Each of us grew up in the 90's crossing the basic musical bridges. Our Early memories summon the Bee Gees, Michael Jackson, The Beatles, Nick Cave, Burt Bacharach, Dolly Parton, Elvis, Pavement, Wes Mongomery, Nirvana, Bach, Patti Smith, Chuck Berry and so on and so forth. Currently there's so much out there on Independent labels like Matador, Social Registry, Touch N Go, Rough Trade, Hush, Asthmatic Kitty, Ace Fu and on and on. An attempt to mention a small portion seems daunting. Living in New York City constantly allows us to come in contact with so much and so many. Also, like everyone else with the human condition, the boredom and excitement of everyday life is major influence. All of this coupled with rhythm, tone and melody helps us build a platform for the listener to create their own imagery. At least that's what we're hoping for in the end.

The band’s atmospheric sound owes much to dirty, swaying guitar riffs and reverbed lead vocals echoing Galaxie 500 and Band of Horses; together with these bands, the frontman of Silence the Bird has a distinctive, high range voice that’s an integral compliment to the spacious music. On recording, Silence the Bird is largely electric-guitar driven, but rumor has it they’ll be bringing the intensity down a bit for Wednesday's Showcase...
