John Bijarney’s LABRADOR SUNSET album is a revealing introspection into a man and his music. Drawing upon a rich tradition of folk music and a glimpse into the future, John’s songwriting illustrates a deep and intimate connection between both songwriter and life’s perpetual subject. Weaving a musical artery into the imagination, John’s music invites for conversation and contemplation in quiet moments to perpend. All that is needed from songwriter to listener is to “tip the scales with some of your ‘yes.’”
