Elvin Byrds is the solo project of Renaud Ledru, the singer/songwriter from the free folk garage duo Alaska Gold Rush. After two albums and several EPs with a drummer, he is now alone on stage with an acoustic guitar. Passionate about north american cultural heritage, he has developed a unique style of playing and writing inspired by his discoveries.
His first LP “RIOT” is released in 2019 by the independent record label Luik Music, ten songs going back to the roots of folk music with poetic texts that evoke travel and stir reflection. Elvin plays many solo shows in Belgium and abroad regularly opening for renowned artists such as Last Train, Jim James, Quentin Sauvé, Emilie Zoé, Tiny Legs Tim.
