Not Even Happiness is the second studio album by American singer-songwriter Julie Byrne. The album was recorded and mixed in Byrne's hometown of Buffalo, New York, except for string arrangements by Jake Falby, which were recorded at a cabin in Holderness, New Hampshire. Her new album has the lucidity and tactility of a healing crystal. Not unlike Phil Elverum, she paints sublime, awestruck moments when simple things become overwhelming. The album is labeled as a contemporary folk release. According to Ed Nash of The Line of Best Fit, Not Even Happiness features leitmotifs of "nature and matters of the heart".
