RealTracks Artist Bio: Byron House

Multi-instrumentalist Byron House (banjo, guitar, dulcimer, trumpet, bassoon, percussion, piano) became a convert to the bass at age 17 after hearing Jaco Pastorius on Weather Report′s "Heavy Weather." Byron says, "I went home and did some woodshedding for a year, playing his records over and over."

Other bass players that influenced Byron in his formative years included Paul McCartney, James Jamerson, Phil Lesh, Jack Casady, Ray Brown, Paul Chambers, Junior Huskey and Roy Huskey.

In the mid-1980s, Byron packed his bass and left his hometown of Bowling Green, Ky., to relocate in Nashville. He has never looked back, becoming a first-call player working with Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Emmylou Harris, Jorma Kaukonen, Mark O′Connor, and Dolly Parton. In addition, he has performed or recorded with The Dixie Chicks, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter, Al Kooper, Jim Lauderdale, Shelby Lynne, Buddy and Julie Miller, Nickel Creek, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Linda Ronstadt, and Clay Walker to name a few. In 2005, Bryon was recognized with a Grammy nomination for his work on Mark O′Connor′s "Thirty-Year Retrospective."

Byron lives near Nashville with his family and is busy with tours, TV appearances, and recording sessions – including these RealTracks for PG Music!
