he best thing about afternoon PopFest shows is the likelihood that you will be surprised by band at least once per day. Yesterday, that band was Little Birds from McKinney, TX. They played soft, soft music where the guitars sounded like ringing bells, with a country jangle. One of the lyrics stuck with me: "Something more than what I am." They were definitely more than what their unassuming stage presence indicated.

When we asked them a month ago what to expect from their PopFest set, they told us, "Music from Texas that doesn't necessarily sound like music from Texas." Well, it did sound like it was from Texas, like the unhurried rumble of Texas weather. It wasn't lazy, just inevitable and purifying and dusty. I'll never read a page of Cormac McCarthy again without hearing Little Birds in my head.

What really got me, though, was the tinge of small church gospel that colored most of their set. The harmonies weren't boys-choir-flawless, but they were rough and beautiful enough for the worship of regular people, which is what I happen to prefer. If you have a minute, check out some of their music on MySpace - "A Song For You" gets me a little. - Athens Exchange

Bio

Brooke Opie has been writing and performing songs since she was born (perhaps before, but evidence is hard to come by). A lifelong singer, she began to teach herself how to play the guitar while in high school and developed a songwriting style that echoes the likes of Elliott Smith, The Magnetic Fields and Michael Nesmith.

While performing numerous solo sets in north Texas music clubs and coffee shops, she began recording her songs on analog four tracks and her laptop computer. These recordings revealed an artistic vision that simply could not be translated when performing alone, so she began to assemble a band to flesh out her compositions. Her band mates—Cliff Caster, Faye Caster, Justin Lloyd, Scott Lorenz, and Dan Ragusa—were already fans of her music; it didn’t take much to convince them to join. They decided to name their band Little Birds and began playing shows under the new moniker.

Little Birds is currently writing new songs and perfecting old ones. They are currently working on their new record.
