After a lengthy hiatus, O'Bryan formed his own label, Headstorm, and on Valentine's Day 2007 released the ballad-driven album “F1RST.” The set derived its name from what O’Bryan calls “the first step of a new musical journey,” highlighted by the songs “Just Like Doin’ It,” “Can I Kiss Your Lips,” “Man Overboard,” “Gotta Let You Go” and “Gratitude.” Longtime fans of the singer welcomed his return and responded to “F1RST” with enthusiastic reviews on music buyer-driven sites such as The first album, “Doin’ Alright,” was released in April 1982 and peaked at No. 10 on the Billboard R&B Albums chart. The lead single, “The Gigolo,” was a slice of funk with new wave and rock elements that emphasized O’Bryan’s falsetto. Released in January, “The Gigolo” peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard R&B Singles charts.

 

O’Bryan released his sophomore effort “You And I” in March 1983. The album was named after his cover of the Stevie Wonder ballad. Given a more contemporary twist, the title track was the second single (peaking at No. 19) and since has become one of O’Bryan’s signature songs.
