Bio

How does one translate and distill journey and inspiration into music? The fjords of Scandinavia; a road trip canvassing America’s national parks; the excitement of a home town’s bubbling creative scene? Bjear is an attempt at capturing an idea - a bigger dream and picture - than Adelaide has come to both expect and represent. With malleable songs, set-lists, and lineups that breathe and change, Bjear - as a solo performance from creator and curator Brae McKee, or a packed stage full of brass and strings - adapts to tell the fitting story and narrative of the time.

a soaring, polished epic to stir up emotion in even the most resolute.

I mean, I suspected that this track would crescendo but even with with that in my head, the build to release got me real good.
