Breaking York Special!

Tadcaster based singer/songwriter Bryony Drake is coming to the Two Rivers Radio broadcast lounge to play tracks from her new as yet unreleased EP plus a few extras. Live and exclusive to Breaking York and Two Rivers Radio

Bryony’s vocal style is unique – which is difficult to achieve when there are so many great vocalists out there. Her penchant for wrapping the emotional conundrum inside a dystopian enigma leaves your ears burning with a mixture of why me and a desire to stop the world and fix it.
You’ll fall in love with the characters in her songs as they wrench at your heart strings and stir your compassion for an artist whose talent is under appreciated – still unsigned Bryony is a vocal ruby surrounded by lyrical diamonds set in 18 carat gold.

Tune into Breaking York between midday – 1pm today!

Programme Schedule: 17/12/2018
