BRAD BYRD
WAKEY!WAKEY!

"Brad Byrd is one of the most intriguing NEW artist's i've had the pleasure to hear in ages. 'The Ever Changing Picture' is an undiscovered gem. Given the current popularity of Ryan Adam's and Pete Yorn, there's no reason why Byrd couldn't soon match their success."--Andrew Ellis -Popmatters/Ink 19

"Hotel Cafe Show of The Year", One of the single most captivating performances i've ever seen. It was like watching Eddie Vedder meets Chris Martin meets Wilco in my living room. LA, the country, the world, get ready to hear the name Brad Byrd." This album will leave you changed." -- CD Baby.

"Byrd's gruff, becalmed voice, which is equal parts Michael Stipe and Eddie Vedder, resulting in a sound that often recalls early REM ("I Swear You're Out There", for example, could be an outake from "Murmer"). -- William Rhulman, All Music Guide (4 out of 5 Stars)

If you ask Mike Grubbs' mother, she'll tell you he's the best looking boy in any given room... Raised underneath the old burgundy baby grand Mike soon found music to be the defining factor of his life. Plagued by the inability to concentrate on anything for any reasonable length of time, he found romance and escape in the world of Brahms, Bach, and Beethoven. One day he awoke to find himself a tall, sensitive, string bean of a man, with a wonderful habit of falling in love 20 times a day. So he packed his few belongings and relocated to New York City to tell his story the only way he knew how.
