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 work with Sufjan Stevens, Bryce Desner) who, impressed by his demos, agreed to produce and perform drums. The project explores personal themes of loss, longing, isolation, and depression over a foundation of intricate guitar work and creative percussion, drawing on influences ranging from Nick Drake to Deerhoof. The five track project is set to be released this June.


Music from Chicago by Bill Perkins and friends.
