Peabo Bryson has established a career as one of the most premier male vocalists in contemporary music. Possessing a beautifully rich, almost operatic voice, this two-time Grammy® Award-winner has survived and prospered despite changes in popular musical trends.

With twenty albums to his credit, Peabo Bryson has enjoyed an unprecedented, across-the-board level of international success. He also 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 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 also a love for music. “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, from Sam Cooke to Little Richard, and even Billie Holiday. Sam Cooke was a great influence on me. His voice had a pure quality—straight from the heart.”
