Bryan Deister is one of the more versatile singer-songwriters currently attending the acclaimed Berklee College of Music for writing and composition, but he just released a double album, Spines of the Heart, after just two years of his professional education. This 90-minute collection of songs is a bold step for a young performer, though each lyric, instrument and note is as important as the next, showing us that his education goes far beyond the coveted school. Listen to a stream of this 22-song record below!

Even though he's a sophomore in college, Deister's musical style and influences are beyond his years. Aside from composing all of the tunes and writing the lyrics for every bit of music, Bryan produces and performed every aspect of this 90-minute double-disc album. Iconic studio engineer and producer Bernie Grundman mastered Bryan's new record.

Bryan lists his influences as early '90s grundge, experimental and pop musicians like Nirvana, Weezer, My Bloody Valentine and more, though he's also trained in classical, blues, and jazz. Again, he's very versatile!

While it's refreshing to hear about a young artist mentioning influences that would have been around while he was an infant, his music clearly pulls from these musicians. You can hear the angst and anger of grundge, the lamenting of alternative pop music and the orchestrations of classical throughout the 22-song album, but Bryan brings them all together for 90 minutes of great listening.
