Guitarist, musician, songwriter, and producer Byron Nash electrifies audiences with elevated rock n’ roll that’s unapologetically unique and steadfast in Nash’s impeccable ability to improvise based on sound alone. Nash takes audiences on a musical journey, bending genres at an intersection where powerful soul meets rock intensity and emotional acoustic. 

Nash is a 10x headliner of Pennsylvania events like the Three Rivers Arts Festival, First Night Pittsburgh, and Picklesburgh. He has slain major venues including Stage AE, Club Cafe, and Downtown Pittsburgh’s Allegheny Overlook, performing solo, with a full band, and occasionally with major acts. Nash has also performed nationwide, including in Seattle, Arizona, South Carolina, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., West Virginia, and Ohio.

Nash’s passion for music has family ties rooted in a lifelong love for concerts and record store culture fostered by his mother and grandmother. After getting his first guitar at 15, Nash studied and listened to heavy metal, which defined his early chops. He then ventured into other musical landscapes and enjoys genres across a spectrum, particularly infatuated with the raw creativity of rockstar energy. From Funkadelic to Rick James, Black Sabbath to Santana, and Living Color to Pantera, Nash takes influence from diverse favorites and brings them to life in his own style.

What drove him to take music seriously?

“My grandmother asked me to play her a song,

and I couldn’t. I knew riffs and pieces, but not a full song. And that was the start of wanting to get good.”
- Byron Nash

Behind the Music

Nash’s lyrical soundscapes draw from personal perseverance and overcoming a troubled background while also touching on the human experience. His goal? Immerse crowds in guitar-fueled sensations that connect themselves and to a moment in time.
