When pop music began, most artists spent a week or two recording and mixing an album. Chris Bryan just spent 16 months recording "The Sum of my Habits". Apparently, it's difficult to find time for the studio when you're finishing up college and student teaching. "The majority of the material for this album was created while grading essays and drinking red wine," Bryan admits. "I would give somebody a B+ and then run to my bedroom to write down a melody".
