M. Byrd Releases Debut EP “Orion”: Streaming
- German singer-songwriter and guitarist M. Byrd released his debut EP “Orion” along with a new music video for the title track on August 27, 2021.
The EP comprises of 4-track, including preceding two singles “Mountain” and “Morning Sun”.
The accompanying music video was directed by Constantin Timm.
“I spent many years soaking up personal and musical experiences and I’ve been learning a lot in different studios and touring situations,” M. Byrd explained. “The music I make is thus inspired by being on the road, moving on and allowing growth to happen. I realized that the experiences on my path might also inspire other people and I hope that this will continue in the future with the songs we release.”
This summer he plays at tastemaker festivals like Immergut, in September at the Reeperbahn Festival and next year he will support indie dance king Roosevelt on his full European tour.
M. Byrd explained track-by-track for the EP.
“I visited the highest mountain of Denmark called Himmelsbjerget, which roughly translates to Sky Mountain or Mountain of Heaven. I thought it was quite a name for a mountain that is only 147m high, but when you climb on top of it, it feels so high, you can almost see the ocean. So 'Mountain' became this idea of a song that puts things into perspective - if even the seemingly smallest hill can be a mountain, what good things are actually surrounding me right now? I spent many years soaking up personal and musical experiences and I've been learning a lot in different studios and touring situations. The music I make is thus inspired by being on the road, moving on and allowing growth to happen. I realized that the experiences on my path might also inspire other people and I hoped that will transcend in the songs we are releasing.”
“Morning Sun has become a kind of morning mantra for me. The idea came to me a few years ago in the morning right after I got up and it came back to me subsequently over and over again, like a kind of entry into meditation, until I finally recorded it and arranged it into form.”
“This is Orion, a song about a little friend that left us revealing who he truly was only after he was gone.”
