A Bruise On Light is a new collection of poetry from internationally acclaimed artist Shane Koyczan. This collection of poetry includes the poem “Shoulders” which Shane brought to stages across Canada for David Suzuki’s Blue Dot Tour.
“A Bruise On Light is a collection that’s come out of my last two years of touring. I’ve enjoyed some enormous success recently, but depression has loomed over certain milestones. It’s been a challenge to feel happy about my achievements while dark clouds appear constantly on the horizon. Nevertheless, writing has been a source of great comfort, and helps me to occasionally pan small pieces of gold from these streams of consciousness. A Bruise On Light is a collection of stone and gold… impurity and shine.”
Recorded with Cayne McKenzie (We Are The City) and Hannah Epperson and mixed by Aidan Knight, Silence Is A Song I Know All The Words To is another chapter in the continuing story of Shane Koyczan. It is available now along with the companion piece graphic novel of the same name. Album track “Troll” is accompanied by a video that features the artwork of Gareth Gaudin who also illustrated the graphic novel. “Troll” is dedicated to all of those who have lost friends or family through online abuse.
