‘The Water’ is the haunting new release from UK singer-songwriter, Bright Smoke

Bryony Marie Fry also known as Bright Smoke is an artist, musician, writer, poet and aspiring music producer based in Bristol UK.

Bryony experienced a creative upbringing in The New Forest, and she had a strong connection to the Irish folk music scene, learning to play various traditional instruments at a very young age. Progressing into an acoustic singer songwriter, and performing for many years under her full name: ‘Bryony Marie Fry’. She played a variety of festivals including Glastonbury, Glade, Southsea Fest and Strummer of Love, and supported artists such as Wolf Alice and Bastille.

But after a long break due to a personal recovery from addiction, Bryony’s music evolved to envelope a multitude of genres and influences, including the Cocteau Twins, Björk, Sigur Ros, emotive cinematic soundtracks such as Drive, Lost In Translation, and The Beach, not to mention the cocktail of Tim and Jeff Buckley, Billie Holiday, Nick Drake, and an array of the obscure, avant-garde, and psych. She now performs under her stage name: Bright Smoke.

She is currently self-producing her debut album, using a heavy amalgamation of analogue and electronic, with flutes, synths, cellos and electric guitars, and close-harmonies that are somewhat choral-esque as they build.

Bryony has been accepted by AWAL (Kobalt Music) and is self-releasing two more singles from her debut album, before officially releasing the album at a date to-be-confirmed later this year, (2018). She is also studying a Music Production degree at BIMM Bristol, working towards another solo and group art exhibition, and continuing to promote her debut poetry book, that was published by PRNTD Publishing in November 2017.

‘The Water’ is available now to purchase from Apple Music and stream via all major digital outlets.
