A native of Kansas City, Missouri, Betty Bryant, dubbed “Cool Miss B” by her fans and fellow musicians, is a revered pianist/singer who brings a solid piano technique, a light, swinging touch and a skilled vocal approach to her music.
Betty has released eight critically acclaimed CDs. Peter Solomon, of station WCVE – FM in Richmond, Virginia wrote, “I was struck by her laid-back phrasing. Her piano style sounds something like Basie. This woman has soul.” Her music is frequently heard on the soap opera “The Young and the Restless” and she recently packed Catalina’s jazz club for her annual Betty Bryant Birthday Bash Brunch.
In 2017 Johnny Whiteside wrote in the LA Weekly, “Betty Bryant always delivers a beguiling, signature combination of elegant funk, understated rhythm and warmly expressive vocals…..Bryant’s marvelously supple touch and well-chilled brand of jazz cool has made her a favorite from Rio to Tokyo to Beverly Hills…….an enchanting representative of a decidedly endangered species — the cocktail lounge singer, part entertainer, part oracle and, inarguably, all artist.”
