Who is Marc Byrd?

Marc Byrd is an American musician, writer, and producer best known as one-half of the post-rock/ambient duo Hammock, along with former Common Children band-mate Andrew Thompson.

Prior to the formation of Hammock, Marc fronted the Alternative rock band Common Children, as well as the band GlassByrd with his wife Christine Glass.

Since its formation in 2005, Hammock has released five full-length albums and 5 EPs. Marc was also involved in the 2006 ambient art project The Sleepover Series, Volume 1, which featured five solo tracks by Byrd.

After an impromptu invitation to give their first-ever live performance at the overseas debut art exhibition of Riceboy Sleeps, the artistic collaboration between Jón Þór Birgisson and Alex Somers, Marc and Andrew wrote brand-new songs to celebrate the occasion, an undertaking which evolved into their album, Maybe They Will Sing for Us Tomorrow.

In 2005, Byrd joined The Choir and produced their album O How the Mighty Have Fallen. Prior to that, Steve Hindalong of the band had produced albums for Common Children, and co-written the worship song "God of Wonders" with Byrd. The Choir's 2010 album Burning Like the Midnight Sun includes the song "Legend of Old Man Byrd", which had originally been written for and performed at his 40th birthday party.
