Our March song is the first song we've written about a piece of clothing.....:)
This February, The Bylines spent their 2015 Valentines Day playing back to back nights on The Portland Spirit. Their second song of the month for this year answers the musical question, "What is love?"
We are happy to post our first Song of the Month for 2015! We wrote this about the mixed up, beautiful feeling you get when you fall in love. Enjoy!
At our CD release show, we promised to bring back our Songs of the Month! We debuted this song that night and thought we'd post a video taken by a fan.
Yes, a year as gone by and we have our final song of 2013! A song about the time between midnight on New Year's Eve and the next morning.....Happy New Year! Enjoy!
A partially true story about our alternative Thanksgiving. *Disclaimer: Not entirely based on real live events!*
Our song this month is curvy and a little country.....enjoy!
The name says it all! Enjoy!
Our video for August, inspired by classic Hollywood romance....enjoy!
This month, we feature Reece in a tune we're releasing as the first in a song cycle entitled Songs of Precocious Youth. Enjoy!
Our song for June is a fictionalized account of how Reece and Mar write songs. (Hair pulling and name calling edited out for your safety.)
Our song this May is inspired by the temptation nostalgia brings.....enjoy!
We've had an idea to write a song about bike riding for years. Inspired by Queen's Bicycle Race and by the wonderful culture of biking in Portland, we came up with this. Enjoy, and don't forget to watch the safety announcement at the end! Happy Riding!
This song was inspired by a church letterboard. We knew this song needed some drums and extra harmony so we had back-up singer Angela Baldino Thomas and drummer Sam Foulger come in to record the video. Enjoy!
Keeping with our 2013 goal to focus on our songwriting, we've written and recorded a live version of our latest song, Let Me. We hope it inspires some fun evenings for you....
After a very busy 2012 with the release of our debut album, we've set out to make 2013 a year to focus on our songwriting. As we write, we'll be releasing a series of simple, intimate videos to you straight from our living room. The first video we bring to you is a song we started writing while we were in New York City last fall. Ideas about where we should/need to be were floating around our heads as was the idea of "home" and what that truly means... we hope you enjoy!
