"We are SERYN from Denton, Texas! We're looking forward to our show at WorkPlay Theatre on Friday, November 22nd and would love to see some of your faces. Since we last played at WorkPlay, we have been hard at work recording material for our next album and can't wait to play the new songs for all of you! Birmingham has always been such a great town for us and has become one of our favorite places to play, so we can't wait to see all of you there!"

SERYN is a 6 piece band who calls Denton, Texas their home. When listening to the well layered textures of guitars, ukulele, accordion, bass, viola, banjo and various percussion, it's hard to imagine that this is a relatively new band and not seasoned
The band's strength resides in their vast musical talent and understanding of dynamics. Their beauty is gracefully displayed through chilling harmonies. Each member and their voice carry the same importance. One is not complete without the other. It is in this craft that the young band shines so bright. It has earned them a sound that isn't easily defined, but still proven triumphant. What may first appear as straight folk songs, later transcend into menacing walls of sound. Growing audiences as well as national press have begun to take note, with Billboard Magazine featuring them in its “Scouting Report”, NPR’s All Songs Considered featuring as one of their “Bands That Should Be Bigger”, and Paste Magazine recognizing the as one of the “Best New Bands of 2011” and their song “We Will All Be Changed” from their debut album as one of their “Best of 2011”.
SERYN is currently finishing work on its new album, a followup to its critically lauded This Is Where We Are (2011), scheduled for release in 2014. ----- “Seryn’s live presence—with each member swapping instruments and all five singing choruses at the top of their lung—can best be described as ‘joyful’...” – Paste Magazine – Best New Bands of 2011 "Beautiful arrangements (both in instrumentation and in vocal harmonies) and an epic, "big sky" sound that, at times, seems more fitting washing over dilapidated wooden pews in an old church than the usual torn-up couches, vinyl booths and barstools of area venues." - Dallas Observer "Watching Seryn perform, it's hard to convince yourself that those crystalline, multi-part harmonies are not pre-recorded or some kind of sleight of ear." – Fort Worth Star-Telegram “There’s so much restrained joy in [“We Will All Be Changed”], it gets exponentially better with every decibel you turn it up. – Paste Magazine – Top 25 Songs of 2011
"Like ice-cold water on a hot day, their music is crisp and refreshing, and I cannot get enough. The imagery packed into their set is unreal. It’s like listening to the soundtrack of a great love story, breathtaking drama, and a dark tragedy all rolled into one over-the-top, unparalleled performance." - My Denton Music
