Preface: VYIE (ˈvī-ə \ ˈvā-ə, dependent) is the name of a darkly inspirational non-fiction character. VYIE is a four-letter-word. VYIE is a band.
Once upon a time [March of 2012], friends and protagonists of a like-minded cause, Janey Criss and Jessi Monroe, stole three days from their lives of post-wizardry and fashioning, of sorts, in order to conduct a musical writing experiment. The result was an assuming product for the formulaic concoction at hand: boisterous synths, curious minors, acoustic elements, playful rhythms and thick, resolute vocals. Shortly following the experiment, Alec Yeager was invited to add thoughtful battery to the equation. Logistics were discussed. And VYIE became.
The goal of VYIE on record is to take each song forward, into and through various methods of design. The goal of VYIE live is to take each song backward, beyond technical construction and artistic conception, in order to explore each meaning attentively and thematically with others. VYIE invites you to come explore as well.
