Dallas, Texas, USA

Sayonara is a beautiful concoction of Debbie's pop punk attitude and Sean's rippin' blues and grungy eclectic tones. Sayonara loves to play loud and live! The creative core of Sayonara remains Debbie and Sean, although they perform live with a drummer. "It's Nothing Personal" EP in the works.


Sean Blythe moved to his hometown of Dallas from Chicago in the winter of 2009. After a rough breakup with his previous band World Wide Riot, he decided to take some time away from the windy city. Debbie Pucek had recently split with her previous band, Back After Dawn, when she met Sean in late summer 2010.

Influences include pop punk and classic rock music. Electronic flavors have expanded the palette as of late. Some electronic flavors have slowly been mixed in as of late as well. They are currently wrapping up their first collection of originals titled "It's Nothing Personal." It is to be released by Lilypad Records in early 2012.

Currently, Sayonara is gigging in the greater Dallas area.
