Biography

Janie Price aka Bird was six years old when she first picked up a cello and 11 when she first sat behind the drums, which would eventually lead her to her first gig headlining the legendary Marquee Club in an all girl punk band...

 

She continued her career as a session musician; Drummed for Haddaway, recorded cello for Sony, Mercury, Universal and many other major labels’ artists.  She sang bv’s and lead vocals on live shows as diverse as TGI  Friday, National Lottery, Glastonbury, V Festival and Roskilde.

 

Eventually she wanted to start writing music as well as playing, created her stage persona Bird and released her first album “The Insides” to considerable critical acclaim.

 

On Bird’s latest album ‘Figments of Our Imagination’ Bird showcases her multi-instrumental skills by playing every recorded instrument herself, part-produced by legendary Rolling Stones Producer, Chris Kimsey in London and mixed by Lee Groves in New York.

Following the Top 10 club chart success of the Bimbo Jones remix version of her single Hypnotise, Bird was contacted by some of the UK’s top remix teams wanting to get involved in her project and before too long another album’s worth of material was created. Ten remix versions of the original album’s material featuring tracks by DEVolution, Seamus Haji, Moto Blanco, Full Intention and Wideboys was released under the title “Beat”.  The club EP sampler version went to #8 in the Music Week Commercial Club Pop Charts last Autumn.
