From March 1962, at age 17, he became the youngest person in Australia to host their own TV show, The Bryan Davies Show. His most popular singles were, “Dream Girl” (July 1961) and “Five Foot Two Eyes of Blue” (October), which both reached the top 4 on the Sydney charts.

At age 17, Bryan became the youngest person in Australia to host his or her own TV show, The Bryan Davies Show, from March 1962, broadcast for 75 episodes on ABC TV. From December 1963 to January 1964 Bryan appeared in Once upon a Surfie, a youth oriented musical, at the Palace Theatre, Sydney with Jacki Weaver, Dig Richards, Lucky Starr, Rob E G, and Jay Justin.

In February 1967 he re-entered the Sydney charts top 20 with “Alberta”, his last hit recording. According to Australian musicologist, Ian McFarlane, “by the late 1960s Bryan had moved into cabaret and television work.”
