A secular gospel/roots/rock collective, now being called one of the most compelling new voices in North American roots music. Allison Russell (formerly with Canadian girl band Po’ Girl) and JT Nero (formerly with The Clouds) produce gritty, soulful, rock n’ roll psalms that simmer, burn, and satisfy.
Birds of Chicago has developed a fervent following, touring 200 nights a year since 2012. For these Birds, singing for a room full of new people, hearts wide open, keeps off the cold and chases off the shadows. 2017 finds the band in constant motion – from sea to sea and beyond.
Why we invited them:
Music this raw and soul-rich needs to be experienced live.
