Focusing on the things that matter are how Brian Fennell writes and records under his alias SYML. Simplicity is what moves SYML – pronounced “simmel”, it means “simple” in Welsh. Adopted and not knowing his history or connection to his Welsh roots until the age of 18, Fennell creates music from his basement home studio in Issaquah, 20 miles to the east of Seattle. The sounds he can conjure alone, just him, his piano, keyboards, guitars and laptop. The primal feelings he conveys with pin-point-and-personal lyrics, effortless melodies and a pure, emotive vocal. Even the clarity of having little money and, therefore, fewer options. SYML has released 2 EPs, which include the singles “Clean Eyes” and Where’s My Love”. His debut album is due to release in 2019.
