Bryan Away
Bryan Away is the recording alias of Elliot Korte, a songwriter based in Chicago. Elliot has been writing and recording music his whole life, but kept it private until the release of his 2016 album, The Educated Youth, a complex and eclectic mix of songs exploring a coming of age.
For his upcoming EP, Give In, Elliot reached out to James McAlister (known for his work with Sufjan Stevens, Bryce Desner) who, impressed by his demos, agreed to produce and perform drums. The five track project explores personal themes of loss, longing, and youth over a foundation of intricate guitar work and creative percussion, drawing on influences ranging from Nick Drake to Deerhoof. Give In is set to be released this June.
Max Subar
Alt-Folk singer/songwriter Max Subar aims to remain bound to his midwestern roots with songwriting that radiates honesty and closeness. His debut EP 'In a Dream', released in April 2017, was described by The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel as possessing a 'pastoral glow and a Nick Drake softness.' Since the release he has garnered a local following in Chicago.
After acquiring a cassette machine in the middle of 2018, Max began demoing and recording a new group of songs. By the end of the year, they would come together to become "What The Story Says", an EP released this past Spring. Recorded primarily in his sunroom in Chicago, What The Story Says is a collection of songs reflecting on the personal narratives we tell ourselves. Supported with instrumentation by bandmates and close friends, the recordings serve as a communal exploration of this idea, just as much as that of the individual.
