Biography

Deep in the land of Dixie emerges a band of young, talented musicians poised to bring the sound of rock and blues to their generation. Blackbird has already built a fan base throughout Georgia and Florida. They have held the #1 spot for three weeks on Tallahassee’s Gulf 104 Homegrown radio program. They have been entertaining audiences only since January 2006, but they play with the maturity, precision, and creativity of a long standing band. Blackbird’s song “Fancy Brown Eyes” earned them international recognition in the November issue of ShureNotes as a Top Ten Band.
It's hard to believe that the talented young musicians in Blackbird are still in school - high school even. Al, 16, Matt, 18, Adam, 20, and Joel, 22, became connected to each other through their high school chorus and band programs. They played together in the high school’s blues band, so they all shared an appreciation for the old blues. It’s no surprise that most of the band members grew up listening to classic rock, too. Their music is greatly influenced by some of Rock's best music: Pink Floyd, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix and of course the Allman Brothers Band.
Blackbird’s youth and energy add excitement to their classic rock covers and original material. They continue to write and share their innovative blend of rock and blues with hopes to put together an album in the near future.
