A lifelong battle with depression, anxiety and insomnia led songwriter, Bryan Kuhn, to a life of music. Through years of struggles, Kuhn learned to channel the negatives into positives. An intricate lyricist, he builds soundscapes that form the canvas on which he lays his thoughts bare. On a backdrop of guitars, strings and synths, Kuhn explores his mind to make sense of the world around him. Kuhn has recorded almost therapeutically on a daily basis for more than a decade.
