About The Singing Byrds

IT ALL BEGAN IN THE LATE FIFTIES, WHEN ANNA {MAMA} BYRD WAS A SONG LEADER IN A LOCAL CHURCH, WOULD TAKE HER TWO TODDLERS, LETTING THEM SING AS SOON AS THEY COULD CARRY A TUNE AND HOLD A MICROPHONE.

IN 1976 MAMA, JEANIE AND ELIZABETH WERE BEING INVITED TO DIFFERENT CHURCHES TO SING. THEY SANG WITH ONLY A FLAT TOP GUITAR, AND MAMA BYRD WOULD SOMETIMES PREACH REVIVALS. SPRING OF 1977 THEY RECORDED THEIR FIRST ALBUM WITH COMBINED MONEY FROM INCOME TAX RETURNS.

RECORDINGS WERE SELLING AND DATES WERE BOOKED WELL IN ADVANCE, MORE MUSIC WAS NEEDED. ELIZABETH LEARNED TO PLAY THE BASS GUITAR AND JEANIE PLAYED TAMBOURINE AND HAS SINCE GRADUATED TO PERCUSSIONS. ROUNDING OUT THE STRING MUSIC IS JEANIE'S HUSBAND, FERRELL BAILEY WHO PLAYS FLAT TOP GUITAR AND ALSO DOES THE DRIVING AND TAKES CARE OF THE SOUND. DUE TO RECENT CHANGES IN THE MINISTRY THEY PERFORM WITH SOUND TRACKS AND A FEW SONGS WITH LIVE MUSIC.

IN 2004 BRIDE OF CHRIST PUBLISHING/BMI WAS ESTABLISHED TO HOUSE SONGS WRITTEN BY THE GROUP MEMBERS, WHICH CAN BE FOUND ON THEIR RECORDINGS. AND ALSO IS HOME TO SEVERAL OTHER ARTIST FOR THEIR PUBLISHING NEEDS. IN JANUARY OF 2011 THEY BOUGHT THEIR OWN RECORD LABEL, RAPTURE READY RECORDS "GET CAUGHT UP". THE LATEST RELEASE, "WINGS" WAS THE FIRST PROJECT ON THE NEW LABEL.

THEY HAVE MOVED INTO A FULL SCALE MINISTRY, INCORPORATING MORE REVIVALS AND LADIES RETREATS WITH THEIR SINGING ENGAGEMENTS AND CONCERTS, DUE TO THE FACT THERE ARE NOW TWO MINISTRIES IN THE GROUP. THE LADIES HOST A LADIES RETREAT EVERY YEAR THE FIRST WEEK~END OF JUNE IN BEAUTIFUL RENFRO VALLEY, KENTUCKY.
