We from aaahh-records share an affection for artists who love both travelling and fiddling about with crafts and techniqual equipment. Treasuring those features, our newest addition to the aaahh-family fits in perfectly. Hailing from America, Bryn Martin aka Bryyn is now living in Switzerland, where he does not only benefit from a pleasant tax system but beyond spent the last couple of years doing his Phd in engineering.
His affection for experiments and puzzling is not only useful for his profession but also a blessing for fans of independent music at the same time. Eager to work out his own individualistic tone, Bryyn’s songs are mostly guitar-based but mingle with all sorts of other instruments and sounds. Calling it „quirky brew of moog and acoustic melodies overlaid by hush vocals, conjuring comparisons to the initimate voicing of Andrew Bird and the pop hook of Regina Spektor“, Bryyn leaves us not much left to explain.
On his website Bryyn has created a breeding ground and platform for ideas, songs, demos and unifnished things that he is happy to share with audiences as well as full albums, all in all there are more than 200 songs available so far. This music lab animates visitors to state their opinion, download and use the musical material in the way of the creative commons. In total Bryyn’s songs have been downloaded more than five million times, reason enough for us to believe in that man being the pinnacle of creative energy.
Releasing and presenting you his album “House Plants”, which can be seen as a collection or so far best of album of his previously released 200+ songs, we hope to broaden your musical horizon and collect endless numbers of new Bryyn-Fans. We are chuffed and proud!
