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 renowned producer Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, Vance Joy, Father John Misty) at the infamous Studio X in their mutual hometown of Seattle. The album features collaborations with artists like Guy Garvey (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” – was born and raised in Seattle. In 2021 he embarked on an extensive sold-out headline tour performing in beautiful churches around the world, and he comes to our music sanctuary to support the release of The Day My Father Died.
Opening the show is Nashville-based singer/songwriter Trent Dabbs who puts a pop-friendly spin on pastoral folk and rock ditties. Influenced by Johnny Cash, Neil Young, Big Star, the Beatles, and Nick Drake.
