West Byrd

Talent. Focus. Initiative. These adjectives not only describe a two year old negotiating themselves out of a nap, but they also paint the picture of an ambitious young man by the name of West Byrd. His professional success in the music industry can be attributed to his neatly cultivated talent as producer, composer, arranger, pianist, and musical director in a bucketful of musical genres, including jazz, R&B, classical, and gospel. West has been influenced musically for over 20 years, beginning at the age of five. That timeframe is equal to the length of time it takes most people to decide what life is even about. These years of musical marination and study allow West to bring a buffet of musical goodies to any musical arena. As a result, West has earned opportunities to rock with some very notable artists such as Taylor Hicks, El DeBarge, Peabo Bryson, Chico DeBarge, Chante Moore, Montell Jordan, Donnie McClurkin, NAJEE, Brian Culbertson, Nathan East, Gerald Albright, Jeff Lorber, Chuck Loeb, Brian Bromberg, Paul Jackson Jr, Mike Phillips, Steve Cole, Rick Braun, Stanley Jordan, Gerald Veasley, Pieces Of A Dream, Arrested Development, Brian Simpson, Alex Bugnon, Gregg Karukas, Karen Briggs, Eric Darius, Paul Taylor, Marcus Johnson, Nick Colionne, Marion Meadows, Euge Groove, Steve Oliver, Tom Braxton, Pam Williams, Kim Scott, Jackeim Joyner, Matt Marshak, Jeff Kashiwa, Tom Browne, Elan Trotman, Josh Vietti, The Sax Pack, Dorinda Clarke-Cole, Jonathon Nelson, Rahsaan Patterson, Bobby Valentino, Tony Terry, Lil G of Silk, RL of Next, Rodnie Bryant, Shirley Murdock, and the Anointed Pace Sisters to name a few.
