Feeling a bit camera shy


Sound of Birds is a rock-art-trio based in Phoenix, Arizona, consisting of Michael Red (guitar/vocal), Olivier Zahm (guitar) and Justin White (drums).

Sound of Birds began as a home recording project for Michael Red with the "so low" release on 56th Street Records in Feb of 2002. The first solo performance of Sound of Birds was at the Paper Heart Gallery in Dec 2003 to a beautiful audience of 35 (a single shot dvd was produced of this show). Feb 2004 brought the completion of the second SOB disk, "eden", a seven song solo ep recorded at Phoenix's own Portal Records, bringing more agressive guitar tones and vocal shading than the first disc and a video for the single "sideshow" with the assistance of Steve Schneider and performances by Stephen Strange (magician master of the mystic arts) and Matti Baine (trapeze artist).

March 2004 brought Olivier Zahm into the fold with a wall of guitar feedback, and by April 2004, Justin White's position as SOB's drummer became secured. Two intense weeks of rehearsing brought the trio to their first public performance at the Emerald Lounge on April 21, 2004. They continue playing for most major art spaces that Phx has to offer. The recording for the current "Emerald EP" began at the Conservatory of Recording Arts in Tempe, AZ, and at Olivier's own Champagne Studio in mid 2004 (at the time located inside the Portal Records' space). Currently recording music for upcoming full length cd in Olivier's Champagne Studio based in Phoenix, Arizona.

Sound of Birds is currently playing in the Phoenix Metro and Tucson areas, US Southwest, and recently completed a 15 show US westcoast tour (July 20 - Aug 3, 2005).
