“Jon Byrd: subtly refining the folk-country singer-songwriter template. There’s a spry, temperate intelligence to his work, from his songwriting to his fingerpicked guitar figures and vocal phrasing.” Jewly Hight, NPR Music’s World Cafe: Essential and Emerging Artists

Any musician, songwriter, artist must have a team. It’s essential. It’s the only way things get done: Producer Thomm Jutz and TJ Tunes Studio, Duane Blevins on bass, Justin Amaral on drums, Eddie Lange on the pedal steel, Milan Miller on electric guitars and… songs. In fact, I’ve never worked so easily, or so quickly, to complete a record. Original songs, songs written with friends, friends’ songs, and a couple of good ol’ country covers… we were even able to reclaim Milan’s original recording and production of Silent Night with Justin, Eddie, and Thomm all laying in beautiful parts to bring it back to life. We should have CDs FRIDAY JUNE 16, 2017 to coincide with an appearance on The Legend 650 WSM’s “Coffee, Country, and Cody” that very morning! And lots more coming! BAP&MayorMeganBarry@SI3:21:17byPeterCooper

 I had the great good fortune to be a part of a film class at Watkins College of Art, Design & Film​ here in Nashville that took one of the songs from ROUTE 41 —Adam Wright’s “Would You Like to Dance” — and produced a music video for it. I can’t say enough about the commitment, focus, and talent of all the students involved, especially Director Roxanne Nawrot. Thank you Prof. Ron Coons​ for making this happen.
