Lytle also performs his music live with a group of musicians known as Alec Lytle & Them Rounders featuring upright bass, mandolin, pedal steel guitar, percussion, and harmony vocals. Now, with his debut album The End of Ours, his aim is to take listeners for an experience that can remind them of a simpler and calmer time. Americana influenced music that he strives to fill with a sense of place… the tall pines, rolling hills, and blankets of enveloping coastal fog that define his home, the rural coastal mountains of Northern California.
Lytle wrote most of the songs for The End of Ours over the four years he lived in a yurt he built in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Most nights were spent alone with the Pacific coastal fog collecting in the redwood trees overhead, dripping onto the canvas roof… Lytle often says that the tent structure was a great place to think and to write.
