MRYGLD (pronounced ‘marigold’) is a rock band from Birmingham, AL, formed in 2017 by Brandon Snipes (vocals, guitar) and Shane Jewell (lead guitar). With infectious melodies, arena-ready guitar riffs, and driving rhythms, their sound is further distinguished by having two lead singers. The dueling vocals of Snipes and Alyssa Jewell (vocals, keys) weave seamlessly in and out of the tracks, sharing the spotlight.

MRYGLD recently finished recording their self-titled, debut EP and have been writing songs for a follow up full-length record.
