Blue Bird represents the latest evolution of female-fronted independent music. The group’s soaring vocals, musical depth, and songwriting abilities find them at the forefront of new sounds emerging out of the indie music hot-bed of Omaha, Nebraska. Blue Bird is the creation of pianist/acoustic guitarist Marta Fiedler, the band’s lead vocalist and chief songwriter. Fiedler is flanked vocally by Julie Crowell and Darci Boyer. These young women have brought a fresh sound to the stages of Omaha and throughout the country during the band’s recent tour of the Midwest and East Coast in the summer of 2011. The dynamic of Blue Bird is a unique one, and backing up these young songstresses is a group of some of Omaha’s most experienced musicians: Ian Simons (keyboards), Vince Giambattista (guitar), Matt McClure (bass), and Rob Mathews (drums). This dynamic has allowed Fiedler’s musical visions to be fleshed out wholly and made a reality with a stronger result that one might find with a group of musicians still building their chops. Blue Bird’s songs feature lush harmonies and diverse musicality with depth, offering appeal to a wide audience. The band takes on softer tones and showcases a classic indie pop sound while mixing in folk, Americana, and chamber pop orchestration. When listening to the band’s debut recording, Metamorphosis EP (self-released fall 2010), thoughts of Hem, pre-pop hits Bangles, Calexico, She & Him, and Azure Ray may be evoked. Blue Bird is able to bring the quality of their studio recordings to the live stage, and they offer an emotive set of songs where the vocals truly shine and the musicianship of all seven members are showcased. This is truly a band with a bright future! Watch for Blue Bird recordings, tours, and special appearances throughout 2012 as they start a new chapter of sharing these songs with music fans everywhere. Joe Starita wrote SONGS that he demo'd Which were distributed as RECRUITING PROPAGANDA and then largely discarded The man Ernie Lohrer was still into it So he built a table of WEIRD and uses that and the ever present and well represented BASS James Beesley 3 was talking about "sure come on lets do it" So he was IN playing lovingly collected old KEYBOARDINSTRUMENTS housed in a place that is a beautiful recording studio and LITERALLY totally pretty clean. But then Paul Casey joined HuntHuntHuntCamp And he has played trillions of notes on a: THE SAXOPHONES Robert Olinski plays the CLARINET and his life does depend on IT Now the band sounds incredible and come see it When it happens again**************
