“Two of the most compelling new voices on the Americana music scene.”

—Chicago Sun Times

Beautiful words and music go together eloquently in this talented duo of Allison Russell and JT Nero. Stark, elemental imagery that feels like scripture, or a lost folk song recovered; the Birds draw heavily on the gospel tradition and the music feels like a new, secular gospel of sorts. For Birds of Chicago, every word counts. Every note counts. No gold-dusting, no filler.
