If Christian music had held an election for a jokester, a wise guy, or a class clown during the mid-1970s through the late 1990s, Bryan Duncan would have been a perennial contender. All you have to do to get a little insight to his sense of humor is read some of his solo album titles and cover art. His debut solo record, “Have Yourself Committed” came out in 1985. And there was the 1991 “Anonymous Confessions Of A Lunatic Friend.”
Bryan was one of the founding members of Sweet Comfort Band in 1973. That group had 6 albums during the latter phase of the early “Jesus music” period. The band went their separate ways in 1984 (though they did get back together for a reunion album in 2013) and Bryan started a solo career.
He quickly landed a solo record deal and since 1985 has released 17 solo albums with 16 number one Christian radio hits. His 1993 “Mercy” was perhaps his most successful, yielding five solid radio singles that dominated the Christian charts for almost two years.
Bryan struggled with success, addiction and recovery, but he continues to minister, record and perform.
Here’s the #1 1993 Christian radio single, “Love Takes Time” from the album “Mercy.”
