Dyado, (pronounced dee-ah-dough) is the project of east coast songwriters Louisa Stancioff and Matt Lohan. The two are cousins who reconnected later in life, and bonded over singing old country songs, and playing fiddle. Together, they have crafted a hazy, film-grain sound that phases between dreamy California beach days, and fall fields drenched in fog. Dyado sings songs about adventure, lost love, and walking the line between youth and adulthood in a life on the road.

Dyado, (pronounced dee-ah-dough) is an alt country band  formed by cousins Louisa Stancioff and Matt Lohan. The two grew up in different parts of the east coast, and reconnected later in life in mid-coast Maine through a series of fortunate coincidences. After re-meeting, the two bonded over songwriting, country music, and fiddle tunes. Together, they wrote and produced their first EP in 2016 while working summer jobs, and living at their grandfather's house in mid-coast Maine. 

In 2018, while living in Asheville, NC, the duo recorded and produced their first full length album, and toured it all over the country. From Maine over to California,  from Alaska and down to New Orleans. 


Recently, the duo began making inroads on their second studio album, working with producers Malachi DeLorenzo and Kevin Ratterman, both based in Los Angeles. 


The band is currently in LA, but plans to be back on the East Coast this coming summer and fall.

Dyado means grandfather in Bulgarian.
