Musician collaborates with poets to produce album

Posted

A new album represents the collaboration between local poets and St. Augustine musician Ryan Bozeman.

The “re:covery” album was released on Monday, May 9.

Bozeman, who records under the name “brotherwell,” reached out to Chris Bodor of Ancient City Poets in the name of collaboration and in the creative spirit of breaking out of pandemic-induced isolation. The result is an album featuring 13 spirited and invigorating tracks.

It is available for purchase on iTunes and Bandcamp and can be streamed on Spotify, Amazon Music and other places.

“We are not taking a penny here,” said Bozeman. “All proceeds will be donated to Tiny Changes, a charity established to help and heal young minds who are troubled.”

“Tiny Changes was born out of a really sad event, the death of my brother Scott,” said Neil Hutchinson, founding trustee and Tiny Changes CEO.

Scott Hutchinson was a founding member and primary songwriter of the indie rock band Frightened Rabbit. The musician disappeared on May 9, 2018, and his body was found the following day in a Scottish riverbank.

The album’s tracks are: “Synesthesia and The River Song,” Belinda Subraman and brotherwell; “The Fight of My Life,” Jared Morningstar and brotherwell; “Landslide,” Ari Whipple and brotherwell; “The Existential Campfire,” H.M. Kanicki and brotherwell; “Present Moment Bliss,” Chris Bodor and brotherwell; “Transtheoretical Model of an Armchair,” Amanda Morningstar and brotherwell; “Feats of Alchemy,” Donny Winter and brotherwell; “[Un](re)cover(y)[ed],” Amee Schmidt and brotherwell; “The Salvage Yard,” Matthew McGuirk and brotherwell; “Still On My Feet,” Aaron Woodson and brotherwell; “The Moment Before the World Wakes Up,” Aleathia Drehmer and brotherwell; “Railroad Earth,” Mike Zone and brotherwell; and “Reforged from Falling Stars,” Donny Winter and brotherwell.
