I wrote about John Fullbright this week partly because over the last two years I have seen his name in places I trust, referenced by artists I like, and playing clubs I wish I could go to. Of late the same can be said for the trio The Stray Birds. This simple acoustic trio is starting to make waves with their excellent musianship, stipped down songs and beautiful vocal harmonies. The band released an ep in 2010 and are prepping the summer release of their debut full length.
Pick up the ep Borderland here; and stay tuned to Songs:Illinois for news of the upcoming album.
