Toledo native, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, instrument inventor, multi-medium artist, and environmental activist, Bryan Drewyor has done what most musicians only dare dream about. He’s biked across the country performing his his substantial catalog of soulful songs of spirit, love, and peace at venues along way.
His mission is to help heal our wounded, over-burdened Mother Earth by inspiring each of us to begin our own healing process. He does this one day at a time. One gig at a time. One song at a time.
I ran into him recently while he was performing outside of the Willy Street Coop on Williamson street here in Madison, WI. I will tell you this: The moment I heard his voice, I stopped everything I was doing to listen. He was armed with nothing more than a small 3/4 travel size acoustic guitar and a small plastic trash can—which he sat on while thumping against it with a bass-drum kick-pedal to keep rhythm. His voice was soulful and strong, with no need for amplification of any kind. The sound was utterly captivating.
“Make Me A Garden is a journey into the subconscious of the human mind and our mindful earths’ conscious intellect. It is a request of Spirit to transform the wounded land of our being into a garden of mystical and harmonious existence. It is a mantra. It is a calling out to the cosmos. It’s a calling out to the inner micro-cosmic universe within us all.”
On that particular day, in that very moment, he was performing his latest single, Make Me A Garden (a song which will appear on his forthcoming album by the same name). Without knowing a thing about Brian, his mission, or this song, I knew immediately what his intentions were.
It’s rare to be touched deeply by anything these days, don’t you think? Give yourself a moment for that now, and listen to Bryan below…
“I hear song in your love
I hear melodies and rhythm
I feel wind in your trees
Always bending, holding my leaves
I see fire in your eyes
I see the longing while all the flames fly
I build with stone upon my earth
I am completing all of my life’s work
So won’t you take this wounded land
Make me a garden, mix silt, clay, and sand
Won’t you spread these heirloom seeds
Water often all of my roots you’ll feed
I’m cleansin’ my fears inside of the rain
I am washing away my past pain
I’m growing seeds from the burned ash
I am sprouting from all the burned grass
I store light inside of my cells
I am collecting in all of my sun wells
I fall to earth am renewed
Becoming dust again, I’m one with you”
A Midwestern version of JJ Gray.
