Lyle is a Seattle-based art-rock band. It began as a collaboration between singer-songwriters Lana McMullen and Arthur James in the spring of 2017. The two wanted to build a project without a frontperson—a collaborative where everyone involved contributes equally, artistically. They added five additional musicians from a myriad of musical backgrounds including metal, jazz-fusion, soul/r&b, and classical.
In the spring of 2018, Lyle ventured into Seattle's historic London Bridge Studio and recorded a five-song EP with producer Eric Lilavois (Atlas Genius, My Chemical Romance, Saint Motel) and engineer Julian Anderson. Their single, "Get Me," was mastered by Ed Brooks (Pearl Jam, Death Cab for Cutie, R.E.M.) and was released on October 12, 2018. Their follow-up single, “Believe in the Dark,” was released on January 17, 2019.
