  1. Hi,

    Thanks for listing my songs, and my first name is Byron. However, my last name is Murray. But, you know, Byron James does have a nice ring to it. If I ever need a name change, I believe that is the one I’m going with. I am enjoying this experience of O.M. ing. once a month and I continue to meet interesting, talented and supportive people.

    Thanks again,

    Byron Murray

    Well my goodness! Thank you for your kind words!
    I had a great time working with all those talented people and can’t wait to do it again!
    Mary Sugar
