Burt Byler & the Bearded Souls is a new “Rock Americana” music voyage by New Orleans-born and Mississippi-raised storyteller Josh Brister. Brister’s early years as a songwriter can be described as a carefree folk singer whose work spoke about the trouble-free life of the “South,” epitomized by his home-state Mississippi. When he hit his 30s, something felt different.

It was after watching the series “Making a Murderer” that something seemed to erupt inside of his soul. Anger of corruption and injustice welled up like it never had before and those feelings were the beginnings of Burt Byler. He felt the urge to write about issues that were happening all around us that he had hid from his entire life.

Now Brister finds himself writing songs, like “Castle of Corruption,” a protest song that tackles slavery in the modern world and “Glory Land” which deals with the American dream. Josh is confident that his newest endeavor, Burt Byler, will reveal a musical depth that only comes with age and experience.

Burt Byler es el nuevo viaje de música "americana" de Josh Brister, nacido y criado en Nueva Orleans y Misisipi. Acaba de grabar su EP con Brian Hunt. “Creo que es una mezcla rara y guay de folk y grunge,” dice Hunt.

Josh dice que sus nuevas canciones son "menos alegres y más críticas". Su trabajo anterior hablaba de la vida libre de problemas y relajada del Sur, personificada en su estado natal de Misisipi. Ahora con 31 años, Josh (Burt) se encuentra componiendo canciones como “Castle of Corruption,” una canción de protesta que habla de la esclavitud en el mundo moderno.

Josh confía en que su nuevo proyecto, Burt Byler & the Bearded Souls, revele una profundidad musical que sólo viene con edad y experiencia. Su primer sencillo “Slave Dog", ha sido grabado con Brian Hunt en El Invernadero, Madrid.
