About Ron Byrne
I started working in the music business in the fall of 1972 by singing & playing in The Flatiron Band, which I established. During my music & one act tv career, I performed on stage, ran sound (which sometimes called for a huge sound system that could fill a football stadium), was a booking agent, road manager, EMMY judge & toured with a national act. I worked as a sound engineer for many national acts which include The Drifters, The Coasters, The Box Tops, Danny & The Juniors, Charlie Daniels, The Ozark Mountain Daredevils & the tv show Howdy Doody.
I went to a recording studio in Boulder, Colorado, back in 1985 and spent $125.00 for an hour’s worth of recording time. An album seemed unattainable as it would take days and days worth of time ($) to do it correctly. That experience was disheartening but the idea of recording music seemed very interesting to me. As a result of that interest, I designed & opened Naked Ear Recording Studio in 1995. I was able to record some of the most talented people on the planet. So far I have recorded, mixed, mastered & manufactured over 500 albums in the past 32 years. I have also released my own album called, “The Flatiron Band – Ron Byrne Originals” so I finally did get to record my own stuff.
The music gods have now saved for me, “the best of the best,” recording artist Chris Harris. What a pleasure it is to experience someone so talented & professional. (Aah, another tic in my BIO hat.)
Life is good!
