Album Notes
With an acclaimed history as the front-man and creative force behind the band Floater, Robert Wynia's work has been called "the nearest American thing to perfection" and "hard to define, yet easy to listen to again and again." His second full length solo album, titled Brave the Strange, explores change, loss, and new beginnings, all with a luscious backdrop of warm strings, vintage keyboards, and rich, melodious vocals. Featuring some of the Pacific Northwest's best and most loved musicians, Brave the Strange delivers a unique and cinematic musical landscape. Songs ranging from roadhouse blues-style Americana to hypnotic ambient soundscapes to classic album rock flow seamlessly together and leave the listener wanting more.

Brave the Strange features some of the best musicians in the West, including Erin Adkisson (The Druthers), David Amador (Floater), Paul Brainard (Oregon Music Hall of Fame inductee), Rich Landar (Richmond Fontaine), Mark Powers (She & Him), Daniel Riddle (King Black Acid), and Skip VonKuske (Portland Cello Project). It explores new sonic territory for Wynia with lush, cinematic arrangements and slow-burning intensity that draws the listener gently into the musical landscape it creates.

Robert Wynia is based in Portland, Oregon, producing and performing acclaimed rock and pop music, and has influenced the Northwest music scene for over 20 years. Brave the Strange was recorded at Wynia's own Curiouser studios, and Mazinga Studios in Portland and will be released on Cavity Search Records (Elliott Smith, Hazel, Heatmiser, and The Helio Sequence).
