Mr.TalkBox

Artist Biography

Orlando-born singer and self-taught instrumentalist,

Byron "Mr. Talkbox" Chambers’ musical career began in his father's

Gospel group at the age of five. Growing up in a musical household,

Byron was introduced to various genre's of music. He listened to

everything from Gospel to Jazz. However, there was one particular sound

that caught his heart: The Talkbox. He heard it used by R&B Funk

Master artist, Roger Troutman and he immediately wanted to play it

himself for God.

And his journey began…

Byron performed and toured with great Gospel artists like Jonathan

Butler, The Mighty Clouds of Joy, Fred Hammond, Ce Ce Winans, Kurt Carr

and Bishop T.D. Jakes, to name just a few. From there, he was offered a

position playing keys with mega-pop band, *NSYNC and his career

catapulted. Over the years, he has toured and performed with the

Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, O-Town, Gloria Estefan, Jordan Knight

and appeared on shows such as Saturday Night Live, The View, The Radio

City Music Awards, Nickelodeon's Teen Choice Awards, Walt Disney's Very

Merry Christmas Parade (ABC), The N'SYNC "Aint No Stoppin' Us Now"

Payper- view special, MTV's TRL, Good Morning America, E True Hollywood

Stories (N'SYNC), the Loreal Summer Music Mania, and Nickelodeon's The

Big Help.


While Byron was honored for such amazing opportunities, he felt that a

career on the road and in the spotlight was starting to take its toll

and his life was heading in a direction he didn’t like. He decided to

step away from *NSYNC and focus more time on his wife and family.


He started working with TobyMac and was featured on the GRAMMY

nominated, Dove Awardwinning, albums Welcome To Diverse City and

Portable Sounds. Additionally, he was writing, co-writing, arranging and

doing guest spots for artists like O-Town, Group 1 Crew, Martha Munizzi

and many others. He took a position playing drums for Group 1 Crew and

working with

Top 3 American Idol finalist Danny Gokey.

Still, he didn’t feel like he was where he was supposed to be. God began dealing with Byron spiritually concerning his gifts.


Byron explains, “God told me at the height of my blossoming career to

leave the road and dedicate my life to him, and he would bless my music

to minister to the world." In 2004 he recorded and released his debut

cd, My Testimony, which sold in over 17 different countries, making him

one of the top sellers on CDBaby.com. Most recently, Byron became a

member of TobyMac’s Diverse City Band and he still continues

his solo career.


His newest project, My Time, released in March and is already making

quite an impact. The first radio single “Ground Zero” reached Top 10 on

the Rhythmic Charts. Byron's TALKBOX performance synergizes with a

unique micro-phonics sound that delivers a sensationally new flavor of

music that "talks." His animated electrifying presence reveals his deep

passion to spread the Gospel.


Byron has a true testimony to share. His life, experiences, and choices

he's made on this journey have paved the way for healing and deliverance

of others.
