Songwriter Series: An evening with Bryan John Appleby
Show one of our second annual backroom Songwriter Series features Bryan John Appleby.
Bryan John Appleby is a singer/songwriter and composer living in Seattle, WA. After moving to the Pacific Northwest from Central Coast California in 2007 as a drummer in short-lived indie rock outfit, Bryan switched his focus to guitar and spent several seasons penning the songs that comprised his 2009 EP Shoes for Men and Beasts. Bryan's early live shows many of which took place at open mic nights, dubbed "the batting cages" quickly earned him a reputation as a notable lyricist and a compelling solo performer, often surprising crowded bars and basements to a heady, affecting silence with his clear voice and intricately crafted lyrics.
Over the next few years, Appleby crafted a more expansive batch of songs, and the increasing involvement of a live band added complex and often unexpected instrumental layers to live performances.
Following a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign to make possible 2011's debut LP release Fire on the Vine, he and the band spent much of the next year touring, most significantly in a spot supporting The Head and the Heart's national tour.
