Alt/folk fusion artist Bay Bryan releases ‘Golden’ out now on Kycker
Originally hailing from the Rockies of Colorado, Bay Bryan is a Manchester-based singer-songwriter and theatre maker. Their imaginative and cinematic songs have garnered praise from notable music publications, with “Sweet Joan” recently featured on BBC Radio 3’s “Inside Music.” Blurring the lines between music and theatre, Bay’s performances are engaging & immersive experiences that transport audiences into a vivid world of stories and dreams.
Golden is the second track in Bay’s concept album ‘The Meadow’ and it feels like that “Once upon a time” track that is setting the scene for the album’s journey as a whole. It sets up this idea of the meadow: an idle setting endlessly washed in a summery golden yellow light. A place where we can come to and immerse ourselves in. It’s dreamy, optimistic and pure.
Bay says “I came running away from reality to escape into my meadow. A daydream of my own design where everything is golden –safe, uncomplicated and free…”
“One of the best things I’ve heard in a very long time… It feels like you’re listening to Nick Drake for the first time or John Martyn or Labi Siffre. It’s remarkable… F£$K ME.” – Luke Una (video on instagram)
“Beautifully phrased and swimming with surprising melodic turns, ‘The Meadow’ is a wonderfully written, highly evocative work. Influenced by folk but with wisps of modern classical and orchestral arrangements, providing a perfect backdrop for Bay’s stunning vocals without overpowering them.” Piccadilly Records (full write up)
“A timeless and mystical music creation.” – RGM (full review)
Bay released their debut album “The Meadow”, a concept album that tells a poignant story about someone trapped in an endless daydream, struggling to let go and move on to the next chapter of their life. With an air of playfulness, naiveté mixed with melancholy and bitter-sweet longing, “The Meadow” is a transformative exploration of a world between fantasy and reality.
