    DYAN is Alexis Marsh, Samuel Jones and Daniel Dorff Jr. Their debut album, Looking For Knives, was written by Marsh and produced by Marsh and Jones (who make up the film scoring duo Alexis & Sam) between 2012 and 2015 while living and working in Los Angeles and Cincinnati. Dorff, who toured in Jim James’s solo band and appeared on Ray Lamontagne’s Ouroboros album (of which Marsh also contributed vocals for one track), joined as drummer and pianist during the album’s final recording stages at La La Land Studio in Louisville, KY. Alexis & Sam are currently writing music for TNT’s upcoming TV series Animal Kingdom starring Ellen Barkin and Scott Speedman.

    DYAN’s Looking For Knives is out now on CD and digital formats.

  • HERE’S WHAT PEOPLE ARE ALREADY SAYING ABOUT DYAN:

    • “Meet DYAN. The buzzy new synth pop act, comprised of film composer duo Alexis & Sam (a.k.a Alexis Marsh and Samuel Jones) and Dan Dorff Jr., has been steadily on the rise since their singles "Days Upon Days" and "Looking for Knives" first lit up the hype machine in recent months.” - BILLBOARD
    • “… compellingly. Tremulous synth and steady voice function as bedrock, electric guitar and wild horns haphazardly dropped on top to inject a shock of energy. It’s synthpop in its most toned-down sense, the kind of music that reminds you that taking off the accelerator can provide a sumptuous result too.” - POPMATTERS
    • “Best New Music” - AMERICAN SONGWRITER
    • ‘St. James’ has the kind of simple, plotting beat that could run for miles and never run out of fuel. Thankfully, DYAN - the project of Alexis Marsh, Sam Jones and Daniel Dorff Jr. - don’t deal with simplicity. They throw gorgeous, simple oddities in at every opportunity. This is like The War on Drugs if you stripped things down to the barest of bones.” - DIY MAGAZINE
    • “With soothingly-alluring chords and vocals, DYAN's new record ‘St. James’ has made its way on my list of songs that I'm definitely going to replay the fuck out of. Everything this record offers is top-notch. Like that guitar solo for example… damn.” - INDIE SHUFFLE
    • DYAN is the moniker for songstress Alexis Marsh. Her new song “St. James” is a ghostly pop number highlighting driving electronic drums and Marsh’s soulful voice.” – BUFFABLOG
    • “DYAN’s debut single “St. James” is a stunning track that mirrors the intimacy of Mazzy Starr if the legendary group used a drum machine and ambient effects.” - THE REVUE
    • “DYAN‘s “St. James” doesn’t pretend to be anything more than what it seems; an engine revving rock-ballad saluting the 80s and offering a hand to those lost within the static of 2016.” - HIGH CLOUDS
    • “’St. James’is a great art, and I bow before it.” – NICOROLA / GERMANY
    • “… splendid and atmospheric.” – COAST IS CLEAR
    • “Truly, this is a wonderful tune, and I’ll be on the lookout for more from them.” - AUSTIN TOWN HALL
    • “It’s hard not to love an indie track that starts off with a line about getting naked. DYAN are an utter treat on ‘Days Upon Days,’ the trio blending light dance vibes with a punchy tale of moving on. Not to be missed.” - PRESS PLAY
    • “While Alexis Marsh of DYAN shares delightful frontwoman comparisons [with Florence and The Machine], the band no doubt is trailblazing a path all their own with infectious singalong melodies and chord progressions that burrow deep.” - KICK KICK SNARE
    • “…the trio's first LP as Dyan contains electro-indie tunefulness that could make it an opening-band counterpart to Future Islands.” - MILWAUKEE JOURNAL-SENTINEL
