West Coast duo …

Another great Robert Byrne’s masterpiece were done together with Brandon Barnes and released in 1981. The album “An Eye For An Eye” features fashionable and sophisticated pop tunes. This is the AOR and a little more sophisticated than the Westcoast pop music with a little Jazzy tastes and/or sometimes Fusion, Black Contemporary flavors.

In 2001 the japanese label “Dreamsville” did reissue “An Eye For An Eye” on CD, with two unreleased materials “That’s The Way She Goes” and “Who’s That Look In Your Eye” included. Those two songs were originally prepared for this album and the master tape of those materials was lost due to the fire of the studio.

After Byrnes & Barnes project, we could find Robert Byrne producing works like Pointer Sisters and/or Patti Austin and his songwriting works for Pop Country singers such as Ronnie Milsap. Brandon Barnes is also known for his producing and songwriting works with Brian McKnight.
