Album Notes
"Beyond Byzantium" is the 2nd music released from Jack Cutter. Jack is a solo acoustic steel string guitarist based in the San Francisco Bay Area in California.

Jack essentially started with a $5 banjo just after finishing high school. In University, during the late 60's, he performed with bar bands in Buffalo, New York. At that time he minored in Music. After completing University and a year as an Aerospace Engineer, he decided that attack helicopters were not really what the world needed and so he headed off to California in pursuit of music. He was captivated by the music and mystic of the times.

There followed a twisted path of performing solo and with small groups (acoustic and electric) as well as writing and recording. After staying in the 'small time' for roughly 10 years, Jack went into studio engineering and eventually was owner of Razor's Edge Recording in San Francisco for 10 years, after which time he pursued software development up until the early 2000's. During the 'programming days', he was asked by a friend about the guitar that was sitting in the case. Well doggone if that didn't relight the fire. Hence around 1996, Jack started a return to music. Since then it has progressed from dabbling to passionate pursuit.

Jack currently performs regularly at Farmer's Markets, BART train stations, restaurants and gigs around the San Francisco, California Bay area.
