Tyto Alba was formed in the fall of 2014 by Melanie Steinway (guitar, vocals) and Matt Rossi (guitar), later joined by bassist Danny DiMarchi (One of Westword magazine’s top 20 Indie-rock bassists of Denver in 2016) and drummer Andrew Bair (Major Babes and Male Blonding). Steinway’s fingerpicking guitar style and folk background interweave with the angular influences of her counterparts to form a project artistically balancing grace with drive. Since formation, the band has opened for notable acts like Boy & Bear, Widowspeak, Mimicking Birds, Little Hurricane and Your Friend.

“Tyto Alba combines the aesthetic of acoustic music with Steinway’s electric guitar and fingerpicking technique, resulting in a sound that is part indie pop and part dream pop, a mix of warm, melodic atmospherics with organic textures…
There is a certain moment in a band’s trajectory when you can actually observe the music evolving. Denver four-piece Tyto Alba is experiencing just such a moment: a young band spreading its wings in sound and spirit before an audience’s eyes.”
-Tom Murphy, Westword Magazine


“Tyto Alba, indie band from Denver, Colorado, add their distinct and original style to the indie rock genre, taking inspiration from their diverse influences and their passionate artistic hunger” 
-Brandon Wheelock, Essentially Pop


“…twisting your expectations of what a rock song should do without totally overhauling the model.”
