Andrew Bird

Performing: 1/21 4:55pm

Andrew Bird first picked up a violin at age four and spent his formative years immersed in classical, early jazz, country blues and gypsy music. Though these influences still percolate within Bird's brand of pop, he has established a sound that is distinctly his own. He has played such prestigious venues as New York's Beacon Theater and Carnegie Hall, Coachella, the Austin City Limits Festival, the Hollywood Bowl, Bumbershoot and in front of 15,000 fans at Chicago's Millennium Park. Bird recently composed his first-ever film score for the movie Norman, and his music is featured in the new Muppets movie. Bird's latest release is entitled Hands of Glory.

"[Break It Yourself] is the perfect album: tender without being sentimental, experimental yet accessible, utterly unique to its maker." - The Guardian UK
