Ontario, Canada acoustic singer-songwriter SayWeCanFly has signed to Epitaph Records, joining such varied and esteemed acts as Bad Religion, Every Time I Die, Pennywise and Motion City Soundtrack.
In regards to the news, the man behind the project, Braden Barrie, shared:
“I've spent many years of my life building SayWeCanFly from the ground up, and have always believed in the power of faith and hard work. I've learned that the two most important aspects of being a musician are the songs I write, and the kids who listen to them. Becoming a part of the Epitaph family is something I feel in my heart is the right step for me to take. They have always stood out to me for many reasons, the most important being that their bands are consistently growing and succeeding, which I don't believe is possible without a loving and caring team behind the art. My priority will always be the music, and I'm thankful to have found a record label who understands why I do what I do.”
Epitaph CEO and Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz, followed up with:
“It's truly amazing what Braden has accomplished with SayWeCanFly, all on his own, in such a short time. His passion and commitment are really inspiring. I'm thrilled to welcome him and his wonderful team to the Epitaph family.”
