Savannah’s New Old Music Phēnom:

Clark Byron

 

Clark Byron has been writing, performing country, folk, pop and gospel music for nearly 40 years. He has recorded two critically-acclaimed CD albums that have enjoyed frequent airplay and retail sales throughout North America and Europe.

 

He has performed numerous times on national and worldwide television on the Nashville Network (TNN), the Trinity Broadcasting Network and the Daystar Broadcasting Network. Having spent most of his adult life in Kansas City, a well-known hotspot for Southern and Country Gospel Music, Clark was named the KCCM 2000 Songwriter of the Year and the KCCM 2001 Male Vocalist of the Year, by the prestigious Kansas City Christian Music Association.

 

He was also a highly-respected studio session guitarist and a favorite guest performer on nine different Branson-style Opry shows throughout the Heartland. In 2007, Clark’s recording of Road to Zion was featured in the documentary, Through the Desert Goes Our Journey, a film depicting a major event in Mennonite history, which was produced by award-winning documentarian, Walter Ratliff. The film has aired several times on PBS and the original music soundtrack won an Emmy.

 

Now, at age 56, Clark has moved beyond the “been-there-done-that” part of his career. He is now focused on performing the music he and his chosen audience love most: many of the great popular songs of the past five decades. Through the vehicle of the esteemed Savannah Folk Music Society, Clark has found a loyal and enthusiastic audience which is sure to grow with the coming years. He is a better player and performer than ever and his best years are still ahead. It’s only fitting that he should have saved his best talents for the most deserving audience! With a voice of gold, a vocal style that rivals the world’s most evocative balladeers and an intricate finger-picking technique that rings out like fine cut crystal, Clark Byron is an instant favorite for every new audience.
