Byrd, Brad - 2002 The Ever Changing Picture

Brad Byrd - vocals, all instruments

Brad Byrd is one of the most intriguing new independent artists I've had the pleasure to hear in ages. A fusion of alt. country and left-of centre rock with a real contemporary feel, 'The Ever Changing Picture' is an undiscovered gem. Byrd provides a fresh alternative to typical singer-songwriters and although acoustic rhythms form the backbone of his music, producer Evan Frankfort's studio genius provides a lush, diverse sonic landscape, and Byrd's superb voice, with its semi-country twang gives an unorthodox flavour to his strangely addictive songs.

The Songs
'Better Days' emphatically introduces Byrd's sound, and is a dark, yet melodic opener complete with a dirty riff and real atr>mospheric edge. 'Factory Burn' makes similar use of modern production touches while stand-out songs 'Weird Enough' and the pop-infused 'You're Good' impressively add to the overall quality. The rousing chorus of 'I Swear You're Out There' showcases another facet to Byrd's song writing, while 'Earth and Feathers' and 'Never Came Back' have an almost Americana feel.

In Summary
Not only a talented singer and musician, Byrd is also a canny businessman, releasing 'The Ever Changing Picture' through his own Rockport Publishing venture, and given the current popularity of Ryan Adams and Pete Yorn, there's no reason why Byrd couldn't soon match their success on a suitable label such as Lost Highway.
