Bio

Byron has been performing for 13 years in a variety of genres including punk, blues, traditional Irish, folk, electronic, and jazz. Playing from San Diego to the San Francisco Bay area in a myriad of bands as vocalist, guitarist, or bassist has laid a solid foundation in the California music scene. Educated at Musician's Institute in Hollywood for advanced guitar you hear a plethora of styles and feels coming through in his songs. As a solo performer an exciting blend of blues and jazz influence has been molded into an entertaining cocktail of late night street smarts, loner blues, and miscreant’s mischief. Although this project is still at its earliest phase it has been prodigiously received by independent radio stations, venue owners, and open mic attendees garnering invitations to events such as the Bam Bam Annual Jazz And Blues Festival in Los Angeles and multiple radio interviews from across the nation. Often compared to a grittier Tom Waits the project has recieved wonderful praise in both print and radio reviews.
