Julie Byrne Joins Mute Song

May 5, 2017

Mute Song is delighted to announce the signing of the songwriter and singer Julie Byrne.

Julie Byrne is an American wanderer who creates delicate and haunting folk music. Her debut album, 2014’s ‘Rooms With Walls And Windows’, drew attention and praise for its masterful song writing and quiet craft. Her second album, 2017’s ‘Not Even Happiness’ confidently builds on this, adding atmospheric instrumentation and electronic flourishes to her songs and using unusual guitar tunings and fingerpicked melodies, moving the songs from the front-porch into subtle anthemia. Her music vividly archives what would have otherwise been lost to the road – bustling roadside diners, the stars over the high desert, the aching weariness of change, the wildflowers of the California coast, as well as the irresolvable mysteries of love.
