Jonathan Byrd
Jonathan is just plain fun. His lyrics and musical style lead you into a place that you wouldn't venture on your own. I would call him a lyrical poet and a painter of all things unnoticed. If you ever want to lose yourself for a couple of hours, have read on anything he has written - it flows and flows like the Mississippi.

"I started touring full-time in 2000, realizing that I could do it as a solo performer and actually make a living. Of course, that’s what every other singer/songwriter in America was doing, too, but I didn’t even know what a singer/songwriter was, so that didn’t bother me. I thought I was a folk musician. Over time, I realized that folk got cross-dressed and don’t mean what it used to mean anymore. I think my friend Aengus Finnan said it better than anybody I’ve heard yet, “It’s a style of presentation.” So that’s just it, as long as you don’t put on the razzle-dazzle and shake your ass in a sequin skirt, you can be a folk musician. Sit there on a stool and play your tuba, tell a story once in a while and wear some Birckenstocks. Everybody will think you’re a folk musician."
