CSReview Special with BRYANT STERLING

5 05 2013

Today’s special on CSReview is a feature on Bryant Sterling, formerly known as Denis Lee Bryant, singer, songwriter, producer and a record label owner.

Bryantpromo1-001In 2009, Bryant Sterling authored and performed a song that won him a prestigious VH-1 International Songwriting ‘Song of the Year’ Award as 1 of 52 Runners Up from well over 500,000 entries. Bryant’s singing had a special effect on the judges due to the song being deeply sensitive in nature. Bryant sang with love and care for his fellow men and women who are going through a rough patch in life. The song is called Times Are Hard.

The story behind the song has a real life connection. Bryant met a homeless woman who shared how she lost her life so to speak, after being fired as company’s CEO and then losing her family.  CSReview sent questions to Bryant, and today our followers have a rare opportunity to listen to Bryant’s answers in a recording he made specially for you. Bryant answers some really intriquing questions and shares stories he never told before. Click to listen:

Interview with Bryant Sterling

Lyrics of Times Are Hard:

I sat and watched the sun go down from a mountain top just over my town, that’s when it hit me like a busting dam, times are hard, yes times are hard.

A homeless woman on an old gray bike rolled up to me and stared with hopeless eyes, her hands were swollen from her life’s lost ride cause times are hard, yes times are hard.

Times are hard and they’re gonna get harder hands are out on every corner, dreams have gone like lambs to the slaughter cause times are hard. Look around its time for paying GREED is GOD and our own making, look at all that we’ve forsaken. Now times are hard, yes times are hard.

You give your life and soul to a company, years of work and they lost the money, and all they say to you is sorry, times are hard, oh times are hard.

Your life is changed in a New York minute you never thought you’d be caught up in it, soon despair turns into panic cause times are hard, yes times are hard.

Times are hard and they’re gonna get harder hands are out on every corner, dreams have gone like lambs to the slaughter cause time are hard, look around its time for paying GREED is GOD and our own making, look at all that we’ve forsaken now times are hard, yes times are hard.

What do you do when your hope has died and your standing on the other side looking back at a perfect world that’s gone, there’s no words that can describe what is real overwhelms the mind it’s gotta feel like you’ve been STRUCK BLIND, now that times are hard oh times are hard.

Times are hard and they’re gonna get harder hands are out on every corner, dreams have gone like lambs to the slaughter cause time are hard, look around its time for paying GREED is GOD and our own making look at all that we’ve forsaken now times are hard, yes times are hard.

I sat and watched the sun go down from a mountain top just over my town that’s when it hit me like a BUSTING DAM, times are hard, yes times are hard…
