Welcome to YELLOW BIRD. New album - EDDA LOU - out soon.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yellow Bird is "Super-Dada Bluegrass", wrote Francesco Wilking (of "Die Höchste Eisenbahn") about their debut album "Sing". The German newspaper DIE ZEIT found their debut recording SING to be "a contemporary, urban review of pop music’s roots: melancholy, subtle and self-ironic.”

 

Yellow Bird (from Berlin, the U.S. and Switzerland) plays Modern Roots Music, with two-part harmony singing, bass clarinet, guitars and percussion. The lyrical and powerful voices of Manon Kahle und Lucia Cadotsch (awarded with the ECHO Jazz 2017) tell stories of black trains and blue cowgirls and are backed by an awesome band: Ronny Graupe, Uli Kempendorff and Luwig Wandinger.

 

The band spent most the past year working on their second recording. The result is an album of ten songs which at times sound like the lost soundtrack of a Jarmusch or Coen Brothers film, with Joni Mitchell and Tom Waits in the lead. Big Beats, hauntingly beautiful voices and a blues-steeped guitar-uke-banjo and bass clarinet stew tug at your heartstrings and make you move.
