Byron’s music doesn’t fit into one category. It is a hybrid of EDM, Trap, Dubstep, and classical music all rolled into one. People listen to it and say “Yea that’s EDM (or Trap or Dub Step), but it’s different”. Byron thinks that electronic music is the classical music of the future.
In the 80’s Byron was introduced to electronic music. His favorite musicians were The Cars, Gary Newman, and Brian Eno. He discovered Trap music only a couple of years ago, and his favorites are Martin Garrix, Milo and Otis, and A-Track. The biggest influence on Byron’s music is music from extraterrestrial beings. He heard their music several times because he is an Alien contactee. In 2009 Byron discovered that he was an alien abductee and upset his entire life for a time, because he discovered there was “something under the bed and in the closet”; it turned out to be ET’s rather than monsters. Art had been his main creative outlet and he had achieved a great deal of success with galleries and museum shows. He loved art because he could be creative and free spirited. In 2009 art lost its luster for him and he even complained a few times that making art made him feel drained and ill, rather than energized as it had made him feel for years. He felt there was need for a change and threw his efforts into writing, and wrote three books. It was also at this time that he started learning the bass guitar with instructions from a musician (now deceased) named Jimmy Daniels. Jimmy introduced him to some local musicians and bands, and he would sing or three songs with them during their performances. He was singing Country Music with these bands, and he said “after I got where I could make a mistake, and just keep going as if nothing had happened, and it not affecting me I felt like I had accomplished what I needed to.” Meditation has always been important to Byron and in 1997 he had the first experience of hearing music that seemed other worldly and strangely beautiful. It was 2011 when he heard “very strange and beautiful which was not on the CD I was listening to.” Then in 2015 Byron heard “Out the Speakers by Milo and Otis with A-Track, and a year later he bought a synthesizer and started to experiment. He did not know how to play a keyboard, or read music, but he could play intuitively where it sounded like he knew how to play. Byron works on recording new songs almost every day. To him making music is like making art or building a house. He treats sounds as objects and constructs his songs. He goes into the studio with no preconceived notion about what he will do. He picks his drums and records them, and then starts to play intuitively. It’s a lot like the action artists of the 50’s, however instead of slinging paint he is slinging music. Music that does something to the listener is his goal. One of his listeners’ said this on Amazon about his second album Learning to Live With Rockets; “This album is fantastic! When I'm feeling stressed, tired, happy, or energetic, it's perfect. That being said, the songs are exactly what you need at any given time! You can tell the artist puts his heart and soul into creating these tracks. Only someone that feels deeply and is connected to the universe could make music that lifts you to a higher place. I look forward to anything else Byron creates!
