JOHN BYRNE BAND
Dublin native and Philadelphia resident, John Byrne’s latest record A Shiver in the Sky (2019), shows his band of multi-instrumentalists vibrantly executing ten new originals. Strings, banjo, accordian and guitars escort Byrne’s vocals through a set of songs about living and pushing forward through negative times.
Following up After the Wake (2011), Celtic Folk (2013) and The Immigrant and the Orphan (2015), A Shiver in the Sky focuses on triumph over trauma. Support from radio all over the country pushed the album to #1 on the Roots Radio Report Alternative Folk Chart in January 2020. Critics have called his writing “powerful, deeply moving work that will stay with you long after you have heard it” (Sing Out).
John and the band are working on new material for a release in 2024
