From the Shallows to the Deep

For more than a year, Michigan-based Singer/Songwriter Brian Koenigsknecht worked on writing and recording the songs for his new album, "From the Shallows to the Deep".

During a year of uncertainty with the affairs of the world, coming to terms with his own depression, and his father having a stroke, Brian considered giving up music all together.

With the support of his friends, family and some of Kalamazoo's finest musicians Brian will release his most intimate album of his career on May 2, 2017. The album's stories range from despair to joy, from ruination to redemption.The final chapter being the discovery that we each can be the light we seek, beginning with change within ourselves.
