Corty Byron w/ The Undercover Dream Lovers

 

Corty Byron

Guitarist/Singer/Songwriter, Corty Byron has been active as a musician for over a decade. His style is pure swampy vintage rock n roll and soulful acoustic based Americana.

He released two solo projects (“Histrionic EP“ & “Endless North“), opened for / performed with artists like Gregg Allman, The Doobie Brothers, Dave Mason, Bruce Hornsby, The Gin Blossoms, Blackberry Smoke, Hot Tuna, Jimmy Vivino…. and has become a fixture of his hometown Central Pennsylvania music scene, as well as being a seasoned road hound.

From 2011-2013, Corty lived in Venice, CA, performing up and down the west coast and across the state, including venues such as The Viper Room & House Of Blues.

Since his return to PA, he began work on an upcoming album, toured Ireland (performing at De Barra’s Folk Club & Whelan’s) opened for VT Senator Bernie Sanders at Millersville University, spearheaded the 2016 ‘Concert For Refugees at Tellus360’ and became the first band to perform for inmates at Lancaster County Prison, returning for 3 performances and counting.

How do you summarize Corty Byron? …”You can’t fake authenticity.”

 

The Undercover Dream Lovers

The Undercover Dream Lovers is the American indie psychedelic rock project started by songwriter and producer Matt Koenig. Koenig debuted the first Dream Lovers EP, While It’s In Style, in early April 2016 at Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right and he hasn’t stopped since.

Koenig writes and produces all the songs for the Dream Lovers at his apartment in Brooklyn, NY. Periodically, he enlists the help of friends for a drum part or mixing advice/collaboration but hopes to eventually work with a consistent band. Being a part of a band has always been Koenig’s inspiration for music, however he has found it more practical and efficient to create the songs himself.

So far, the biggest highlight for the Dream Lovers has been the rapid success of their latest single Good Luck, which went viral on Spotify shortly after its release in October 2016. The track also landed in an episode of Vice’s “Fuck, That’s Delicious,” scoring the band their on screen debut.

The Dream Lovers started off 2017 strong with their first sold out show at Rough Trade in Williamsburg and are excited to play SXSW and Savannah Stop Over Festival on their first U.S. tour this March. Koenig is also excited for some new releases and videos he has up his sleeve.
