David Byrne Facts

  1. When David was 2 years old, his family had moved to Canada and settled in Hamilton, Ontario. When he was 8 years old, they had relocated to the United States and settled down in Arbutus, Maryland.
  2. The reason behind the family’s emigration from Scotland was because of a lack of jobs in the United Kingdom relevant to his father’s skills. Another major reason was that there was a lot of tension between his parents’ families due to their ‘mixed marriage’. They belonged to different Christian denominations – his father was Catholic while his mother was Presbyterian.
  3. One of the middle names of his daughter, Malu, is Abeni. It translates to ‘We asked for her and she came to us’ in Nigerian. He had revealed that his daughter was born after a lot of struggle and a friend had introduced him to the term ‘Abeni’ which he used in naming his daughter.
  4. He is left-handed but plays guitar right-handed.
