You may know of McAlister from his work with Sufjan Stevens and Bryce Dessner of The National. With a stamp of approval (not that he needed any!), Bryan’s songs are heartfelt and captivating as each piece takes you on a wild and whimsical ride through his mind and soul. Based in Chicago, you can feel the spirit of his music within every listen. Showstoppers include “Pour One Out,” and the title track “Give In,” which you can watch and listen to below.
Bryan Away is an artist that surely is on our radar in the New Year. His new EP, “Give In” is a charming release from start to finish that brings the soul and essence of his music to life. His songs are an immersive experience that bring his music to life. For the release Bryan called upon the legendary James McAlister to the table to produce.
The 5-track EP packs a great deal of sonically alluring sounds that spans the themes of loss, longing and isolation…something that relates to most if not all on some level. His heavenly vocals and bold and steady instrumentation bring a bit of light into the darkness, as he carries us away one song at a time.
