Great one two punch with the review and interview.  Thanks!

Enjoyed the interview Henry...and the review...

I've been a fan since I caught Jonathan Byrd in a solo concert held in a Unitarian church in east Fort Worth back in the mid 2000s.  He was a spellbinding performer and I found his lyrics were thought provoking and witty. 

During an intermission, I purchased his CD titled "The Sea & The Sky".  He collaborated with an acoustic folk/world music ensemble called Dromedary on the songs.  It was a mind-blowing album and I highly recommend it to anybody on No Depression (you can hear samples at

I've picked up some others since then and enjoyed them as well.  Byrd, along with Corb Lund, are two amazing artists who really, really deserve a lot more recognition for the amazing music they write.

Thanks for the great article!
