Blackbird Orchestra

 Seattle, Washington, USA

Dark, Romantic, Nostalgic – Reinvented


Blackbird Orchestra is a Seattle based Alternative Rock band formed in 2006.

Driven by guitar, Blackbird Orchestra has been referred to as “The illegitimate step-child of U2” but don’t let that fool you. The Bands rich pageant of lush guitars, melodic bass and captivating rhythms combine into a unique sound and can be best summed up as “sensitive-yet-cynical romanticism”.

Musical styles like Dark Rock, Shoegazing and even a little New Wave are hints that can be found in the music but yet fail to describe the bands elaborate musical ornamentation and song writing.


The album "Fables and Fields Green" was released in late 2009. It is currently on CDBaby, itunes, Amazon MP3, Lastfm, and as well as sold through the band website.

Set List

Our usual set is 50-60 minutes long. We have enough material to fill longer sets as needed. We usually do not do covers but are occasinally known for pulling out a mean Johnny Cash cover now and again.

We cater the set to the venue and crowd we are performing to. We can do an acoustic set with strings (violin, cello) or our full electric set. The choice is made after discussion with the venue.
