“He Brought Joy” – Bryan Andrew Wilson feat. the Wilsonettes

“He Brought Joy” Bryan Andrew Wilson feat. the Wilsonettes Bryan’s Songs / CE Music By Robert M. Marovich On the super up-tempo “He Brought Joy,” gospel stylist and Danville, Illinois, native Bryan Andrew Wilson contemporizes “I Can Tell the World,” a song first recorded about a century ago by the Taskiana Four and, as sung by Bertha Wise and the Wise Singers, is said to have inspired Roberta Martin to form the Roberta Martin Singers. Along with his wife Tiffany and mother Sheila as the Wilsonettes, Wilson injects plenty of Pentecostal fervor (and his band plenty of percussion) into this ...

“The Ride” – Bryan Andrew Wilson

“The Ride”Bryan Andrew WilsonBryan’s Songs / The Orchard(release date: February 26, 2021) By Robert M. Marovich Gospel music enthusiasts have heard Bryan Andrew Wilson grow up from  child soloist on the Mississippi Children’s Choir’s “His Eye is on the Sparrow” to the singer-songwriter cranking out mainstream gospel hits such as “Overflow” and JGM’s favorite, “Turning Away.” But as child stars from Shirley Temple to Michael Jackson could attest, fans tend to want to keep you forever young, permanently fixed as if in artistic amber.

“Just Fine” – Mama Sheila feat. Bryan Andrew Wilson

“Just Fine” Mama Sheila feat. Bryan Andrew Wilson Bryan’s Songs Records (2017) By Bob Marovich To a traditional gospel melody, a kick drum backbeat, and featuring preacher-style prompting from her son Bryan Andrew Wilson, Sheila Davis Wilson, as “Mama Sheila,” strings together familiar church sayings as her testimony about getting through a life with its ups and downs, including cancer “having its way with me.” A congregation of background vocalists serve as the response to her call about the goodness of King Jesus smoothing the rough ways. Sheila grew up in a gospel singing family, so traditional gospel is in her DNA.  ...

JGM Pick of the Week: January 9, 2017

“Whoa” Bryan Andrew Wilson Bryan’s Songs/CE Music Bryan Andrew Wilson opens 2017 with a well-crafted single whose message of encouragement is a life saver in the midst of a swirling rapid. “I see past my now / I know it will get better,” he sings, and as the music and voices build, so does the buoyancy of the message. Nevertheless, the musicians keep the drama at bay, rolling at an easy clip to let the lyrics do the heavy lifting. “Whoa” is a fine follow up to “Overflow” and much closer to “Turning Away” in appeal. Check out Bryan’s crystalline ...

“Overflow” – Bryan Andrew Wilson feat. Roderick Giles & Grace

“Overflow” Bryan Andrew Wilson Feat. Roderick Giles & Grace Bryan’s Songs Records (release date: January 2016) Bryan Andrew Wilson’s forthcoming single “Overflow” falls squarely within the current gospel appetite for brisk, mid-tempo P&W songs with easy to learn melodies and lyrics. As such, it seems ideal for praise team use. Wilson, along with Roderick Giles & Grace as background vocalists, and the musicians, build incrementally from zero to sixty in dynamics over the course of the four-plus minute selection. Giles, incidentally, formed the Southern Baptist Church (SBC) Chorale, which was a regional champ of Verizon’s “How Sweet the Sound” competition ...
