'Birds of Chicago'
Another one of Calstock's favourite bands!
First in Calstock there was Po'Girl with Alli Russell and Awna Texeira in 2010. Then Jt & The Clouds in Feb 2011 followed by PoGirl with JT in the band in Sep 2011. In 2013 Birds of Chicago (Alli & JT) played at Cotehele now they are back with a four piece band
Birds of Chicago began in 2012 when Nero started writing for his vocal star-muse, Russell. Both were accomplished singer/songwriters with projects of their own, Nero with JT and the Clouds and Russell with the acclaimed Canadian roots outfit Po’ Girl, but together there was an unmistakable chemistry. A cross border band was born.
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. Music is the good news and Real Midnight, the band’s poignant 2016 Joe Henry produced album, throbbed with an urgency that felt quietly seismic.
Music this raw and soul-rich demands to be experienced live, and Birds of Chicago have developed a fervent following, touring 200 nights a year since their formation in late 2012. For these Birds, singing for a room full of new people, hearts wide open, keeps off the cold and chases off the shadows. In 2018 the Birds will be bringing American Flowers and Love in Wartime to a town near you.
Rock and Roll will save our souls. Or, it’s got as good a chance as anything.
