The Metal Byrds band are born musicians. London born Suzanne Birdie, has a power-pop rock voice, that compliments Sly Rye’s ripping rock riffs and lead guitar solos in every song!

These catchy songs are throwback to a time where female front-women dominated the radio waves with rocking sounds. A time where Hair Bands and Classic Rock & Roll ruled the world.

“Our sound comes from our individual influences over the decades. Sly Rye’s guitar playing style has been influenced anywhere from classic rock all the way from metal to alternative rock. Suzanne’s singing style is heavily influenced by all the great women in rock history. From Joan Jett, Pat Benetar, Stevie Nicks and Heart. We are not the typical cookie-cutter sounding rock band, and if you listen closely, you will hear a sound like none-other.” says the band of creating songs together. – The Metal Byrds

“A band that’s meant to be heard with the volume up, up, up. Terrifically catchy rock songs bordering on metal and brandishing a guitar soaked high level of songwriting”


The Metal Byrds have received rotation on both international and national online and FM radio stations, and have a fan base that keeps on growing. Currently having three songs from their latest album, that have risen up the radio charts to reach #1, they maintain at least one song on any given time on a top ten chart, every week since the beginning of 2020, as well as being featured on several explosive and popular Spotify playlists that feature other great up and coming Indie Rock bands and musicians.


The Metal Byrds is the brainchild of both Suzanne Birdie and Sly Rye Whisky. Both members were performing in other bands at the same time. On one lucky night thanks to a mutual friend, Suzanne sat in on guitarist Sly Rye’s rehearsal with his band. He asked Suzanne to sing any song and she began singing Sweet Child O’ Mine. They became fast friends that very night.

It wasn’t long after that she actually joined his band and began performing with them. However, as things go, the band was having line up issues and both Sly Rye and Suzanne decided they should create their own project together. That is when The Metal Byrds were formed.

Working on songs in the months after paved the way for The Song Byrd EP, and later their second acclaimed EP, Byrds On A Wyre, which earned them a consideration for Best New Artist for the upcoming 63rd Annual Grammy Awards. Every song is a testament to where they are at with their sound right now.

Their third EP, Life In 20, which has even further refined their sound and writing ability, was a triumphant success in the world of Indie Rock. Singles such as Dreamin and Tell Me, gave the band more notoriety on the world music platform, with offers from record labels like Curtain Call Records (US) and Bad Monkey Records (UK)

Currently, the band just released their fourth studio album. Simply titled “4”, five of the eight songs have gone to number 1 on several Indie Music Radio charts, with expectations of more chart topping singles from the record.
