Hello dears! We are so thrilled to announce our 2019 project, titled TURN: a collection of twelve songs to be written and recorded over the next year. We will have four mini release events at four different farms to showcase the new songs. These events will also coincide with the turn of each season. This project, although at its beginning stages, is already very near and dear to our hearts and we are so excited to share it with you. Interested in learning more?

We are SIBYLLINE

Sibylline bends words, and invent melodies heavy with truth and bleeding joy.
— Nate Eldridge, NewsCenterMaine 207

It was Music that brought Megan Martelle and Hannah Daman together one night in 2013 in a basement in Massachusetts. Megan had just finished her time at Berklee College of Music. Hannah had just moved home from playing in a few bands in Glasgow, Scotland. Megan had her violin. Hannah had her songs. A musical connection was swiftly forged and from there on, they stuck together. Whether near or far, throughout the next few years, whenever they were together, they played.

After a few years of living in Boston, Meg moved back to Maine with the intent of making music with her sister, Fran, and…. Home was calling. Music didn't happen between the two sisters at first. It took some time and it seemed as though something was missing.

One North American house show tour and a few years later, a certain Hannah Daman found her way up to the great state of Maine where she made her roots with the sisters. It was there that a sacred sisterhood of music sparked. They played in cover bands, open mics, on the streets, and in their homes. As they grew, their sound expanded and their harmonies tightened. They met an amazing community of musicians in Portland, among them Dan Capaldi. After playing together a few times, they knew he was part of the family. A sense of togetherness was formed. Music kept showing up and would not let them go. And so, together, they followed forming Sibylline.

SPACE is our debut full length album. It's a collection of songs written over a span of years and varied locations while either searching or mourning for a space of belonging. It inaccurately chronicles the search through urban and rural environments, being planted or traveling, close friendships far away and estranged relationships in familiar places. Through this nostalgic journey, we find the universe closely attainable yet utterly mysterious. The very idea of what home is ends up stretching and expanding as it is found ultimately in our precious memories and the love of those we hold dear. It is something we carry with us and can find wherever we go.

We have been knit together to co-create something that has brought us out of the old and into the new, allowing us to partake in a beauty that is mystical and transcendent, daunting and compelling, freeing and whole. This light and changeable space is reflected in the dynamic and atmospheric quality of the sound. It is somewhere between genres, powerfully filling spaces while simultaneously creating them.

“Here is what is unexpected with SPACE: it is trippy, y’all . . . Sibylline pours mushroom tea all over those concepts and blasts right the frig off, man. It’s totally far out.”
— Victoria Karol, Portland Phoenix
