SYML is the solo venture of artist Brian Fennell. His forthcoming record, The Day My Father Died, due out February 3, 2023, was recorded by producer Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, Vance Joy, Father John Misty) at the legendary Studio X in their mutual hometown of Seattle. The album features collaborations with Guy Garvey (of Elbow), Lucius, Sara Watkins, Charlotte Lawrence, and is a document of growth and healing, charting Fennell’s journey forward after a fundamental shift in his life.
With over one billion lifetime streams, SYML—Welsh for “simple”—makes music that taps into the instincts that drive us to places of sanctuary, whether that be a place or a person. Born and raised in Seattle, Fennell studied piano and became a self-taught producer, programmer, and guitarist. He released his self-titled debut album in 2019, which includes the platinum-selling song “Where’s My Love,” and the Gold Record fan favorite, “Girl”. In 2021,SYML released an EP DIM, produced by Paul Meany which landed appearances on Late Night with Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel alongside a live album Sacred Spaces, which was followed by an extensive sold-out headline tour, performing in beautiful churches around the world.
