NOTES
Fyre & Reign blends Roots Rock and Americana with subtle hints of funk, jazz, soul, folk, country and world music. The band has been compared to Alabama Shakes, Fleetwood Mac The Cranberries and Edie Brickell and The New Bohemians with a little bit of Tom Waits thrown in for good measure.

Fyre & Reign came to life as a recording project for American singer/songwriter Mikael Lewis and his daughter, Irish singer/songwriter Hannah Butterfield. While Hannah was in Ireland working on a solo project, Mikael garnered interest from longtime friend and drummer Eric Watson. After the first rehearsal it became obvious that this would be more than just a one off recording project. So in October 2014 Mikael and Hannah packed up the Uhaul and made the move to join Eric in Utah. Bassist Josh Hone was soon recruited and the band was born.

Fyre & Reign released Curiosity on June 27th with a live streaming kick off show at Kulak’s Woodshed in Hollywood, California. The band followed this show with a successful tour of Ireland, England and Scotland. The tour ended with a show at the infamous "The Saint" in Asbury Park, NJ. Shortly after this tour the individual band members began pursuing other projects. Eric is currently playing with several bands, Josh is pursuing film work, Hannah is studying Music Performance at Leeds University in England and Mikael is working on a new solo album due for release in Spring 2017.
