A blend of roots, reggae and folk, wound together with captivating hooks, solid grooves and striking harmonies.
Sydney artists black bird hum finished off 2013 with their third release, a roots‐dub‐reggae offering that ponders the shortness of life ‐ “No Exception”.
The track, which received JJJ airplay as well as coverage on all the major indie/community radio stations nationally, was taken from their debut album “In Time” – a record that swings from gentle, thoughtful folk ballads to the type of big‐band reggae that throws everything at you from horns to percussion to tripped‐out synths and delay‐drenched keys.
2014 has seen the band return to the studio to record their much-anticipated follow up, and album that has spared none of the production the debut was lauded for, but captures the raw, organic approach of a band that has toured relentlessly for 4 years.
The band have shared the stage with the likes of Six60, Georgia Fair, Marshall and The Fro, Botanics, Tin Sparrow and The Salvagers; exciting fans from Sydney to Byron Bay and back. Combined with a run of festival performances that includesi back‐to‐back Peats Ridge Festivals, their reputation for an impressive live show is quickly building.
Following 2012 shortlisting as finalists for the MusicOz Awards (blues & roots and acoustic singer/songwriter) 2013 saw the band up and down the east coast of Australia touring releases from their debut album and nabbing a gong at the Australian independent Music Video Awards (Innovation).
Don’t miss their first shows performing the new material as they tour the East Coast of Australia throughout Autumn and Winter 2014.
