Artist Biography by

Texas-born singer/songwriter and guitarist Barry Bynum launched his career with a series of garage rock bands in the 1980s. His greatest work, however, has come through the spiritual tunes that he's favored since becoming a born-again Christian as a teenager. During a five-year stay in Belfast, Ireland, he led a rock music service at an urban church. Bynum has been drawn to music from earliest memory. He claims that he "could play the 'uke before I could stay up well on a bike." Forming a band, Liberation Suite, in San Marcos, at the age of 16, he built a solid following in the British Isles and Europe. Following the breakup of the band in the early '90s, Bynum and his wife moved to Belfast, where he launched a solo career. While residing in the war-torn Irish city, he recorded two albums: Stickin' Your Neck Out, which he recorded with Irish musicians, and To You, which combined live recordings and studio tracks. Bynum and his wife returned to Texas in 2001.
