Laura Bryna signs with Equity Music Group
Tuesday, January 24, 2006
– Laura Bryna signed a deal with Equity. Bryna has been a long-time supporter of and has co-written a song about the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which is how the label first became aware of her.
"Laura has spent almost her entire life as an avid supporter and volunteer for the Make-A-Wish Foundation," said label head Mike Kraski. "Even as a child, she organized activities to raise money for the foundation, and spent a considerable amount of time working to make kids' wishes come true. Turnabout is fair play and now it's time for us to make her greatest wish come true. And after hearing her sing, I can tell you it's the music fan who will greatly benefit from this wish."
Bryna grew up in a small town in rural Maryland. Shortly after moving to Nashville, she interned at Sony Music Publishing and DreamWorks Publishing companies.
Bryna has begun work on her debut CD , recording with producers Roger Sarchet and Jay Lillagore. A first single should be released by early to mid summer this year.
