""Sweet harmonies...""

Black Bird Hum are in the new folk-ish ballpark, Sleep (independent) a song leading an EP of the same name, which wends its way into our head on sweet harmonies and soft insistence... - Drum Media

- Cumberland Newspapers Manly Daily


""i love his voice""

""A fine artist...""

""Buy this EP. Support this band. Two thumbs up!""

The Ramblers have a groove that is impossible to ignore. The EP starts with New Day Rising and immediately captures you with its laid back beat, positive message, and intricate guitar work that pushes its way into small breaks in the music. The recording immediately presents itself as a professional level worthy of radio airplay to get the word out about this band.

Altogether, Form 1 Planet has thoroughly impressed us and we look forward to catching The Ramblers at their next gig (conveniently one suburb away from my office in Sydney). Buy this EP. Support this band. Two thumbs up!

Bio

A blend of roots, reggae and folk, wound together with captivating hooks, solid grooves and striking harmonies.

Sydney artists black bird hum have returned with their second release, a roots/reggae take on the Tears for Fears classic “Mad World”.

The track is taken from their upcoming debut album “In Time” – a record that swings from gentle, thoughtful folk ballads to the type of big-band reggae that throws everything at you from horns to percussion to tripped-out synths and delay-drenched keys.

The album was one of the last to be mixed in Sydney’s famous BJB Studio’s in Surry Hills and was co-produced by singer Jon Panic and ARIA award-winning producer Tim Whitten (Powderfinger, The Panics, Augie March).

The band have shared the stage with the likes of Georgia Fair, Marshall and The Fro, Botanics, Tin Sparrow and The Salvagers; exciting fans from Sydney to Byron Bay and back. Combined with a run of festival performances that includes back-to-back Peats Ridge Festivals, their reputation for an impressive live show is quickly building.

2012 saw black bird hum shortlisted as finalists for the MusicOz Awards (blues & roots and acoustic singer/songwriter) and 2013 sees the band set off on an east coast tour in support of their first second release “Mad World”.
