Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds

Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds

Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds is an eight piece powerhouse that puts a modern spin on classic soul. The band is led by Arleigh Kincheloe (Sister Sparrow), whose astoundingly powerful voice and sly demeanor make for a spellbinding presence onstage. She is backed by the mighty force of The Dirty Birds, a flock of seven men who masterfully lay down thundering grooves and soaring melodies. While each of the Birds are capable of lighting up the stage with jaw dropping displays of musicianship, it’s clear they’re focused on delivering the band’s infectious music as a single entity. Simply put, the band’s live show is explosive.

overheard somewhere:
With a lot of artists it's easy to nail a clever one liner on the head, like a "so-and-so meets so-and-so." Which is certainly not a bad thing; working within a familiar sound is an art all its own. But it's not so often you stumble upon something compelling that doesn't fall so neatly into that sort of classification. Sure, you might want to draw comparisons to someone like the Dirty Projectors, but Cassorla's whimsical songwriting, backed by skilled and thoughtful musicianship, is distinctly unique. The songs seem to effortlessly wind between hooks, bouncing drums, and sharp, accented guitar licks, while the poetic lyrics walk a line between weighty reflections and satire. Did I mention they're all really f'ing good at their instruments..........
