Format: Audio CD
Equal parts Celtic and folk, Dublin-bornsinger/songwriter/guitarist John Byrne is one of the few musical artists today who manage to be traditional and modern at the same time. That's clearly in evidence through AFTER THE WAKE , the first-ever album credited to the JOHN BYRNE BAND after eight years as a co-founding member of Patrick's Head. The John Byrne Band picks up where its leader had hoped Patrick's Head would go after building a large and loyal regional following from New York to Delaware and throughout the Northeast, with critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic. Not bad for a gentleman who until the mid `90s, called Dublin, Ireland his home. There's a clear reason why After the Wake comes closest to Byrne's musical vision - it explores the best of the two genres with which Byrne is often associated.

And since the John Byrne Band is "a band" after all, several other musicians - including the rhythm section of Amos Lee's band (bassist Jaron Olevsky and drummer Freddie Berman), as well as fiddle player Sara Milonovich (Pete Seeger), and even the album's producer, Andrew Keenan (guitar and banjo), loaned a hand. As proven by such standouts as "In Your Savior's Place" and "It's A Gas That Makes You Laugh Before It Kills You," the line-up instantly paid off for Byrne. Byrne's desire to mix the traditional sounds of the U.S. and Ireland harkens back to the acoustic roots of his previous band, before it switched to the more commercially viable country pop sound. For Patrick's Head fans this CD is a must have! For anyone else not knowing Patrick's Head music and discovering The John Byrne Band, this album tackles the best of both worlds: not exactly Celtic and not exactly Folk, but pure genuis that delivers the goods and then some!
