Plus all the folks that played on, listen to and helped out with this project.
And beautiful Irina.

Joe and Alex are why the recored hangs together like it does. I argued about 9 songs and 36mins and Alex reminded me in the strongest terms that just like last time, I/we set out to make a record, not what we call a Nashville "songwriting resume."
So it's a record.

"The nine song hammer." R.S.

What the critics are saying about Down At The Well Of Wishes:
"Clearly maintaining his standard, mature songwriting is married to some classy playing, whilst Jon's warm, slightly gruff but very relaxed singing holds the centre."–John Davy, No Depression/Flyinshoes

"Full of lovely guitar touches and brimming with clever, mordant songs"–Martin Chilton, The London Telegraph

"The vocals on Byrd’s new R.S. Fields-produced album have the graciousness of Don Williams along with traces of Willie Nelson’s free-as-the-breeze delivery. To put it another way, Byrd’s an understatedly great singer. And the songwriting… applies a fresh, sharp, Southern vocabulary. He’s understatedly great at the writing part, too."–Jewly Hight, The Nashville Scene

"Smooth, affecting, classy country…mature experience to match the vocal finesse."––Barry Mazor, Engine145.com

"A superbly talented songwriter… on a par with other Americana stars like Prine, Snider, Crowell...
 a fine representation of one of the best songwriters and stylists today.”–Andy Ziehli, Americana Gazette
