Lubeck weaves a tapestry of fiery Spanish Guitar and cool Urban Grooves into exhilarating and romantic live shows and recordings. The striking and sensitive ballads coupled with the exciting flamenco styles from his CD’s have proved to a new generation of music lovers that the contemporary elegance of Spanish guitar is more powerful today than ever before when combined with the grooves of his Latin and urban band.

His first performance in the Smooth Jazz genre was with Tower of Power superstar saxman Richard Elliot – after a standing ovation Bryan believed he might have hit on something and began work on an instrumental CD “Acoustic Vineyard”.   His goal was for people to be able to listen to a CD front to back while chilling on the deck with a glass of wine…smooth. Over 10,000 CD’s sold initially told him he hit the right chord with wine focused music and Vineyard Groove – his second CD was born again to rave reviews and it was even used as a theme song to Microsoft’s product launch at the time.  

Following that he worked with Billboard top 10 artist Johannes Linstead on a Holiday CD “We Three Strings” which was ranked by legendary radio promoter Rick O’Dell as one of the top 10 holiday CD’s of ALL TIME in any genre.  Four songs for the album can still be heard on major radio stations every holiday season.

His most recent release “Tuscan Sky” has garnered the best reviews to date and included 3 Grammy award winners in project.   Its spent 15 weeks in the top 40 of the Smooth Jazz radio charts and the single Tuscan Sky was listed by Billboard as one of the top 5 songs added to radio. Just arrived is his brand-new album Midnight Sun (2021).

The album is available on all major digital platforms.
