Andrew Bird Biography - Hear Tracks from his Brand New Album Are You Serious
It's safe to say this star's instrumental credentials leave most in the shade. Trained on the Suzuki method at the tender age of four, the Lake Forest native spent most of his youth devoted to refining his violin skills. Later learning to play a myriad of other instruments including guitar, glockenspiel and tin whistle, this passionate multi-instrumentalist began his professional music career in earnest as the driving force behind fantastic fusion bands Squirrel Nut Zippers and Bowl of Fire in the 1990s.
Upon the dissolution of the latter act in 2003, Bird reinvented himself as a solo artist, and set about his one-man mission of updating the traditions of small-group swing. His three-part live album series Fingerlings caught the attention of music bigwigs, and secured him a deal with Fat Possum. Studio albums such as Armchair Apocrypha (2007) and Noble Beast (2009) demonstrate a synthesis of influences, from English folk music to classical master Claude Debussy and pre-war jazz.
Now heralded by serious music lovers as one of the world's finest solo musicians, Bird is noted for improvising and reworking his songs during live performances. While 'Pulaski at Night', 'Dance of Death' and 'Fake Palindromes' remain firm favourites among fans, this ground-breaking musician is still keen to revolutionise indie music as we know it. He'll bring his new album Are You Serious to Britain in 2016, so make sure you snap up this rare opportunity to share his company - get Andrew Bird tickets now on StubHub.
