Especially, with his most recent single release “We Are The Same” which is garnering critical acclaim! "Music is life that lives forever. If the only thing that I can do in this world is take one person out of a daily cycle of misery, heartache, anxiety, frustration, and any other drama that goes along with our life...for just a few minutes...then I truly will feel like I am doing the best that I possibly can to help bring joy to people's lives." - Dylan Lloyd

Aurora Blue 16th Release From Fusion Composer Gary Paul Bryant

The fact that two minute, thirty-eight second 'Smokin Mirrors' from Fusion composer Gary Paul Bryant's latest EP release is debuting at number one on Soundclick's Jazz Fusion charts is no surprise.

Gary's 16th instrumental release jumps into uncharted fusion territory. Defying genre and tradition, Aurora Blue melds the sophistication of jazz with power rock, classical and world elements to create a unique progressive fusion that sometimes hints of Yes, King Crimson and Pink Floyd.

Before the advent of today's digital recording technology, this talented pianist-cum-guitarist got a decidedly lowbrow start in the music business. "When I was just a little kid, three years old, we got a piano. A couple of neighbors dropped off an old upright piano in exchange for a few cans of beer. I took piano lessons for about 3 weeks, that was all the piano teacher could take. I couldn't get through a single piece of music that my teacher gave me because I would improvise as I went. I'd get one or two minutes into a piece and then I'd just go off and start making things up."

All six Aurora Blue compositions are available via download or stream from the usual cadre of music distribution channels including,,, Rhapsody, Spotify and Amazon Digital to name a few. Additionally, 'Smokin Mirrors' is the featured song in Gary’s latest YouTube video entitled 'Abra Dabra' and includes some very fancy choreography from Fred Astaire.

Gary is a member of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) and is a five-time ASCAP+ award-winner. He also belongs to The National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (NARAS).
