St. Augustine, FL - Local Musician Collaborates with Local Poet Chris Bodor and Eleven National Poets
“I’m thrilled to announce that our re:covery album will be released Monday, May 9th.” said St. Augustine musician Ryan Bozeman. Recording under the name “brotherwell”, Ryan Bozeman reached out to Chris Bodor from 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 thirteen spirited and invigorating tracks.
You’ll be able to purchase it on iTunes and Bandcamp, and you’ll be able to stream it on Spotify, Amazon Music, and a million other places.
“We are not taking a penny here.” said Ryan. “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.” explains Neil Hutchinson, Founding Trustee and Tiny Changes CEO. Scott Hutchinson was the founding member and primary songwriter of the indie rock band Frightened Rabbit. The musician disappeared on May 09, 2018, and his body was found the following day in a Scottish riverbank.
