Hope Your 4th of July Was FUN!

Took some time out from the studio to shoot video for one of the TV shows coming to your digital video menu in the next couple of months.

Mike Jones and I have created The Ultimate Network, and a new show called The Ultimate Pool Party Series to go along with the Ultimate Motorcycle Show and the Ultimate Cannabis Show. All of the shows are coming to several digital outlets before the end of the year. Watch for them! Here are the sizzle reels for them.

ONE’s Terranomaly album is getting back on track next week. Watch for “Wake Up” coming soon.


A Performance at the Famous Main Stage

041forWebThe Main Stage in Cottonwood, Arizona, is a legend in time. It has hosted a veritable plethora of acts from local to global over the decades it has been in existence. Next to the Performing Arts Center in Sedona, it is the biggest indoor stage in the area, as well.

Carla, Michael, and local favorite “Drummer Dan” performed several great rock songs last Thursday night. The trio, performing everything from Rick Derringer to ZZ Top to Terranomaly, breaks away from the traditional rock and blues numbers prevalent to the area.



Jeff is Out Of The Hospital!

Thought you might like to know that Jeff Byrd is out of the hospital, and out of in-house rehab. He has moved into a new apartment, and will now be getting more dangerous in his wheelchair, and will be preparing for new legs.

CDsPlease send Jeff your best wishes.

Also, be sure to tell everyone you know about the WAKE UP album, as the songs are only getting more timely!

With the lyrics from “What Would You Do,” “Don’t Come For My Gun,” and “Much More” in everyday news, WAKE UP is a great way to get talking with your friends and neighbors about recovering what was once great about America. We can all relate to “New American Anthem.”

You know that stuff isn’t right, and though you might not know exactly what it is, you know it needs to be addressed immediately. We hear you.


What’s the Next Album Look Like?

Some fans have been asking what the next album will be like. Jeff and I have been working since the beginning on a cover album called “TERRANOMALY: UNDER THE COVERS” and that might be the band’s next album release.

On the other hand, we also have several tracks in the works for our sophomore album which has a working title of “BE HAPPY.” Goes well with “WAKE UP” doesn’t it?

Here is a collage, a medley of samples, or whatever you might call it of some of our cover tracks.

I’ll make another post soon with some clips from BE HAPPY.


Producer/Musician Jeff Byrd Finds New Challenge

Jeff realizes his beard is gone!

Those of you in the business who know Jeff, know that he is never one to under-achieve. He set records on some of the most challenging tests you have thrown at him. He is a multi-instrument musician, composer, writer, producer, electrical engineer, designer, teacher, programmer, and more. He has kept up with the best in all of those fields.

Now, Jeff has a new challenge. He has had both legs amputated above the knees.  Please send a positive note to Jeff, and let him know you’re thinking about him.

There is Much More music to produce, Terranomaly’s second album “Be Happy” is in the works, and Jeff is a key component.


World’s Biggest Guitar Pedalboard?

IMG_0684 This may not be the WORLD’s biggest, but it is definitely quite the contraption!

Designed by Michael, this rolling unit contains a VG-8, GR-30, PODxt-LIVE and switches and pedals to modify the sounds they create. Under the mixer is a pair of Sennheiser receivers for the band’s wireless headset microphones.

IMG_0705Wanting to have a one-piece unit with a left and right output to plug into PA’s in small clubs, Michael added the telescoping mixing board mount for the Mackie mixer. The menagerie of cables is cleanly tucked away, and need not be assembled at the venue.


Terranomaly Makes FM Rotation

Three months after its release, WAKE UP, or at least a few tracks from the album, have made their way to the FM airwaves.

The first station to make the big decision is Jerome, Arizona’s FM100.5 KZRJ. You can listen on the internet at this link.

If you know someone in radio, and get them to play our music on the air, we’ll send you a CD, free. Also, get everyone you know to request TERRANOMALY on your local rock radio station. They play what you request when in large numbers. Even 20 people in a week requesting TERRANOMALY will get the attention of the program director.
