Formed in the fall of 2016 by Nick Galvez and Ian Cowell, B/I/R/T/H/D/A/Y is a Progressive Synthwave duo from Oakland, CA, seamlessly meshing the sounds of the past, present, and future into an original take on nostalgia-fueled music.
The two became friends nearly a decade ago while playing in various local bands in the rock scene around the East Bay Area. At a birthday party for Ian’s daughter, they started talking about how they were in between projects and wanted to do something with their backlog of ideas. Using a combination of synthesizers, guitars, and raw nerd power, B/I/R/T/H/D/A/Y was born, and in December of 2017 after a year of playing their material for a wide range of audiences, their debut album, “Wolfdads”, was released.
In 2018 Jay Kim, also known as Ronin Op F, a reputable producer and electric violinist, began joining B/I/R/T/H/D/A/Y in their live shows, turning the duo into a power trio. Recently they have finished as-of-yet released collaborative projects, and are working on the follow-up to Wolfdads.
