Formed in Delaware in 2020, Brig Aurora began as a joint songwriting venture between Jameson May (vocals, guitar, piano) and Ryan Mikles (vocals, keys, acoustic guitar). Recorded and produced in Ryan's bedroom, their debut EP Cerebral Pendulum was released in March 2021, a somber 4 song journey inspired by experiences of falling in love, growing up, and feeling lost. During the making of the EP, friend and frequent collaborator Chris Roethel (guitar, bass, vocals) contributed additional instrumentation, thus integrating him as a member of the group.
The trio began developing ideas for a full length LP and realized a drummer would be needed to achieve the bigger live sound they envisioned. Kody Diduch (drums, synth) joined the group and their 10 song self-titled debut album was recorded during July 2021 in the living room of their Bear, DE home. The psychedelic folk rock epic was released February 2022 to critical acclaim.
