Brad Byrd / Many Mountains / Cloudship / Young Pine

Brad Byrd comes to Lion's Lair with Many Mountains, Cloudship, and Young Pine!

Over the course of his career, Brad Byrd has written songs that firmly occupy the rarely-explored middle ground between indie rock and alt-country. He's a genre-spanning musician, carving out a diverse sound fueled by melody, detailed storytelling, and the instincts of a journeyman songwriter who began making Americana music long before the genre had a name. Over the course of his career, he’s shared the stage with a variety of musicians, such as Jay Farrar, Mike Doughty, They Might Be Giants, Everlast, Lee DeWyze, and Family of the Year, showcasing undeniable versatility and commitment to his craft. With his fourth album, Phases, Byrd takes a look backwards, reflecting upon the lessons learned throughout his ongoing journey.

A songwriting lifer, Brad Byrd has charted his own course since the turn of the millennium. When his record label went kaput after The Ever Changing Picture's release, he started his own (Elusive Tiger), ever-focused on continuing his output. When the garage in his California home became overrun with paintings and music equipment, he transformed it into a public art gallery and performance space. Now, with Phases, he examines the human condition from various perspectives, delivering an amplified rock song one minute and a stripped-down folk ballad the next. This is the next chapter in his story; the next step on his remarkable journey, wherever it may lead.
