Having recently announced his self-titled debut album, set for release on May 3rd, today Seattle based artist and producerSYML (AKA Brian Fennell) is excited to share the official video for his critically acclaimed single, “The Bird.” 

The video was shot by Seattle director Hayley Young and features Tacoma-based, self-taught dancer and choreographerLarieza Leigh Smith, who SYML discovered via Instagram and immediately recruited to choreograph a contemporary piece for the video, which also features two of her students.


In support of the album release, today SYML also announces a headline run of East Coast US tour dates beginning June 10thin Washington, DC at Union Stage, a West Coast stretch that begins August 12th in Los Angeles at The Troubadour and a performance at Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco on August 10th. This follows the recent announcement of an extensive UK and European tour, which kicks off in June 2019 and runs right through to the end of October, culminating with a headline show at London’s Scala on October 29th.

Fresh off a sold-out North American tour with Dean Lewis and a slew of shows at SXSW, SYML will play three headlining west coast dates next week, including sold-out shows in Portland and Seattle, before heading off to Europe for festivals. A complete list of dates can be found below.
