Renaissance Human is a movement to celebrate creativity in a world starving for it.
Our movement is born out of the life experience of founder Bruce Cryer, and millions of others throughout history who have bucked the trends and gone against tradition to live a life as fully creative and alive as possible. In 2011, as a harrowing two year period of health and personal challenges was finally settling down and Bruce could see light at the end of the tunnel, he realized he needed to sing again. That impulse led him back to his old friend from college days, renowned composer and producer, Gary Malkin. Soon, they birthed the What Makes Your Heart Sing project – a “keynote performance” designed to awaken inspiration that had become dormant in people and organizations. Bruce and Gary got audiences singing and remembering what makes their heart sing!
In 2017 an invitation from the amazing Brothers Koren – Isaac and Thorald – to co-create an EP of songs Bruce would write became an offer he couldn’t refuse. But rather than just record some songs and put it out there to a world potentially saying, “huh?”, Bruce realized this was an opportunity to build a movement around an idea that has inspired his imagination and the way he lives his life: becoming a Renaissance Human.
The project launches July 20, 2017 with an Indiegogo campaign to build support and funding for the album of Bruce’s original songs — created with the expert talented guidance of singer-songwriters Isaac and Thorald Koren (supported by Emmy-award winning composer and musical alchemist, Gary Malkin) – along with a documentary film directed by Fabian Aguirre and Maya Pisciotto of The Understory celebrating rebirth and creativity, along with launch events being held in cities around the US. The album, documentary and launch events will all happen starting October 2017.
Also in development – because of Bruce’s extensive experience in organizational, leadership, and transformational training — are online and live workshops as well as speaking/performing engagements, along with a robust community web portal to the world of Creativity.
Creativity is in need of love today. We’ve got the love to give.
