World Premiere: O'Bryan is a "Good Man" in return

(August 20, 2019) O’Bryan rose from humble beginnings in the greater Jacksonville area of North Carolina during the early 1980s to become one of the mainstays of R&B radio. Guided by Soul Train creator and host Don Cornelius—who co-wrote some of his biggest hits, including “The Gigolo” and “Lovelite”—O’Bryan delivered four albums demonstrating his durability as both a balladeer and funky tunesmith with a distinctive tenor vocal approach.

Although he went MIA for several decades, O’Bryan’s been gradually building his career back up since 2007, beginning with the comeback CD F1rst and, more recently, via standout singles such as “One More Try” and “What I Want.” Now, he’s continuing to shine with a strong slow-jam that hearkens back to his signature ‘80s ballads while offering a thoughtful answer to another artist’s classic from the period: “Superwoman,” the L.A. Reid & Babyface-penned anthem made famous by Karyn White.

Says O’Bryan of “Good Man”: “The song tells the story of the everyday man that works purposely, diligently, and lovingly to uphold the vows, values, and standards of the common, everyday good man. In many respects, it’s every bit the anthem for men as ‘Superwoman’ is for women.”
