If there’s one thing I admire in others, it’s commitment to following their dreams. I love to watch people I know doing amazing things, and some of the most inspiring people I know are my friends Marianna Theielen and Reece Marshburn, who together lead The Bylines, a soulful retro pop group. They’ve been following their dreams of making music for a couple of years now, and it’s been a thrill to watch them find success.
Now, their second album is out (I got my copy last week!) and it’s great. I wanted to share some photos I took of them recently (one of which appears in the album). I think you’ll love their music and their passion just as much as I do.
The Bylines are having a CD release party on March 16 at the Alberta Rose Theatre — I’d encourage you to come out and see them (we’ll be there!), or get your hands on a copy of the new album. It’s really great.
The Bylines’ regular appearances around the Portland area are listed on their site.
