byron biography

When byron played their first show in 2006, lead singer and composer Dan Byron was already an established star on the Romanian rock scene, after years of playing in cult bands Kumm and Urma. The other members were no strangers to the scene either - most notably, keyboardist 6fingers had already achieved European fame with his metal band Magica, while Costin Oprea was an experienced and highly sought-after blues guitarist. These divergent influences, complete with Dan Byron's progressive/acoustic rock background, later came to define the band's ever-expanding, chameleonic sound.

In 2008, inspired by the "MTV Unplugged" sessions, they completely re-orchestrated the songs from their 2007 debut "Forbidden Drama" and filmed an unplugged show in a Transylvanian citadel, later released on DVD as "Acoustic Drama". After releasing a second album the following year, 2010 finds them 100m underground in a Transylvanian salt mine filming the two-part concert "Live Underground", a massive undertaking which attracted huge media attention - enough for the concert to be broadcast on HBO, prior to the DVD and Blu-ray release.


Released in spring 2013 and prefaced by the hit single "Road Trip", byron's latest album "30 Seconds of Fame" is a tasteful mix of rock & blues grooves, acoustic vibes and electronic textures - a definite step forward in the band's tireless musical exploration.
