I met Peter when I was in Ireland as musical director for ‘Elvis The Concert’. I was impressed when I heard the music he had written. Sensitive lyrics and flowing melodies along with a beat realy made me take notice.His music is well organized, he can write, he can sing and to me that spells success. Anything I can do to help just let me know.

I had the pleasure of meeting Pete in Mexico at the Zihuatinajo International Guitar Festival. Once Peter started playing,we would all just stop and listen.Hell,I’d rather listen to him than play myself! His original songs knocked everybody out! I’m expecting to hear him on the radio any day now. I am very proud to call Peter Byrne my friend.”
Bebo Whitehead,(Dr Hooks guitarist)

Peter Byrne is quite simply one of the most passionate, upliftingly enthusiastic musical souls I have ever met. He has a completely natural, unfettered and unassuming quality to every song he pens, and plays them as though it is the last time he’ll ever play them again. A remarkable musician in the grand singer/songwriter tradition with undeniable integrity. Absolutley NOT to be missed! Powerful.’
Richard Smith , Recording Artist and Professor of Music,USC


I am writing in support of Peter Byrne.  I was on a trip to Galway and went to the Quays Music Hall/Resturant bar and Peter and his band The Glass Onion Band were playing that night and they were absolutely terrific!  At the time I was the entertainment chair for the Nantucket Yacht Club, Nantucket Island, MA and was responsible to book entertainment for all social events at the club.  On a whim, I asked Peter if he and his band would like to come to Nantucket and play in August for the annual Shipwreck Ball.  I gave him a budget and asked him if he could make it work with airplane fares etc. and he did.  They were all so wonderful in every way, on time, well dressed, well mannered and on top of all of that they ‘rocked the club’ and people still talk about them to this day.  It was a wonderful experience and one I will always remember.  If I were still the entertainment chair I would not hesitate to hire them again!!!

A&R Press Bio

Recording Artist/Singer,songwriter Peter Byrne

Bound by no genre, Peter Byrne writes music that is driven by the beat of his heart. It stems from the pure emotional content of the moment. The composition reflects the true feelings of the artist during the peak of creativity. And the performance does full justice to the emotional impact of the written song itself. More honesty in songwriting cannot be found. This is the secret to Byrne’s artistic power. “My style of writing varies depending on how I feel. At the moment I’m writing more swing and blues songs, but my first record had a more suttle style.”


. Music makes him feel, he says, “happy, sad, confused, amazed, perplexed, surprised, mesmerized and inspired … but most of all, it makes me feel alive!” And truly, Byrne’s music is an awakening, a shot to the mind of pure transcendent adrenaline. Feel your consciousness achieve a keen edge at the hands of Byrne’s potent songwriting.


. He writes in the moment, with freedom tempered by insight, offering songs that make you feel and are the essence of feeling themselves. Speak and sing from the heart and the listener will follow. Nowhere is this more true than in the songs of Peter Byrne. “Music has always brought me comfort. I hope mine brings the listener a little comfort too.”
