About Jack Byron:
Jack Byron is a singer-songwriter from Chicago, IL. A self-taught musician, Byron's musical heroes range from The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Ryan Adams, Van Morrison, Tom Petty, Jason Isbell, and John Mayer. He picked up the guitar and piano in high school, wrote his first song at 17, and has been honing his craft ever since.
With an affinity for writing about the simple joys and struggles of your everyday man and woman, Byron found himself drawn towards the Folk/Americana genre, with its rich musical heritage and storytelling tendencies. With songs ranging from topics such as relationships, travel, country living, American landscapes, love, strife, and fun times with friends and loved ones, Jack Byron is a contemporary artist with a timeless feel who delivers the essence of true Americana in a truly refreshing, completely new, and unique way.
His song, "Just A Fool," from the EP, Gemini Moon, won an Akademia award for song of the month in May 2016 and made it to the semi-finals of the Americana Music Association's annual songwriting contest in 2017.
Byron has appeared on WGN Chicago, AM 1050 WLIP Guaranteed Raw (Kenosha, Wi), and St. Xavier University radio. He has played iconic Chicago venues as well, including Elbo Room, 210 Live!, Bottom Lounge, Underground Wonder Bar, Uncommon Ground, and House of Blues. As an artist who has been recorded and mentored by the late Gary Loizzo (Producer/Sound Engineer of STYX and REO Speedwagon, and singer of the 1968 #1 smash hit, "Bend me, Shape Me"), shared the stage with Denny Laine (Paul McCartney & Wings lead guitarist and co-writer, as well as founding member of the Moody Blues), and opened the world's premier Beatles tribute band, American English, Jack Byron is certainly on his way. He will be playing his first festival (Homegrown Festival) this year and will be releasing his first full length album by the end of 2018.
