From his basement recording studio in the small town of Issaquah, WA outside Seattle, Brian Fennell began to write and record songs under the name SYML, which means simple in Welsh. Adopted and not knowing his history or connection to his Welsh roots, many of these songs are influenced by the complex feelings that come from unknown lineage.

After having his inbox flooded with fan messages upon the use of his song "Where's My Love" in the hit TV show Teen Wolf, Fennell was overwhelmed with the support behind his solo project. The song charted for 20 weeks upon the Billboard Hot Rock Songs chart and remained #1 on Canada's CBC Top 20 charts twice. Creating music that hones in on simplicity and sensitivity, SYML released his new EP In My Body in 2018. Now in 2019, SYML is gearing up for his debut self-titled album, which is set for release May 3, 2019.
