BYRD & STREET Return to the Rear Window!
Rear Window Listening Room is proud to welcome back Tommy Byrd and Kathy Street to our stage!

In the spring of 2001 something remarkable happened. While recording in Tommy Byrd's studio, Kathy Street sang a simple harmony along with Tommy's melody. But what they heard was something unexpected. It sounded almost like three people singing! They knew they were onto something special, and decided then and there to perform together. Byrd and Street was born. Now, thousands of gigs later, a fifth CD released in 2017 ( This Much Is True ) is getting airplay around the globe as did their first four CD's Stories of Life, Songs of Love; Love Broke the Fall; and Then and Now, and Words and Music and  they're still singing with that rare blend. Maybe it comes from the combination of Kathy's light, almost ethereal sound, and how it meshes with Tommy's earthy, soulful voice. Who knows. But, however it happens, it happens. And they were recognized by the TEXAS MUSIC AWARDS with a nomination for Duo/Group of the Year for 2014 as they were in 2012 and 2009. Kathy was also nominated for Female Vocalist for 2012 based on her performance on Then and Now.   In addition Tommy was recognized by the KERRVILLE FOLK FESTIVAL in 2013, 2011 and 2009 as a NEW FOLK FINALIST in their song competition.

Byrd and Street continue to perform at venues throughout the southwest. The singer/songwriter team has appeared on radio and television shows, won numerous songwriting competitions, and were Regional Winners at the Kerrville Folk Festival in 2002, 2003, 2007 and 2012. January 8, 2003 was declared Byrd and Street Day by Austin Mayor Will Wynn. Byrd and Street were Officially Showcased at the Southwest Regional Folk Alliance Conference in 2004. In 2005 the song Just an Old House from their CD was licensed by the Redman Foundation, a non-profit organization in Watsonville, CA. In 2007 their song My Forever Family became the official song of the Adoption Coalition of Central Texas, and is being used by other adoption agencies around the country. Austin German Shepherd Rescue licensed Let Me Be Your Friend for use in advertising and promotions in 2008 followed by numerous licenses throughout the US. . In the spring of 2011, Paul Stookey (of Peter, Paul, and Mary) recorded  their song, Let Me Be Your Friend  (Lemmie Be Your Friend) to be used for advertising with "Pet Connect" on the east coast.. Their album, Love Broke the Fall was #13 in July '09 on the Folk DJ Chart, made the Folk DJ Top '09 Albums Chart, and was #21 on the Freeform American Roots Chart, all songs on the CD getting airplay.  Their third CD, Then and Now released July 2011 was #27 on the Folk DJ Charts for October 2011 and was on the Texas Roots Chart.  Words and Music, thier 4th CD released in 2014 has made #8 on the March Folk DJ Charts remaining on the Charts for 4 consecutive months, and was #2 on the Roots Msuci Charts. A 5th CD, This Much is True was released early 2017..

In December 2018, Byrd & Street will organized and host their 9th annual Mistletoe Jam, a collaboration of some of Austins finest musicians performing to benefit the Heart Gallery of Central Texas, whose work is to find forever families for Central Texaschildren in foster care. Byrd's song, "My Forever Family was adopted by the Heart Gallery as well as by other adoption agencies around the country.
