THE GARDENER

bryony_bandcamp_alb.jpg

I dig up the ground, I pull out the weeds

I clear a path, I clear the way, I rake the grass of dead leaves.

Dead leaves form a pile, I lay them over the beds

Nourish the soil with all the world’s toil, history not written or read.

Written, arranged, performed, recorded, produced and released by Bryony, this album is an ode to her inner gardener and yours; the one who tends to dreams and hears the whispers of the heart. In a world full of background noise I invite you into the garden I have created through music and sound. I have uprooted my grief and turned it over to nourish the growth of my own inner magic and love. I am so excited to share this with you and really hope you enjoy whatever process it may spark inside you!

How To Pay: Choose Your Price!

I am offering the album as one whole piece of work, so the below prices are for the entire album (including interludes). I would like to make this music accessible to as many people as possible, so I have developed a payment system where you can choose the price which both reflects what you are receiving and takes your financial situation into consideration. The minimum price pays for the basic costs of creating the album (studio rent and equipment) but does not pay me for my time. If you are able to donate more this pays for my time to create the music too. The higher price categories help me to expand this project as a whole, including live performance/film projects and music videos. I trust you to give whatever feels right for you. 

If you require a download format other than MP3 please email me on bryonyperkinsmusic@protonmail.com.

A huge thank you to everyone at 54 Camberwell Green, to Ruth, Lidia, Sarah and Lidi, to friends on the 'Re-nurturing The Arts' Zoom call, and to my beautiful family. I have such good memories of being at the guardianship in Camberwell during the first lockdown in March 2020, where this album was created, and of pulling up actual weeds in the garden with Ruth and Lidia ;)
