On The Table Read Magazine, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, the debut album from German-based singer-songwriter M. Byrd, The Seed, is meant to plant a seed and encourage listeners’ evolution.
Byrd’s debut album, The Seed, is meant to plant a seed and encourage listeners’ evolution by expanding moments of stark intimacy to widescreen proportions bolstered by shoegaze scope.
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.
The German-based singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer, M. Byrd unearths universality from intensely personal songwriting.
In 2020, he garnered attention with his singles “Mountain” and “Morning Sun,” which gained millions of streams and praise from Ones to Watch, Earmilk, Atwood Magazineand many more. At the end of 2020, in Detmold, Germany in a WWII-era British Crops squash hall was recommissioned as a studio, M. Byrd holed up with producer Eugen Koop to create The Seed.
M. Byrd has left his mark on each level of the music, personally playing 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.
