Birds of Chicago


Birds of Chicago

Birds of Chicago have been riding a
swell of good mojo in the Americana
world since their inception in late
2012. With their new album, Love in
Wartime, they are set to both confirm
that roots world buzz, and break on
through to a wider audience across
the world. Critics have scrambled to
find the right terminology to describe
the deep lyricism, gut-punch singing
and fevered musicality….“Secular
gospel” was one phrase that caught
some traction. That fervour is
evident in their latest album, Love
and Wartime as well: “Roll Away the
heavy stone/roll away the heavy
hours/roll on in the summer moon/
who’s alive who’s alive who’s alive?“

The invitation is joyous, but urgent
… call it “secular gospel,” or call it
what they used to call poetry intoned
over roots music mash-ups: rock n
roll. The Birds consider themselves a
rock and roll band first and foremost.
Built around the chemistry and fire
between Allison Russell and JT Nero,
the band has included a core band
of empathetic assassins since it took
to the road full time in 2013. Russell
and Nero played with different bands
in the mid-noughties (Po’ Girl and JT
and the Clouds) before finding their
way to each other.

"Birds of Chicago seduce us with
their joyous, intimate, spare, rousing,
soaring vocals and their hauntingly
evocative lyrics.” No Depression
