    The Myriad was a Seattle-based band. They were selected as 2007's MTV2 Dew Circuit Breakout champions. Their last album, With Arrows, With Poise, was released in 2008.  After touring for four years, the band went on hiatus in late 2008 after finding out their drummer Randy Miller had been diagnosed with cancer. He died from chondrosarcoma in 2010.

    Drawing rave reviews from both fans and critics worldwide, The Myriad's music covered a diversely artistic panorama. Atmospheric, melodic strains fill lyrics of hope, doubt, heartache, and love, while epic soundtracks span thundering anthems and sincere confessions with a mighty thump! The band toured extensively, playing with bands such as Lovedrug, mewithoutYou, Mutemath, As Tall As Lions, etc, and quickly earned a sing-along relationship with fans everywhere...a connection founded more on captivating performances than on-stage antics. Creative melodies evocative of at times Kent, at others Bjork, are delivered with the grand musical scope of The Verve, Radiohead,and Mew.

    The Myriad was hand-picked by the music critics at MTV to be top finalists in a national search for the 'next big thing' called the "Dew Circuit Breakout". Only 12 out of over 4000 bands were selected at which time MTV turned the competition over to fan voting to ultimately determine the winner. The finale aired live on MTV2 December 15th, 2007 and featured performances by the top 3 finalists and ended, after several millions votes came in, with The Myriad crowned 2007's MTV2 Breakout champions. The bands video "A Clean Shot" was produced by MTV at the NYC Times Square TRL studios and began regular rotation on MTV Networks January 14th, 2008.

    The Myriad's first full-length record, You Can't Trust a Ladder, was featured as a Staff Favorite on iTunes (alongside the White Stripes and the Foo Fighters) when it was released in June 2005. Since then, MTV used some songs off the record for the Real World Denver show.

    The Myriad's 2008 release, With Arrows, With Poise, was mixed at Hansa Studios in Berlin, Germany by Michael Ilbert (The Cardigans, Kent, The Hives) and mastered at historic Abbey Road Studios in London, England by Adam Nunn (Air, Radiohead, Franz Ferdinand, George Martin, Mogwai) as well as acclaimed Sterling Sound in New York City by Greg Calbi (Beastie boys, John Mayer, Interpol, Norah Jones).
