M. Byrd - 'The Seed'

  • 2 min read

German-based singer-songwriter M. Byrd inspires evolution with his new album 'The Seed', available everywhere now.

M. Byrd’s debut album expands moments of stark intimacy to widescreen proportions bolstered by shoegaze scope, alternative fearlessness and pop palatability. The album is meant to plant a seed and encourage listeners’ evolution.

The German-based singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer elaborates, “To me, personally, it was sort of a process of healing that I thought would be worth sharing. Listening to the whole album reminded me of holding a seed in my hands. It felt like the start of something and symbolized birth in times of chaos. The album, we decided, had to be called nothing more and nothing less - The Seed. There’s a lot of space in between the notes. It’s a mixture of intimate moments and wide horizons. It’s inspired by the Laurel Canyon sound, but we have the big guitar and drums. The lyrics enrich the sonic experience with vivid imagery.”

M. Byrd unearths universality from intensely personal songwriting. In 2020, he turned heads with the single 'Mountain' followed by 'Morning Sun' gaining millions of streams and praise from Ones to Watch, Earmilk, Atwood Magazine and many more.

At the end of 2020, he holed up in Detmold, Germany in a WWII-era British Crops squash hall, rechristened as a studio with producer Eugen Koop to create The Seed. Leaving his mark on each level of the music, M. Byrd personally plays guitar, synthesizers and bass on the record. After generating 10 million-plus streams and acclaim from outlets worldwide, he continues to perfect his vision on The Seed. 

M. Byrd is hitting the road for a handful of European shows and festival appearances this summer and fall, For more information and to purchase tickets, visit M. Byrd’s website here.
