Great songwriters are often gifted with the ability to spin tales, to imagine characters, and fabricate fantastic details of their lives. Alec Lytle is no such songwriter. Woven of his own loves, losses, triumphs and missteps, his songs ring honest and carry the character and mood of the redwood forest where he lives and writes. The husband and father of two lives with his family in a house he designed and built on a plot of land in the rural Northern California coastal mountains—an area with a rich history, including Ken Kesey’s acid tests and the more than 20 albums recorded by Neil Young at his iconic ranch. Here, he wrote his debut album, The End of Ours (2015) and his latest, The Remains of Sunday (2020).
Alec Lytle and Them Rounders is a band of musicians, songwriters and California natives who have woven a tapestry of music hailing from the North California Mountains.
