Biography

The O'Byrnes make music, a bond that has tied this family together from the beginning. Mike and Terry always made sure that musical instruments were left conveniently laying around the house to be picked up and played by their children. When son Ryan started playing and singing in 2003, they decided to leave the living room and start playing serious music.

They spent 2005 touring the US, playing many of the country's greatest live music venues, including the main stage of the Philly Folk Festival, The Birchmere, Jorma's Fur Peace Ranch, Mass MOCA, The Keswick Theater, The Count Basie Theater, the IMAC in Long Island, The Ramshead, and the Belcourt Theater in Nashville. In January of 2006 the family pulled up stakes and relocated to Houston, opting to make the famous Texas music community their home base, and officially formed The O'Byrnes. Their debut CD, "Now and Then", showcasing the band's vocals and songwriting talents, was released May 15, 2006.
