A NOTE FROM BRYN:
The title chosen for me at birth was Bryn Scott-Grimes and I've chosen to keep it. It's most fitting for a chocolate-haired, hardy little eggplant who refused to open his eyes when he first emerged from his mother’s womb on the living room floor one morning in May near the end of the 1st millennium.
Since then, I've learned to play instruments, write and produce songs, build recording studios, and cook a mean omelette.
I am inspired by others who do the same, people who also value self-expression, self-assurance, the sublime, truth, aesthetics, identity, spirit, pain, play, music, and humanity.
My career title has always been tricky for me to pin down. I sometimes just opt for the simple ‘musician’, but the truth is no single title ever really reflects what any of us do or what we’re capable of. For example, besides mastering the harmonica and guitar, I have also spent a great deal of time writing, physically training, teaching, travelling, exploring my psyche, hosting others and researching and experimenting with nutrition, supplementation, and psychedelia. Does 'musician' really cover all that?
Over the years, I have ‘been’ many things: a paper delivery boy, airbnb host, personal trainer, sub-landlord, food-delivery driver, house painter, construction worker, dish washer, music teacher, recording studio owner, art dealer, handyman, boyfriend, son, sibling, friend, foe, entertainer, fool. All of these things have shaped who I am and who I’m becoming. I encourage you to try thinking in a similar manner - to think about the whole of yourself, rather than the part that you simply make money with, or the part that you choose to show the world (your 'persona').
I encourage you to explore my website, listen to my music, read my blog articles and take what you will from it - whatever will help you make better decisions and then be free of making decisions all together. It's the back and forth between those two states that makes for a rich, fulfilling, healthy, useful, moral and interesting life.
