Portland's Bylines Duo write and perform sophisticated, jazz-inspired, story-driven pop music.
Their influences range from that of classics like Cole Porter to modern artists like Randy Newman, Regina Spektor and Sara Barielles. This creates a sound that is both grounded in the big-band past of glamorous pop performances and rooted in the present realm of intricate and highly addictive songwriting.
With a focus on grand live spectacle, a facet of music often lost in the digital age, the duo
is equally at home in large, velvet-curtained jazz halls and intimate venues.
