On his full-length debut Javelina, singer/songwriter/guitarist Braison Cyrus shares a selection of exquisitely crafted stories, telling tales of haunted souls and lovesick dreamers and hard-living characters pushed to the brink. Rooted in the nuanced lyricism that led American Songwriter to hail him as “a storyteller of epic proportions,” the album unfolds in a timeless alt-country sound informed by such eclectic touchstones as Levon Helm and spaghetti-western composer Ennio Morricone. Whether he’s spinning a tragic romance or a joyful reverie, Cyrus imbues each song with his warmly captivating vocals and the kind of indelible melodies that immediately make their way into your heart.

Growing up in Nashville, Cyrus first started making music on his own as a teenager, and soon began mining inspiration from the deeply introspective songwriting of artists like Conor Oberst and My Morning Jacket’s Jim James. After spending some time in Los Angeles, he returned to his hometown and had a major creative breakthrough with a piece he’d written solely for the sake of catharsis. “I’d gone through a breakup and sat down at my little electronic keyboard and very quickly wrote a song, then recorded it as a voice memo on my phone,” says Cyrus. “I sent it to my brother and sister and asked if they liked it, and they both texted me back right away like, ‘Whoa, did you write that?’” Within a week, Cyrus had penned his debut single “I’ll Never Leave You,” a sweetly cascading folk track that premiered to much acclaim in late 2018. As he began assembling the batch of songs that would eventually comprise Javelina, he further developed his lyrical voice by bringing an extraordinary attention to detail to each composition. “Once I get started on a song, I’ll write ten or so verses and then whittle it down to the best of what I’ve come up with,” Cyrus notes. 

In creating Javelina, Cyrus matched that precision with the pure spontaneity that fuels his collaboration with his bandmates. “In a way making this album was like watching these songs grow up, and a lot of that has to do with my band keeping me focused but also relaxed and in good spirits,” he says. “We’d usually get started very late in the day and work till about four the next morning, and whenever we weren’t recording we’d head out to the cobblestone driveway in front of the Castle and just hang out together. All the good energy from outside carried over into the studio, and I think you can really feel that in all these songs.”

    "Cyrus’ music forward songwriting approach allows room for listener interpretation within the mournful melodies. But his artistry expands beyond the bounds of the sorrow-tinged singer-songwriter suite."

    On his full-length debut Javelina, singer/songwriter/guitarist Braison Cyrus shares a selection of exquisitely crafted stories, telling tales of haunted souls and lovesick dreamers and hard-living characters pushed to the brink. Rooted in the nuanced lyricism that led American Songwriter to hail him as “a storyteller of epic proportions,” the album unfolds in a timeless alt-country sound informed by such eclectic touchstones as Levon Helm and spaghetti-western composer Ennio Morricone. Whether he’s spinning a tragic romance or a joyful reverie, Cyrus imbues each song with his warmly captivating vocals and the kind of indelible melodies that immediately make their way into your heart.

     

    Produced by Austin Jenkins (Leon Bridges, Kacey Musgraves, Orville Peck) and Jordan Reed (Johnny Swim, The Western Sons, Roots of a Rebellion) features appearances from country legend Steve Earle and Ben Cramer of Old Sea Brigade, Javelina came to life at the iconic Castle Recording Studios in Franklin, Tennessee. In shaping the album’s intricate arrangements, Cyrus worked closely with his bandmates Blair Winters (on drums) and Grant Winters (on bass), introducing such elements as strings and pedal steel and Hammond B3 organ while preserving the raw authenticity of his demos. “To me, it’s really important to let my band have a lot of creative control,” says Cyrus. “I wanted everyone to go in and do their own thing, and bring their own vision to everything we created.”

     

    Braison debuted with his first single, “I’ll Never Leave You” in 2018, and toured theaters across the country. In August 2020, Braison uploaded a previously unreleased b-side that showcased a lilting falsetto and warbling soundscape – as Billboard noted, “the sprawling, slightly spacey ‘Glass Between Us’ showcases Cyrus’ range.” The release of his second official single, “Heart Is Gold” in September, was followed by a haunting rendition of Woody Guthrie’s “This Land Is Your Land,” for the Patagonia documentary, Public Trust: The Fight For America’s Public Lands.

     

    Braison has performed on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and the first-time dad will release his debut full-length on October 22.
