About The Album
On his debut album, Long For This World, Von Bieker employs vivid storytelling and atmospheric folk arrangements to take us on a 10-track journey to the places that have marked his life.
Tracks like Santa Fe, Coney Island and Places We Can't Live celebrate locales like the high desert, a Vancouver Gastown rooftop and the Coney Island Sideshow by the Seashore. Alberta Hospital draws on Von Bieker's own experiences with mental illness, faith healing and doubt. The album lands in a place of bewildered surrender on the final track, Wherever You Are.
This debut was self-recorded and mixed almost entirely at home in Edmonton by Von Bieker during the pandemic.
