Brycen R. R. Couture
Brycen R. R. Couture is an 18 year old unschooler who is the lead vocalist and songwriter of his Metalcore band, Serenade II Darkness.
The driving force behind Brycen's music is raising awareness to the horrors of child abuse and championing children's rights and social justice. Brycen was adopted by his loving family at age 11 from the foster care system. He lived in a total of ten different homes and programs prior to finding his "forever family".
Despite all of the trauma he suffered in his first 11 years of life and the challenges of Asperger's Syndrome, he practices and promotes compassionate, democratic communication and nonviolence. What Brycen asks of the world, he practices and has truly experienced first hand- That love, compassion and having one's needs met, heals all wounds.
At age 12 Brycen delivered his first public speech at a large professional conference, calling for an end to abuses of children which are still legal in the USA. He has since spoken at three other homeschooling conferences, has sat on teen unschooling panels and was filmed for the upcoming documentary Class Dismissed.
Brycen performs with Serenade II Darkness and released his first demo EP in 2011. He runs a small business making Medieval chainmaille crafts. He ran another small business making plush crafts from ages 12-15. Brycen also loves rock climbing, Dungeons and Dragons, LARPing, bicycling, reading, outdoor activities, nature and inventing dice role playing games.
