“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

The Alternate Root
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!
Go to the “Upcoming Shows” tab/link and check out where I’ll be solo and with the fabulous Auto Parts. Oh, and apparently I now have T-Shirts… yep.
