This Will Be Over Soon is a song written, recorded, produced, mixed and mastered by Bryan Ernest, in his home-studio in Mumbai, with Hansel Dias covering the low ends with the bass.
A multi-instrumentalist experimenting with the sounds of 15+ instruments merged into a one-man-band set, Bryan is currently recording/producing a string of his single’s/EP to be released at regular intervals in the second half of 2020.
The new song was born out of the fact that hope can keep us alive and kicking for survival, especially in a time of a quarantined lockdown, he tells us, adding that the song was written with the intention of being a beacon of hope when people lose it.
The song tries to put out a positive message through lines like “We gotta be stronger, I know nothing can keep us down. We gotta be wiser because all we have left is now” - which also addresses the fact that how humans are harming the environment in the name of development. It subtly reminds the listener to start rethinking the only way of life that they know to evolve with everything around.
It is an elaborate arrangement of 119 tracks which include the violin, drums, synth, electric and acoustic guitars, bass (played by Hansel Dias) and multiple vocal choir arrangements. It took a total of 18 days to get this song to its completion from scratch.
This is Bryan’s second release apart from the one done by Nexa Music called Final Fight. His first release was on the subject of depression, called It’s Ok Not To Be Okay, which has over 13k hits on Spotify.
He’s been in the music scene in different avatars from the past nine years, played across 30 plus cities from venues ranging from Bluefrog’s and HRC’s to festivals like Celebrate Bandra, Lil Flea etc. He believes in creating a vibe that uplifts, engages and captivates his listeners to feel his songs rather than just hear them.
Bryan has helped co-found the community gathering and social experiences space startup, Motojojo, which is active all over India as of today. Bryan has since moved on to be a full-time musician.
Apart from being a speaker at the prestigious TEDx conference, Bryan has other projects called Stringy-Cheese and CrackerJack, both of which were selected as the Top 24 English Singer-Songwriters over 1500 entries, by the recent Nexa Music hunt curated by A.R Rahman.
