Robert Wynia for an intimate evening of solo music and conversation in Father
Luke's Room at McMenamin's Old Saint Francis School in Bend, Oregon.
Wynia is a native son of the Western US. Born in Oregon, he has been performing
and writing all his life. He has been voted Best Male Performer, Best New
Artist, and Performer of the Year in Eugene and Portland, been inducted into
the Oregon Music Hall of Fame, and has received two preliminary Grammy
nominations for his work with his band "Floater." He has appeared in
numerous radio, television and web-based shows and has traveled extensively on
his debut solo release "Iron by Water," Wynia created an atmosphere
of open plains, shadowed woods and remote towns, and filled those landscapes
with hook-laden melodies of obsession, love and hope for redemption. "Iron
by Water" weaves a tapestry in rhythms and film-score style music, with
enough pop sensibility to keep the listener wanting more. The fusion of
alt-country, pop, blues and rock is hard to pigeon-hole, but easy to lose
yourself in from the first listen.
newest release, "Brave the Strange" is a lush, cinematic musical
journey through songs of lost love, addiction, and the struggle to find your
way. It represents the bold collaboration of Wynia as producer with co-producer
Daniel Riddle (King Black Acid), who brings his illustrious career with movie soundtrack
production to the album's sonic palette. Recruiting the talents of some of the
Northwest's best known and most talented musicians, "Brave the
Strange" features a rich array of organic instruments and layers of sound
that pull the listener in. The deeply personal and heartfelt vocals move
effortlessly from sparse guitar and voice passages to grand orchestral tidal
waves of sound, all the while drawing you further and further in. The drums and
electric guitar often times sitting back and simply providing a comfortable
canvas for the voice and other gathered instruments to paint.
Wynia currently resides in Portland, Oregon, where he is a musician, producer,
and performer in numerous projects.
