ABOUT THE ARTIST

C. Anthony Bryant a native of Washington, DC has been performing since the age of two.  A sought after vocalist, vocal instructor, teacher, composer, choral conductor and coach, Bryant has performed in houses of worship, clubs, and concert halls, both in the United States and abroad. 

Having earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia (2005), and a Master of Music degree from the Manhattan School of Music, New York, NY (2007); Bryant truly is a master of his craft and instrument. Bryant is known to have a unique instrument and the uncanny ability to perform in many styles and genres of music.  From classical to gospel, from pop to jazz, Bryant is comfortable with it all. 

Bryant has shared the stage with and performed background vocal work for many artists; Yolanda Adams, Karen Clark-Sheard, Daryl Coley, and Chaka Khan to name a few.  In 2003 Bryant was asked to join work on the soundtrack for the motion picture, “Fighting Temptations”, which afforded him the opportunity to work with Shirley Caesar and participate in backing vocals for Beyonce’ Knowles.   

From 2003 to 2005 Bryant was a chorister with The Atlanta Opera and in 2006 was a principle soloist for the International Institute of Vocal Arts, Chiari, Italy. 

Not only at home on classical stages, Bryant gave his debut performance at Dizzy's Coca Cola with The Ulysses Owens Quintet in 2013.  This after ending a three month run of performances in The Kastel Lounge at New York’s Trump Soho with The Benny Reid Orchestra. 

Though best known for his stirring gospel, soul, jazz, and musical theatre performances, Bryant is winner of classical voice awards from The National Association of Teachers of Singing, and The Links Foundation.  

January 2015 saw the release of Bryant's debut solo album entitled “Hymnody vol. I”.  This album is a collection of hymns and sacred songs performed in various styles.  The project is available on iTunes and where ever digital music is sold. 

After serving as Worship Leader and Minister of Music for Youth at the Abyssinian Baptist Church of New York City from 2008-2015, Bryant now serves as Vocal Director for First Corinthian Baptist Church, Harlem, NY.  Bryant also serves as the principle music instructor at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School in Harlem and as an adjunct voice instructor at The New School in the City of New York.
