Album Notes
Classic Pop from an artist that knows no genre or category. Soulful vocals, catchy melodies, lush harmonies and more like the concept albums from the 60's, 70's & 80's but with sharp, modern lyrical bite. Award winning songs from a down to earth artist who has no ambitions outside of writing songs he's proud of and expressing himself in a world gone mad.

geoff's music should be heard on all the radio stations throughout the world!!! his music is without a doubt grammy material!!!!


Just let it play and play and play . . . .
I need more than five stars for this CD.
If you are looking for music that you can take to heart -this is it. This is a phenomenally talented band. Geoff's voice is perfect and the instumentals are amazing. The only time I take "Shrinking Violets" out of my car is to bring it in the house. The song lyrics are edgy, contemplative, fun and meaningful. A bit of everything that somehow just flows together. It is a CD for anyone that loves music! Something for everyone. So get it, put it in and just let it play, Baby!


Shrinking Violets - - > ALBUM OF THE YEAR!!!!
Shrinking Violets is a fantastic tour-de-force from Geoff Byrd, featuring some of the most entertaining music I've ever heard. There's not a clunker among these tunes, which reach deep into your being and wrap themselves around your soul. Byrd is a talented singer/composer; among my favorites tunes on this disc are Parasol, Will You, Before Kings, Elusive Butterfly, Frozen, I'm In Love, and the title song. The range of emotions expressed in these songs is truly remarkable. You can find a song to play (or sing!), no matter if you're jazzed or mellow; look no further. This guy is going to be a HUGE star.

Perfectly impressive!
It is RARE to find a CD that you can actually say you love every song. SHRINKING VIOLETS is a RARE gem indeed!!

exceeded my expectations
after seeing Geoff in Vegas, I had to order this CD.
Also, as I live in Canada, it is not available in stores...yet.
I absolutely love Parosol, it is my favorite, largely due to the lyrics which I can totally relate to...
Before Kings is great, as is Silver Plated, but Plasti-Queens is a fun song!
I can't wait for Geoff to become the star he is destined to be.. and hopefully see him here in Canada soon.

A fun, sexy roller-coaster ride! You'll love it!
Geoff Byrd's CD is like cheating on a feel guilty for not having the willpower to say no, and it is just SO good! I think Geoff makes music fun, fresh and sexy again! No angry rants here, this sets the brings back the best of soul, pop and rock and roll, all with a modern snap! This is music that was made for one reason, to get close to your woman and dance, baby! Its all about the groove! I was fortunate to see Geoff and the band live and let me tell you, #1) A lot of beautiful women dancing in front of the stage and 2) this guy rocks better than anybody out there today! This band definately has what it takes! Buy the CD, love the CD, then go see Geoff Byrd live...and take a date! You'll thank me in the morning!


Musical Ecstasy!!! Heaven captured on cd!!!!
Better than a vacation in the Bahamas! From high-energy music of That's How It Goes and Elusive Butterfly that starts every day on a right note to the sensitive and haunting vocals of Frozen, Geoff Byrd and The Sentinels totally deliver!!! Every song is a hit!!!! By far, the best cd that's come out in years!!! These guys are right up there with Aerosmith, Elton John, The Beatles - all of the greats!! Definitely destined to be musical legends!! It doesn't matter what type of music you listen to, this cd fits in with ANY collection!!


I absolutely LOVE this CD. It's like good old fashioned POP music with a new flare that gives it an edge. It's a refreshing change from what most artist are doing these days, a great mix of sounds and ideas that is easy to listen to without being boring. There are some very catchy tunes that have already made it to my favorites list.
Parasol is at the top! Check out his website for a listening sample of what's on the CD then come back here and BUY IT!!!

Shrinking Violets is a mainstream contender....a pure gem.
When I heard Geoff play live acoustic versions of four songs from Shrinking Violets in concert, I knew there was a magic in the melodies and a special quality in the voice behind them. This was confirmed when hearing a full band supporting the tunes on this gem of a CD. Shrinking Violets is a serious contender against any mainstream none.

Discovered Talent
Got to see Geoff while he was touring with H&O last month. What can I say? He is young, talented and with a unique awesome sound. I have not stopped playing this cd since I bought it. Looking forward to many more new cds to come...
