artist info

Double Grammy® and Double Oscar ® Award-Winning Balladeer, Peabo Bryson, is most recognized for his endless hits including timeless singles “Feel the Fire,” “I’m So Into You,” “Tonight, I Celebrate My Love” (with Roberta Flack) and “Can You Stop the Rain” as well as his Disney classics, “Beauty and the Beast” (with Celine Dion) and “A Whole New World” (Aladdin theme with Regina Belle).

In August of this 2018, Peabo released his 21st studio album, Stand for Love, as a 9-track masterpiece produced by the world-renowned, hit-maker duo, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis! Since then, the album has achieved great success including, but not limited to, the following:

~ 1st single, "Love Like Yours and Mine" was the #1 most added Urban Adult Contemporary (UAC) song this summer and peaked at #3 on Billboard's Urban Contemporary/Adult R&B chart where it held position on the list for 26 weeks!

~ 2nd single, "All She Wants to Do Is Me" continues to gain popularity among listeners and fans. The single was also featured earlier this year on the Showtime hit series, The Chi, AND it has been deemed the steppers anthem of 2018! What's more, the single has transformed into a full-blown line dance called the "Do Me," which has quickly become a viral sensation!

~ 3rd single, "Looking for Sade" has just been released with special guest Boney James and has already claimed its position as the #1 most added single at Jazz!

Mr. Bryson has established a career as one of the premier male vocalists in contemporary music of the last quarter century. Possessing a beautifully rich, almost operatic voice, this two-time Grammy Award-winner has survived and prospered despite the passage of time and changes in popular musical trends. With twenty albums to his credit, Peabo Bryson has enjoyed an unprecedented, across-the-board level of international success, Bryson has the distinction of being the first artist in music history to have separate records topping four different charts.

Acclaim and recognition are nothing new for this multi-talented singer, songwriter and producer. Born April 13, 1951, in Greenville, South Carolina, Bryson spent much of his childhood on his grandfather's farm in Maudlin, South Carolina. "I have two sisters and a brother, but I'm the oldest male in the family, so I was taught to work and work hard!"

Bryson's family not only instilled in him his work ethic, but a love for music as well. "My mother was a serious music lover. Whenever there was somebody great in town, she'd drag us along to catch their act. I have seen most of the greats of that period – Sam Cooke, Little Richard and even Billie Holiday. Sam Cooke was a great influence on me. His voice had a pure quality – straight from-the-heart." "I think the sensitivity in my songs stems from my early childhood. I was raised by women – my grandmother, until she died, and my mother. My grandmother was a woman who lived and loved with incredible passion."

For Missing You – the twentieth album of his career, his first in eight years and his first for Peak Records – Peabo Bryson continued to do what he does best on eleven tracks that showcase the broad palette of his skills. On "Count on Me" (produced by The Heavyweights) and "To Love About" (on which Peabo plays some driving acoustic lead guitar), Peabo proves he still has the goods to gracefully contend with today's younger R&B stalwarts. The title song "Missing You" was recorded as a tribute to his mother (Marie) and sister (Agnes) who have both passed away, and for his son-in-law who was serving in Iraq. Elsewhere, smoothies such as "Heavenly" and "Don't Give Your Heart" (produced by Barry J. Eastmond) and "My Last Goodbye" (produced by Peabo and Barry) reveal that, ultimately, he is in a class of his own.

Peabo Bryson is, at his intimate best, a legendary vocalist offering a timeless mix of pop and soul as only he can. Bryson has amassed a loyal fan base, critical acclaim and an avalanche of awards by being one of the "truly best friends" a song could ever have.
