J.R. is a singer-songwriter from the humblest of towns, Littleton, Colorado. Shaped heavily by the jazz department at the University of North Texas, J.R.’s songs tend to boast poignant, bluesy melodies over rich, sweeping harmonies. That said, J.R.’s witty lyrics are usually what set off most people’s alarms. Byrd’s “smart pop” can be most likened to John Mayer, Seal or Sting, but certainly brings its own hops to the dance.


J.R. can perform as a solo, duo, trio or with a full band. He is available for parties, events, conventions, festivals, nightclubs and more.
