About T.S. O'Byrne
Born in Jacksonville, Florida, T.S. was raised everywhere in the world, including the sleepy southern Florida town of Perrine. Music was all around, ALL THE TIME! T.S. played in several local bands but became a gun-for-hire bass player in the mid-eighties. His first band featuring original songs was the Hunt Club, which, went, very wrong..."I wrote country songs, and the band jazzed, blues and rocked them up until I didn't even recognize them!". T.S. relocated to New York City as a disc jockey in '88. He was only supposed to fill in for the other DJ for 3 months. 22 years later, he's still in NY ( on a small island in the Bronx called City Island- Great seafood!!). Now, T.S. is fronting country quartet, Stranger from the East. Playing guitar, banjo, mandolin, Singing lead vocals and writing the songs, this is exactly where T.S. want's to be! Says T.S,"as soon as this first tour is over, I'm back to writing a new instrumental album, but this time, it is Orchestral Country! Stay tuned!!
