About Selwyn Birchwood Band
Orlando , FL
Selwyn Birchwood stumbled upon the Blues at age seventeen while attending a Buddy Guy concert in Orlando. After witnessing the raw energy and power the music created first hand, he decided it was what he wanted to pursue.
After seeing Selwyn perform in a local club, Texas Bluesman Sonny Rhodes offered him the chance to hit the road and tour nationally. Selwyn quickly took advantage of the opportunity and has frequently toured with his blues mentor across the U.S. and Canada
In 2009, Selwyn and his band took 1st place in the Central Florida Blues Challenge. This win offered them a chance to compete in the International Blues Challenge held in Memphis, Tennessee where they finished in the top 4 of the “Beale Street Blues Kings” semi-finals competition.
