rare birds in flight

 Austin, Texas, USA

eclectic folk rock with an emphasis on vocals and lyrics


Rare Birds in Flight are taking wing with their vibrant music, stirring lyrics, and stunning and surprising melodies and harmonies. The band is fronted by the songwriting vocalist twins Elizabeth and Laura Moliter, whose sounds evokes the seasoned sensuality of torch crooners-- with depth of emotion and melodic fluidity--and at the same time has an impact, intensity, and an energy that really rocks and rolls.

Laura and Elizabeth have been singing together since they were kids in the pristine town of Greendale, Wisconsin. The twin sisters grew up as a natural duet, harmonizing easily through childhood, whether only for each other or as performers on stage. As they became young women, each followed a separate path and discovered her own individual voice, with changing backdrops as inspiration. Over the past 20 years, Elizabeth and Laura's experiences have included performing on stage in New York City musical theater and cabaret; discovering Austin, Texas, and adding their voices to bands involved in its vibrant rock and blues scene, and through those years both together and apart, putting into poetic and honest words the lives that women so often lead--loving, losing, living, learning, and laughing.
Now they return to the original duet, coming back eagerly to the unbreakable connection which years of living apart has only made more powerful, poignant, passionate, and heartfelt. They are grateful to be collaborating again with their soulful original songs, made even more haunting and unforgettable by the skillful and tantalizing JT on guitar, Chuck T’s smoking bass playing, and the tasty percussions of Misha Ben-David. This trio of musicians brings their talents, inspiration, and broad musical experience to Rare Birds in Flight, giving both sensitivity and edginess to the Moliters’ original songs.
