Sydney & Melbourne Shows January 2007
“I’m not sure if there’s a name for the type of music Bird is making, but whatever it is, it’s beautiful & new & I love it.” – Pitchforkmedia.com
Andrew Bird is a previously unimaginable combination of songwriter, violinist, guitarist, vocalist & whistler. His unfailingly unique & striking music, as evidenced on his most recent & wonderful album, The Mysterious Production of Eggs , has been dumbfounding those in the know for years.
Equally impressive is Bird’s solo live show at which, with the aid of a sampling pedal, the songwriter takes his often dense, orchestrated recordings & re-writes them anew each night, adding hypnotic layers of instruments to his vocals & other-worldly whistling. Armed with a violin, an electric guitar, a glockenspiel, & a sampler “Bird is simply incredible live” (Mojo Magazine).
“Taking all the best parts of Jeff Buckley, Devendra Banhart & Rufus Wainwright, Bird can be noisy, charming, frivolous, haunting & playful all at once, with each song an adventure & a mystery” – Billboard Magazine
