  • Birds of Chicago

    Birds of Chicago is a collective based around JT Nero (JT & The Clouds) and Allison Russell (Po'Girl) - two of the most compelling new voices in American Roots music today. Nero's fractured country-soul voice wrapped in Russell's silver and gold tones is a fine thing. Not too perfect, not at all saccharine, you'll hear echoes of mountain gospel, street corner doo-wop, and classic soul. Accompanied by just a banjo and a guitar, it's chilling.

    Sean Hayes

    “San Francisco singer-songwriter Sean Hayes sometimes gets lumped in with the "freak folk" movement that has spawned the likes of Devendra Banhart: As with Banhart, his rootsy pop-rock songs radiate a shaggy, free-spirited charm that rarely seems attached to any particular era. But his five self-released albums are unencumbered by affectation, instead radiating the unpolished warmth that's helping to make Hayes a rising star.” - NPR Music
