"Byrd Pressley has chops"

Added May 20, 2006

Byrd Pressley

Byrd Pressley has got chops. His new CD titled "P.S. I Love You" was released in 2004. Produced by Gary and Greg Grainger for Grainger Bros. Productions this release is composed of only eight tracks. Byrd gets some assistance from contemporary jazz saxophonist Kim Waters on the titile track. This makes for a definite quiet storm powerhouse any day of the week. Thirty-four minutes and twelve seconds is plenty of time for you to dicover that this CD is time well spent. Byrd has managed to balance his full-time duties working in the entertainment division of Caesar's Pocono Resorts in the Pocono Mountains, Pennsylvania while working on the title track for this CD that is to be released soon. We're featuring the title track from this CD. It clearly shows that Mr. Pressley is an R&B force to be reconned with.
