Byron Short

Brisbane country musician Byron Short started out wanting to be Elvis Presley when he was five years old. Since then, he’s absorbed almost every musical influence imaginable from Beethoven to Bob Dylan and far beyond.

While Elvis and Dylan are his biggest influences, Byron describes his sound as a blend of Johnny Cash, Tom Petty and Smokey Robinson. His latest album, No Way Out gives nod to American rockabilly, country and blues, with some soul and gospel in the mix too.
