Cyrill Reiser inspires with debut EP ‘Soul’s On Fire’

Cyrill Reiser was born in Zurich, Switzerland and is now based in Seattle USA. However, his new and debut EP ‘Soul’s On Fire’ was written while he spent time on the road, living a nomadic lifestyle for three and a half years. This allowed him to open himself up to new cultures, developing as both a person and as a musician.

The culmination of this is a five-track project full of adventure and inspiration. Tracks range from empowerment, rebelliousness, ballads and joyousness. The title track, ‘Soul’s On Fire’ is dignified and inspirational, pairing confident and dark guitar lines with a cheeky and excitable attitude. The instrumentation across the project is often simple in it’s individual, guitars, pianos, drums and vocals, but each grows to be more expansive than the sum of its parts. You are motivated to get out and experience the world, whilst also put in a place to reflect on your own feelings and life experience.

On the track he says, “I wrote 'Soul's On Fire' during a time when I had hit rock bottom and was feeling utterly dejected. However, in that moment of despair, I had an epiphany: I had nothing to lose and everything to gain by mustering the courage to risk really living again. The song is a powerful testament to the transformative power of that process, and how it can light a fire within one's soul.”
