The first meme is from The Beardly, the second one is from the Bearded Gospel Men, and that last one is Brian Haitz's groom cake.
As much as I love beard humor and Brian does have a great beard I am actually here to talk about his music. Brian's solo project, The Ancient Rift, has a new album and it's available now on iTunes.
His Facebook describes his music as "primarily acoustic guitar driven, with deep, heartfelt lyrics that muse over life, love, tragedy, and joy. It's the kind of music that speaks deeply and heals deeply" The tunes are soothing, honest, and uplifting. They also remind me some of one of my all time favorite artists Jon Foreman. The album was recorded at Iron Wings Studios with none other than Brandon Weaver (my brother) shown below playing the upright bass with Brian on drums.
The truth is Brian would probably still sound great with or without the beard, but I'm pretty sure that when you hear his music you will be thinking this sounds like a guy with a really fantastic beard. Go get the album and find out for yourself.
