On May 27th, Rewind Records will be hosting a Grand Opening event at their new space (Suite 105, next to The Briar and the Burley) in the Fountain Square Mall, Downtown Bloomington to celebrate their new location and the release of Jyra’s new record, “Castle in the Air.”
Jyra is an experimental singer-songwriter and BMI Community song of the month winner, known for his unique blend of traditional and experimental musical elements. Jyra’s music has been featured in independent films and on radio stations. New York Times Best Selling Author Michael Koryta praised Jyra’s work, stating, “Every track was quality work and held to the themes of the story… You’ve got a real gift for transferring emotion to music, and vice versa.”
His highly anticipated fifth album, “Castle in the Air,” is set to release on May 27th, featuring 15 tracks that showcase his distinctive style and songwriting. The album is printed on vinyl and features a string quartet. It draws inspiration from 1960s rock music and Bach. Jyra collaborated with Chris Brown, a former Senior Engineer at Abbey Road Studios who has worked with Muse, Radiohead, and on The Beatles Anthologies, to mix some of the tracks on this album. In addition to Brown, Jyra worked with numerous other talented artists from around the world to shape the sound of “Castle in the Air.” Available on May 27th.
A Bloomington native carrying on the town’s tradition of brilliant songwriters, Jyra’s 4th studio album features “Sweet Carolina (Love Me Too)” mixed in London by Chris Brown (Radiohead’s The Bends and OK Computer, The Beatles: Anthology 1) and “Good Company” (#1 on Indy chart from Reverbnation.com). Castle in the Air will be available on vinyl and CD in all record stores in Bloomington, IN on May 27th
