After Party: Byland

Byland is the moniker and last name of Seattle-based, Albuquerque raised, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Alie Renee.

Alie’s cinematic, indie-rock sound is tethered by timeless songwriting and attentive production. Her music is grounded by vocally vulnerable moments that will move you to lean in. Her latest studio record, “Gray”, is “a little weird” and breathes into intriguing and often offbeat arrangements.

After releasing “Gray” in late 2020, Byland received recognition from outlets like KEXP, American Songwriter, and Pop Matters, among others. The record was co-written with her partner, Jacob John, and produced by Nathan Yaccino, along with additional mixing by Andy Park. Notable contributors alongside Alie include a lineup of powerful females – Jessica Dobson (Deep Sea Diver), Meagan Grandall (Lemolo), and Abby Gundersen.

After having spent two years in Albuquerque, Alie moved back to Seattle in early 2022. She, along with her four-piece band of seasoned musicians toured from Texas to Seattle in September 2023 in support of her latest single, “Monstera”. She is currently releasing singles and ramping up to her forthcoming, anticipated second full-length LP, set to release in the first half of 2024 with Mother West Records.

“The passion for performing was palpable. Byland manages to prove you can have both emotionally vulnerable lyrics that sneak up on you like a gut punch and a lively performance that is brimming with fun. The beautiful blend is only enhanced by Alie Renee’s amazing vocal range, which is even better live than on the album.”
