About The Byways
folk rock/guitar pop from Rochester, NY
The Byways were founded in 2016 as the songwriting project of Alex Goettel. Today the Rochester-based band includes Matt Goettel on drums, Nick Lenhard on bass, and Rob Varon on guitar.
With songwriting influences ranging from Lennon/McCartney to Maggie Rogers, Alex and The Byways draw listeners in with heartfelt lyrics, melodic guitars, and a powerful rhythm section. Live shows toggle between fast paced rockers and delicate acoustic ballads, leaving no listener left behind.
