Short Bio

The Metal Byrds is the brainchild of both Suzanne Birdie and Sly Rye Whisky. Both members were performing in other bands at the same time. On one lucky night thanks to a mutual friend, Suzanne sat in on guitarist Sly Rye's rehearsal with his band. He asked Suzanne to sing any song and she began singing Sweet Child O' Mine. They became fast friends that very night.

It wasn't long after that she actually joined his band and began performing with them.   However, as things go, the band was having line up issues and both Sly Rye and Suzanne decided they should create their own project together.  That is when The Metal Byrds were formed.


Working on songs in the months after paved the way for The Song Byrd EP, and later their second acclaimed EP, Byrds On A Wyre, which earned them a consideration for Best New Artist for the upcoming 63rd Annual Grammy Awards.  Every song is a testament to where they are at with their sound right now. 

Their third EP, Life In 20, which has even further refined their sound and writing ability, was a triumphant success in the world of Indie Rock.  Singles such as Dreamin and Tell Me, gave the band more notoriety on the world music platform, with offers from record labels like Curtain Call Records (US) and Bad Monkey Records (UK) 

After the band just released their fourth studio album. Simply titled "4",  the band has been shocked and happy that five of the eight songs have gone to number 1 on several Indie Music Radio charts, with expectations of more chart topping singles from the record.

Next came "Birdie Lane", the 5th full length album.  It was a bit of a departure from the straight up rock and roll that fans have grown to love about The Metal Byrds.  With their sound and production getting better, along with better writing, The Metal Byrds gained more popularity and a greater fan base with their diversity.

Currently just released, their 6th album, Moments Before Sunrise, has been a deeper dive into the grunge roots of the band. This EP has been getting alot of attention on indie and FM radio, with PR exploding from all across the globe.
