It's been 18 years since I recorded my only solo album, Skinny. I've enjoyed playing drums and creating music with my band mates in The Choir, producing albums and co-writing with wonderful artists and friends for many years. I feel "lucky and blessed." In fact, that's the title of one of my new songs. I've written quite a few songs lately and have summoned the courage to sing them out loud myself.  To offer them to the wind, so to speak... from my heart to yours. I've got a lot of amazing musical friends who will help me. But like so many independent artists these days, I need your help to keep making music. Thank you for your unrelenting support, and for listening!

Check out the first song from The Warbler.
"O Hey Jimmy A"-  Marc Byrd (Byrdomatic guitars) Christy Byrd (vocals) Kevin Max (vocals) Chris Donahue (bass) Matt Slocum (cello) Britt Edwards (engineer, production) Matt Wilder (production and inspiration) Dwayne Larring (engineer) Lynn Arthur Nichols (kindness) Shane D Wilson (mix) Jim DeMaine (mastering)
