SYML - INDEPENDENT VENUE WEEK 2023 (18+)

SATURDAY 4TH FEBRUARY · 7PM - 10PM · PHASE ONE · 18+

Brian Fennell plays an intimate gig in celebration of his second solo album as part of IVW 2023! 'The Day My Father Died' is out 3rd Feb

The solo venture of Seattle artist Brian Fennell, the album's themes tap into the instincts that drive us to places of sanctuary, whether that be a place or person. 'It comes back to your identity of being human; throughout time we've shared the same drive,' he explains. His own upbringing ' interwoven with experiences of abandonment, adoption, loss, grief and love' is what drives him to question how connections between people shape us as individuals.

The Day My Father Died is an exceptional record. Over 15 songs, SYML offers a profound exploration of the ways in which our lives intertwine. Throughout the album, SYML weaves in familiar iconography as a means of examining his feelings towards others, and about himself.
