Bryan Fenkart is just like you. The first thing you'll notice on his debut release 'Imperfect Man' are the lyrics. Bryan's introspective, highly-emotionally charged words strip him down to his human core, while at the same time magnetically drawing in the listener with uncanny accessibility and naked honesty. Never pretentious, frequently clever, and always real, Bryan has placed his finger on the pulse of his generation, and this album is what he found. The words are mingled with expertly performed pop/rock songwriting with sensibilities reminiscent of John Mayer, Marc Broussard, Ben Folds, and even the great Billy Joel. The songwriting is perfectly thought out and remarkably diverse. Combined with the masterful production of Charles Newman, the album takes you to a place that is equal parts polished and raw, epic and restrained, mainstream and indie. At times you'll find your feet tapping and your head bobbing, other times you'll find your heart breaking and your eyes welling with tears. But the whole time, you'll feel a sense of familiarity with the songwriting, almost as if you could have written the songs yourself. Bryan's beautifully arranged music and careful heartfelt storytelling is revealing and profound, moving and upbeat, fun and devastating. It conveys the monumental struggle that wages every day: Man vs. Their flaws. We all have our regrets. But rest assured, listening to this album won't be one of them.
