Isaac Byrd Jr. – Come Fly with Me

Taking what he calls an unorthodox approach to the trumpet, Isaac Byrd Jr. plays changes in a unique way and uses his instrument to paint a picture and tell a story. Playing what he has branded as “the sultry trumpet like no other”, the versatile, multi-talented Jacksonville, FL based artist finds a compelling, groove centered and ultra melodic way to chronicle and celebrate Life on his new CD. Byrd has a wide spectrum of emotions to share, including the joy he’s feeling as a newlywed. He was married in December 2013 to Shmeka, whose nickname is “Meek” – which is also the title of one of the album’s infectious focal tracks. The soulful and romantic, easy shuffling tune was played at their wedding as “Meek” walked down the aisle.

Years of being a bandleader and renowned sideman have led Byrd to become the powerhouse entertainer he is today, a confident, charismatic solo artist who plays from the heart and uses his instrument to draw listeners into the story. The trumpeter likes to say he “takes the temperature of the room and plays towards that” – which translates to an energetic, highly entertaining live show that involves his audience at every turn. He not only gets the crowd dancing and clapping along with him, he’ll often leave the stage and join them, performing in the crowd and connecting with appreciative fans in a dynamic, intimate way. He’s even started shows blowing his first notes while still in the dressing room and daring the audience to figure out where he’s entering.

Isaac Byrd Jr. proves to be a meticulously creative pilot taking listeners to thrilling heights as writer, producer, vocalist, and player of all instruments heard except one (the guitar). Come Fly With Me to a soul-soothing destination you’ll never forget and always enjoy. Take this destination on CDBaby.
