EDITORS’ NOTES

The Stray Birds are classically trained multi-instrumentalists who play guitar, dobro, fiddle, banjo, piano, and upright bass. Sounding like Gillian Welch and David Rawlins with a touch more pop polish, the trio blend old-time folk and modern Americana. The arrangements are thoughtful, and the execution is sublime. The three have been making music together since childhood, and the familiarity shows in the airtight harmonies and fluid interplay of the instruments. Standouts include “Feathers & Bone,” “The Bells,” and the title track, but any of these tunes are good enough to grab attention.

Well, Well, Well All I See Is All I Tell

Heard the song 'Best Medicine' on NPR and was an instant fan. What's it gonna take to overthrow the mainstream radio and play some real music over the airwaves like The Straybirds for a change. Great stuff!

Top Notch

Really like these guys. I hope their new label Yep Roc is able to start giving Stray Birds the exposuer and success they deserve. I never thought that anybody could match the sound, craft and the modern authenticated sound of Gillian Welch and David Rowlings, but these guys HAVE IT GOING. Just EXCELLENT on all levels
