The son of a career military man, Bayers moved around as a child, originally from Maryland then spending time in Nashville, North Africa, Oakland, and Philadelphia. His early musical training was as a classical pianist studying Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart.

After a short stint in a New Jersey show band he decided to move to Nashville.
