–Jeff Polk, LEO Weekly

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Dec. 13, 2023) – Hard rock and metal singer-songwriter and independent recording artist David “Sailor” Bryant recently debuted his newest groove metal music project called Warplan, with a supremely produced studio EP dubbed The Snake-Eye Conspiracy that is available now everywhere digitally including Apple Music, Spotify and BandCamp. Bryant laid down the raucous tracks in Nashville at The House of Blues recording studio where he collaborated with Music City based rock musicians and producers Kile Odell (Nita Strauss, Motionless in White) and Jameson Force (My Hero Is Me) to breathe all the lyrics he wrote out into musical life. 

Many of the songs on the EP explore sentiments and feelings that are rooted in frustration, anger, and disgust towards many of society’s modern day absurdities like the technology takeover, excessive greed, lies and endless wars. The EP is firmly anchored by its most powerful track “Unmerciful,” which features a co-write with another Louisville music staple Bryan Fox (End of Me). Bryant, Fox and co-writers Odell and Jameson all also recently collaborated together in an as-yet-to-be-released music video filmed and directed by Clayton L. Luce, which will premiere in early 2024. “Unmerciful” was also recently lauded by LEO Weekly and appeared among their selections for The Best Local Songs of 2023 [click here to read]

“During the writing of ‘Unmerciful,’ I was secretly dealing with anger, resentment, betrayal and depression issues,” Bryant admitted. “I think we all sometimes suffer in silence in some way, shape or form, until those emotions can no longer be contained. Thankfully I have had music to exorcise these negative emotions. Mental health issues are a big problem in the world today and we all need a time and place to proactively vet them out before the destruction sets in.”

About David “Sailor” Bryant:

David “Sailor” Bryant is a multi-talented singer-songwriter and recording artist from Louisville, Kentucky whose vocal talents have been expressed across multiple genres of rock music. He is best known for his work as the lead vocalist for Century Media Recording Artist My Own Victim, along with several prominent independent musical projects from Kentucky. His genre-hopping approach has led him to forming hard rock and metal bands like Surviving Thalia, SxWxP (Saint Whiskey Prophecies), The Scars of Judas and more recently, groove metal band Warplan

Bryant is also a major creative force and songwriter behind the alt-country acoustic studio project 16 Bones, collaborating with prominent Louisville-based recording artist and songwriter Bryan Fox (End of Me). Bryant’s diverse vocal style and guitar playing allows him to shift from the extremes of his hard rock and metal projects to the extreme somber and down-trodden vocal approach in 16 Bones, where he writes songs with Bryan Fox of abandonment, loneliness, solitude, loss and unimaginable amounts of pain.

Sailor is typically regarded as one of the greatest on-stage performers and front men from Louisville, Kentucky’s niche hard rock and metal music scenes. He’s known for giving highly animated on-stage performances and sporting a tell-it-like-it-is attitude, which became emblematic during his tenure with My Own Victim. As a vocalist, Bryant draws and credits many inspirations from metal and rock icons like Phil Anselmo (Pantera & Down), Zakk Wylde (Black Label Society), Rob Flynn (Machine Head), Ryan McCombs (Soil), Travis Meeks (Days of the New), Dax Riggs (Acid Bath) & Ivan Moody (Five Finger Death Punch). 

Bryant’s latest musical endeavor Warplan was conceived as a studio project and brought to life in Nashville, Tennessee at House of Blues recording studio by musicians and producers Kile Odell (Nita Strauss, Motionless in White) and Jameson Force (My Hero Is Me). Bryant is now working on turning Warplan into more than a studio project which means there are definitely great things from this project on the horizon and into 2024.
