Laura Bryna becomes voice of AIr National Guard
Tuesday, May 27, 2008
– Laura Bryna was picked as the voice of the advertising campaign for the Air Guard, a branch of the military that has a state and federal mission to actively support the needs of the country and the nation's homeland defense. There are currently over 140 Air Guard bases in the United States.
Bryna will record a special song called "Hometown Heroes," which will be used in the campaign. Bryna will also be featured in an accompanying music video, appear in print ads and perform at a series of concerts throughout the summer.
An Air Guard representative saw Bryna perform songs from her new CD, "Trying To Be Me," at a CD launch event in January. "We are delighted to have Laura Bryna on our team," said Lt. Colonel Randy Johnson, Director of Recruiting and Retention for the Air Guard. "Her tremendous energy and her willingness to do what it takes to get things done exemplify the Air Guard Warrior spirit. It's a real privilege to work with her, and we are excited to have Laura, Equity Records and her team as part of the Air Guard's advertising campaign."
"I'm so honored that the Air Guard has chosen me to represent them," said Bryna. "Like any good citizen, I want to do my part in serving our country and can't think of a better way than by helping to spread the good word and good works of the Air Guard. I have the utmost respect for the men and women who serve our country. If I can play a part in helping bring awareness and support to their mission, then I've done my job."
A special kickoff concert for the campaign will be held early this summer in Washington, DC. The new song, "Hometown Heroes," will be added to Bryna's recently released debut album, "Trying To Be Me," as part of a second printing. The disc originally was out in January.

Newcomer Laura Bryna's background includes as much acting as it does music, a history that shows up clearly in her debut CD. The vocals have a theatrical quality with lots of character in the phrasing. Bryna uses that to good effect on some tracks - it works well with the 'sassy chick' vibe on "Same Dog" and "No Man's Land." She also manages to give life to a bland hotel room, "Room 228."
