Telling the Stories of Our Lives

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 https://www.allmusic.com/album/the-sea-the-sky-mw0000151253).

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!
