Poor Richard’s Book Shoppe welcomes JR Byrd to the Naked Arts! All the way from Denton, Texas! )
J.R. Byrd first knew he was destined to be a songwriter when he realized he was too slow & too short to play in the National Basketball Association. With his b-ball dreams dashed, he resorted to practicing gloomy Chopin nocturnes. With a little instrumental facility under his belt, Byrd began writing simple gooey love songs for various middle school crushes, which in turn of

ten netted him Hershey Kisses, but never kiss kisses. It wasn’t until his senior year of high school when he played the greasy role of Kenickie that girls started to notice J.R.’s vocal lightning. In music school Byrd’s song-smithing got “all growns up”, and he really delved into the acoustic guitar as his main songwriting tool. Now, Byrd’s main focus is on continuing to develop as a wicked, yet somewhat righteous, solo artist. Might you need him in your living room?
