This past summer, the high energy all-star remixes of Laura Bryna’s hit single “Stars are Falling” worked something of a high-impact musical miracle, giving us a much-needed burst of hope and inspiration (and yes, fun!) during a difficult, anxiety-ridden time. With her latest track, the infectious dance/pop jam “Way That It Was,” the veteran singer takes the “anthem that meets our collective moment” concept one thematic step further. Encapsulating our emotional exhaustion with this crazy new normal and hopes for future restoration, its words were originally written about a broken relationship but now have powerful universal applications: “Both of us knew it’d come back around sooner or later. . .Back to the Way that it was/It shouldn’t hurt but it does/Back to the way that it was.”
Prior to this latest batch of hit singles, Laura was perhaps best known for her military tribute “Hometown Heroes,” a track from her debut solo album Trying to Be Me which she wrote with Grammy-nominated songwriter Jeff Batson for a national campaign for the Air National Guard,
where she’s an honorary member and spokesperson. The song’s intention was to make people aware of what heroes in this branch do, from their work in Afghanistan to assist Border Patrol and hurricane relief.

2022 was a strong year for Nashville/LA-based country singer, Laura Bryna, having released multiple records over the course of just 12 months.
Breakout single, “Jawbreaker”, with its “sass and attitude” was released in the final quarter of the year, and has already been streamed over 0.5 million times. Likewise, its cinematic, flaming hot “Roadhouse meets Moulin Rogue” music video has accumulated over 1 million views on YouTube. Written by Bryna, Damon Sharpe, and Eric Sanicola – “Jawbreaker” is a female empowerment tour-de-force that has you pumping your fist from the very first listen! Grammy Award winner Damon Sharpe (Ariana Grande, Pitbull, J-Lo, Anastacia, Nelly) also produced the track along with the help of Michael Carey (Gwen Stefani, Idina Menzel, Escape The Fate) resulting in a song that Bryna describes as “encapsulating her very essence as an artist”
