This St. Louis-based contemporary duo started out as a musical vehicle for songwriters Doug Byrkit (guitar, vocals) and Brian Zielie (drums) to express songs that had no outlet in their other music endeavors. Friends since studying music together in college, the intrepid musicians toured nationally and internationally with various other entities before settling in on OddsLane. Rooted in the South City of St. Louis with roots, blues and funk history, the two released Last Night on Cherokee on Bongo Boy Records in 2016 as a follow up to 2012’s Dark Matters. Recorded at Sawhorse Studios in St. Louis, mixed in Los Angeles by Grammy Award-winning producer David Z, and mastered in New Orleans by Grammy Award-winner David Farrell, the latest record reflects a bluesy, rootsy feel with influences from The Beatles, The Black Keys, Joe Bonamassa and Jimi Hendrix. The two have had a good deal of success in licensing music to TV shows as well, putting the music of OddsLane all over the place.
