Grand Canyon (retouched)
In 2015 Bear the Astronot settled on a crazy idea. 2 Months to create a massive project. Bear grew up in The Grand Canyon National Park and on the Navajo Reservation in Northern Arizona. He had always wanted to create a musical project dedicated to his unique childhood. He set out to create this project quickly. He wildly wrote and produced an eclectic dedication to his childhood and the Southwest. After 2 months he had 2 Chapters to the project he titled Grand Canyon.
35 Songs & Spoken Word pieces completely written, produced, recorded, mixed, and released. In 2 months time. This may have not been time to sonically perfect every song, but the imperfect feel was perfect for Bear the Astronot’s vision. Lots of these songs contain 1 take verses and hooks, and many were created from start to finish in chunks of songs all in the same day. Maybe one day he will remix and remaster the project, but for now Bear wants you to hear the creative process, the timeline, and the passion he put into developing such a massive undertaking and presenting it in it’s raw form. Thank you so much for listening, and experiencing Bear the Astronot’s Grand Canyon.
