About

Bryan Deister

Spines of the Heart took me three years to write and it’s an almost too personal album, but that is what it had to be.  There was a lot of direct experience that I wrote from, but there was equally as much that came from somewhere else and I just barely caught hold of it.  Some is rooted in tradition and then purposefully unrooted, and this may give the listener at times some laughter, but at the core the album is simply meant as a memento mori.  But I have never intended to say anything and so if I gave a contrary impression than I guess I succeeded.
