Carman Bryant Phase 5 Records firstname.lastname@example.org York Pa. born and raised, R&B vocalist Carman Bryant has performed throughout the U.S. and all over the world. There’s a saying in the Harrisburg/ York Pa. area “if you want a seat, you better get there early” for a performance by Carman Bryant and her band Positive Flow. Carman’s new release “Midnight Star” is a remake of her previous unreleased recording that was produced many years ago by Cecil DuValle of the Teddy Pendergrass band. The original studio masters were lost when Cecil moved to England when Teddy stopped performing. Philadelphia producer Wendell Holmes stepped in to produce the song by keeping some of the original ideas. With the help of June Payne formally of the group Three Degrees. June created the new background vocals most definitely TSOP, (The Sound of Philadelphia). Carman and her son Terrell Bryant aka Nakuu both have been busy lately recording new music to hit the scene around the same time. Terrell Bryant is the son of Jason Bryant, who started The SOS Band. PHASE 5 RECORDS was started in the Germantown section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1980 by Douglas Payne shortly after completing the Sister Sledge (We are Family) tour. Similar to Motown this house located in the 5600 block of Baynton Street contains a recording studio. The studio was used by other artist such as Eddie Holman, Richard Waller, Z’hane, Charlie Brown’s Coaster, Frank Alstin, The Dreamlovers and many others to rehearse and demo their music for live performances. The label released several records by Doug Payne & Polygon, Stan Arrington, Steve Byrd, U-Turn & Sam Davis. Each artist controlled the recording and promotion of their music. Douglas felt that eventually artist would own their own labels and control the sales and promotion of their music. With the rise of technology that time is finally here.
