Brian & The SHIYR Poets continue their grand journey into the heart of the Psalms. Taken as a whole, the Psalms are perhaps the most emotionally healthy comprehensive expression of spirituality ever written. Volume Three (Psalms 21-30) contains some of the most epic and loved Psalms. Interpreted with powerful fresh music, these Psalms reverberate with the human cry for help while holding on to hope in a God who cares and comforts all who turn to Him.
The SHIYR Poets (pronounced “Sheer”) are Brian Doerksen, Calum Rees, Brian Thiessen and Teresa Trask. They aim to render each psalm in its entirety, singing songs of desperation, desire, justice and praise.

This EP is a collection of cover songs that we love, including the classics “Here Comes The Sun” and “Wondering Where The Lions Are,” along with Bob Dylan’s “To Make You Feel My Love.” We’ve also included our arrangements of “Sad Songs (Say So Much),” “You Got The Love,” and the late 70s contemplative “Dust In The Wind.”
