“Distinctively original pop music.” Paste Magazine
“Bird has developed a finesse for off-kilter pop… shaping songs that are catchier, by their own terms, than most of Top 40 radio.” The Onion’s A.V. Club
For as long as he can remember, Andrew Bird has had melodies running through his head. The indie singer-songwriter – renowned for his wildly imaginative songwriting and uncanny whistling abilities – is more likely to blow your mind than most alt-pop musicians in the world today. Drawing on influences from American roots music to his classical training, the “relentlessly inventive” (NPR) Chicagoan creates densely layered soundscapes on stage with his violin, a looping pedal, guitar and glockenspiel. His songs are driven by infectious, lilting melodies and clever lyrics that “spin existential doubts into elegant confections” (The New York Times).
