Over the course of his career, Brad Byrd has written songs that firmly occupy the rarely-explored middle ground between indie rock and alt-country. He's a genre-spanning musician, carving out a diverse sound fueled by melody, detailed storytelling, and the instincts of a journeyman songwriter who began making Americana music long before the genre had a name. With his fourth album, Phases, Byrd takes a look backwards, reflecting upon the lessons learned throughout his ongoing journey.

From the start, Byrd's music found himself planting one foot in the guitar-driven world of indie rock, with the other pointing toward a more rootsy, country-inspired direction. His voice suited both styles, and his hook-heavy songwriting drew a line between them. Inspired by modern trailblazers like Nada Surf, Wilco, Kurt Vile, and Ryan Adams, he blazed his own path, unafraid to chase the muse into unexplored territory.

Jake and Amy met at an open mic night in February 2016. They started playing together soon after, and have developed an unexpected sound that puts a contemporary spin on classic stylings.
Aside from juggling their nine to five jobs, the duo Lindee Cavalier keeps busy writing songs and satisfying a shared passion for contributing original music to the world.

Matt Super likes to play his guitar and sing some songs and hopes you like it too. He's trying to fail a little less each time.
