Encouraged by buddies from Seattle sensations The Head and the Heart and Campfire OK, Bryan John Appleby set out to make his first full-length album, Fire on the Vine. Thank goodness Bryan has such good friends, because the end result is a musical joy that has already become commonplace on our iPod rotation.
His music is indie-folk tinged Americana with unexpected composition and elegant vocal harmonies. And apparently we aren’t the only ones impressed with Bryan’s work – to finish his album, he raised more moolah than necessary via a Kickstarter campaign.
This PacNW newcomer is celebrating his album release tonight at the Columbia City Theater, supported by another of our local favorites, Gabriel Mintz. If you can’t make it tonight, never fear! Bryan is playing again on 8/4 at The Triple Door for a benefit show. By the way, we think Bryan’s video below, paddling through the Arboretum near 520, is just brilliant.
7/30 Bryan John Appleby / Gabriel Mintz / Good Luck Number @ Columbia City Theater :: 9:00 PM :: Tickets are $8
