Member of LMNT

Background:

First coming to the attention of public as a finalist on ABC Television’s music reality phenomenon “Making the Band” (2000), singer and songwriter Bryan Chan gained further popularity as part of the multi-cultural pop music boy band LMNT until the band split in 2006. LMNT had one studio album (“All Sides”) in 2002 and a hit single called “Juliet.” The group also recorded soundtracks for “The Lizzie McGuire Movie” and “Kim Possible.” Chan has been compared to the quality of James Ingram, the appealing intensity of Train’s Pat Monohan, and the apparent ability to present a pop ballad like Edwin McCain.

Chan loves camping, rafting and fishing.

Making the Band

Career:

Bryan Chan entered the music industry when he became one of the finalists on the first season of the reality television series “Making the Band” (2000). In the following year, he joined Ikaika Kahoano, Mike Miller, Jonas Persch and Matthew Morrison in a multi-cultural pop music boy band called LMNT. The group headlined the pop act at the Linda Creed Breast Cancer Foundation Benefit Concert held in South Jersey in the spring of 2002. The same year, the group was featured on the cover of the debut issue of the entertainment quarterly R&B Showcase Magazine along with Richard Street.

In the summer of 2002, LMNT toured the United States as part of  the Pop 'Til You Drop! Tour, a 30 date tour headlined by A*Teens with other supporting acts like Baha Men and Play. Additionally, the group performed live in support of the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, 2002 A Time for Heroes Carnival, in Los Angeles, California.   

LMNT released a debut album called  “All Sides,” in 2002. It included the single “Juliet,” which became the most requested and most played song on the Radio Disney Network in 2003 and continued to run on top 10 countdowns throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia, and a cover of country singers Tim McGraw and Faith Hill's 1997 duet, “It's Your Love.”

In between two successful tours, including one with Britney Spears, the band managed to record for several recent soundtracks, including the double platinum album for “The Lizzie McGuire Movie” (2003), which featured the title ballad “Open Your Eyes to Love.” Also in 2003, the group recorded the song “It's Just You” for the Kim Possible Soundtrack, which reached No. 125 on the Billboard 200.  The group re-recorded their own version of “A Whole New World” from Disney's Aladdin, for the “DisneyMania 2 CD” (2004), which topped the U.S. Top Kids Audio.

LMNT disbanded in 2006, and Chan is now working on his first solo project.
