…look to the sky, MYA BYRNE It Don’t Fade (Rhinestone Tomboy LP)
Mya Byrne, It Don’t Fade (Rhinestone Tomboy LP), available on Kill Rock Stars, Bandcamp, Tidal
by Walter Price
It isn’t her most recent single, but it’s certainly a great place to start while considering preordering the hotly anticipated forthcoming LP; ‘Rhinestone Tomboy’. I’m talkin’bout, the album’s opening number the soft rock with a lil country shuffle, “It Don’t Fade” from Oakland’s burgeoning voice of a new generation of singer-songwriters, Mya Byrne. The optimistic storyline of eternal hope and the love for ties that bind is soundtracked by an indelible and timeless vibe that will induce a walk in the park or two heads up and footloose.
Byrne’s voice, earnestness, and life’s journey all make for more than enough intrigue but if you need a lil more nudging, check out the sunny Jozie Zamjahn-directed music video. Follow the singer as she takes a stroll, soaking up all the good the day has to offer— It, like the song itself, is pure feel-good through and through.
You can stream “It Don’t Fade” and view its film, here at the GTC.

“On Rhinestone Tomboy, we are treated to a portrait painted with shades of Byrne’s youth, one spent listening to stacks of her mama’s dusty 45s, and thrift store 8-tracks blasting from blown speakers out the window of an old Chevy. Songs that opened the trailhead to a lifelong journey that informed Byrne’s musical landscape.” – KRS
