who is BYRN! ?

So why should you as a listener or booker decide for BYRN! you might say ?

Well, let me put it this way - I bet you still trust in the „made in germany“ seal (which is the right way!) and along your favorite food & beverages you enjoy at least some of the fine french craftmanship and admire the „savoir vivre“ as much as  

we all do !

Now combine these given qualities like a „pretzel“ and a „croissant“, add superior musicianship, creativity and humor to it and the product might already be pretty good, right !?

But hey, there need to be more to it, some kind of „magic“ you interfere...

What you might refer to as „magic“ could be the vibe that results from putting 4 outstanding and internationally experienced artists and human beings together, let them play and work together for a while until they form a common ground and create something only this exact combination can achieve together - their very own sound !

In this case it‘s the BYRN! - Sound:

groovy, energetic, creative and a real treat to listen and watch !
