Bryn Loosley is a teacher and a songwriter in Santa Cruz, California. His 2008 debut, The Wrecker, was hailed by the Santa Cruz Sentinel as "a quiet stunner of an album that puts him, artistically, in the league of such better known singer/songwriters as Josh Ritter and Freedy Johnston." His second album, Blood Year, contains 12 songs, one inspired by each month of the year.

AUGUST - "Summer Job"

We're knee deep into recording the "Blood Year" songs presented here. Here's an early version of the recording of the song for August, called "Summer Job.

July - "Summertime Girl"

This lighthearted, funky little song could have easily served for any month of the summer, but it feels like July to me. August carries the weight of anticipation of the end of summer, and June is about change. July is a frivolous month. To me, July is barefoot, it's BBQs, fireworks, swimming in the river, and cans of beer from a cooler. July is perfect.
