Brian Byrne (born January 13, 1975 in Steady Brook, Newfoundland and Labrador) is a Canadian singer-songwriter and musician, best recognized as the vocalist for I Mother Earth.


Brian joined his first band in Corner Brook in 1988, a hair-metal band called Pandemonium. The band also featured John Kennedy, Rick Waterman, Todd Cook, and the late Kris Waterman, who selected the 13 year-old Byrne as the lead singer for the band.

Byrne lived in Steady Brook and Toronto in the early 1990s, where he worked at different times as cook, dishwasher, bartender, night cleaner, office work, ski instructor, and rock climbing instructor. He fronted bands such as Mess and Klaven (the latter with Adam Gontier of Three Days Grace) before eventually joining rock band I Mother Earth in 1997. He recorded two albums with them, "Blue Green Orange" (1999) and "The Quicksilver Meat Dream" (2003).

His solo debut, "Tuesdays, Thursdays and if it Rains", was released on April 11, 2006. In support of the album he toured Canada, playing both acoustic solo sets and with a full backing band. In November 2006, Byrne opened for INXS on their Canadian dates.

Byrne appeared in an Ontario Travel tourism television commercial that debuted in March 2007; he sings the song "There's No Place Like This" to images of people in Ontario enjoying themselves across the province.

Byrne released his second solo album, "Tailor Made", on September 4, 2007.His touring band now consists of Bob Egan (Blue Rodeo, Wilco), Christian Tanna (I Mother Earth), Gerry Finn (David Usher) and Justin Mahoney.

In September 2007 the band played a CCMA showcase in Regina, Saskatchewan, and later toured Eastern Canada, doing shows with The Divorcees and as the supporting act for Corb Lund.
