Hello,My name is Bryan Corder owner of the Magazine Thank you for taking the time to answer a few questions for Ignite Music Magazine.
Thanks you for your time and support Bryan!
First off, My Silent Bravery has a great message behind it,Who is My Silent Bravery? for our readers that may not know who you are?
My Silent Bravery is Matthew Wade and I am he : ) haha
How would you describe My Silent Bravery music ?
I like to describe it as inspirational acoustic driven pop rock!
Lets get into the new video that just came out. Great video, and song by the way! I wanted to ask you about the new video and song ” Warning Signs”. How did this song come about? The title/video lends itself to the meaning behind the sing to an extent but lets hear it from you.
Thanks for the kind words Bryan! ‘Warning Signs’ is a song to me about being so caught up in love that you can’t really see the reality of the situation. That there are all these red flags and warning signs that the relationship isn’t going to work out but that you are just too blinded by love to see them. This lyric hits home for me, “when you are in love, it’s all you can see”.
Your fifth album Breakthrough is coming out soon, Can you tell us a little about it? and what can we expect to hear with the rest of the album, are we going to hear more music like “Warning Signs”?
Breakthrough is my fifth full length LP and what I feel is my best work to date. A silver lining runs through this record and a lot of my music and that’s intentional. When I write songs or go out and play shows, I have learned that it’s not about me, it’s about the audience. I hope they’ll feel more uplifted than when they came. That’s what I want listeners to walk away with. I called the album Breakthrough because I hope listeners can relate to it with their own boundaries that they are trying to breakthrough. I dug deep on this one. This album has more songs on it than any prior records. The album was originally 10 songs, and I thought it was finished and it ended up being 13 songs. In regards to more music like Warning Signs, there are quite a few break-up songs on this record. More than any other record I believe. I think I get more personal on this record than any prior albums.
You had some great people that worked on this album, with the likes of producers including Grammy® Award-winner Mike Mangini (Joss Stone, David Byrne, Smash Mouth), Peter Zizzo (Avril Levine, Jennifer Lopez, Jason Mraz), and Anthony Resta (Elton John, Collective Soul, Guster), How was it working with such great talent?
It was awesome working with such pros. They are all great musicians and people. I feel blessed to have found such talented people to help me bring the music to life the way they have.
What did they bring to the table to make this new album what it is today?
They bring a great deal to the table. I can tell you that I have a lot of trust and faith and a great deal of respect for all of the guys I have chosen to work with. They are all extremely talented and one of the reasons I have chosen to work with them is that I like their production. I generally let them take the reins on arrangement and production as that is what I have hired them to do. There is a lot of discussion going on during the production process and I of course throw my $.02 in when I feel it’s necessary, or something is out of line with my artistic vision for the song.
You have had a lot of success in your career in the music industry, what are some of your goals you have achieved and what other goal do are you working on achieving?
I am very proud to be releasing my fifth album. I feel blessed to have worked with so many talented musicians and toured with so many great artists. I am grateful for every single fan that has leant me their ears. I have always been motivated and ambitious. I feel it is one of my life missions to help inspire and motivate others. I have a large desire to share my music and the positive message I believe it contains with the world. I am hoping to do it on an even bigger scale and reach millions of people.
You have a mini tour coming up with Elliott Yamin and Blake Lewis this fall, how excited are you to be working with these guys? and what is your favorite part about touring?
I am excited to tour with Elliot & Blake. We share the same booking agent and I have heard great things. I even remember watching them on AI. My favorite part of touring is performing and meeting and interacting with the fans.
Name one song you would like to be known for?
To Give (feat. Matisyahu) is probably the song I am most proud of. I love the message in the song and I am extremely proud of it. I try and perform it live as much as I can it shows due to its message and meaning to me.
If there was one song that you wish you would have written what song would that have been.?
That is a tough question! There are so many great songs. One that comes to mind is One Love by Bob Marley. I think the name says it all!
Alright..If there is anything else you would like to add here is your time….
