Jonathan Byrd and the Pickup Cowboys

Jonathan Byrd is a preacher's son, a Gulf War veteran, and an award-winning songwriterfrom Chapel Hill, North Carolina, known for literary, outsider songs that have becomeAmericana favorites. The Chicago Tribune called Byrd "one of the top 50 songwriters ofthe past 50 years.

Multi-instrumentalist Johnny Waken cut his teeth on electric guitar in Pittsburgh withrock legend Norm Nardini, opening for The Blues Brothers Band on their Red, Hot & Bluetour in 1992. After taking a few years away from music, Johnny is back at it with thePickup Cowboys.

Austin McCall is a drummer of all trades, having played with such diverse acts asSenegalese griot Diali Cissokho, new Indie duo Violet Bell, and international theatertroupe Paper Hand Puppet Intervention. Austin uses all his modes to support JonathanByrd's diverse catalog of songs and Johnny Waken's instrumental antics.

Jonathan Byrd and The Pickup Cowboys are musical gunslingers, vaudevillianhucksters, and old-fashioned tent revivalists. With their new album Pickup Cowboy(2018), they have brought a bold new set of working-class anthems to Americana fans,and a spirit-raising show to back it up.
