Feeling a bit camera shy


Hi, we’re Weatherbird an alternative/rock/grunge band based in Telford, Shropshire. Our main influences are Nirvana, The Pixies, The Beatles and The Subways. This has led us to inject our music with the raging aggression of Nirvana and the expansive melodies of the Beatles... .. In early 2009 we travelled to Robannas Studios in Birmingham to record our first studio demo, which we sold at our gigs. This first demo helped us to get our first paid gig at the Woodbridge Pub in Coalport. Soon after this gig we sent our demo to BBC Introducing and our tracks ‘Fortune’ and ‘I’m leaving’ were played on BBC Radio Shropshire. Our first gig outside of Telford was at a band night in Sutton Coldfield, which managed to attract over 200 teenagers... .. After a short summer break we played our 3rd gig at the Woodbridge, this time playing a longer set in front of nearly 100 paying fans. We returned to Robannas Studios in November 2009 to record 4 tracks, in which we adopted a more professional attitude, as these tracks were to be heard by record labels and promoters. At our next gig we gave out over 100 cd’s, containing those tracks, for free to our fans as an attempt to promote ourselves in the area. Two of the recorded tracks, ‘Dependence Day’ and ‘Sell Out The Sun’, were played on BBC Radio, and ‘Sell Out The Sun’ was played on BBC Radio 6. Also in November we played at the Oakengates Theatre Band Night, this was the first time we had used professional equipment and lighting, so it was a good experience. In February 2010 we went to a local studio with professional sound engineer, Mike Johnson, to record 2 new songs.... .. We made our debut appearance at the well renowned music-supporting pub, The Haygate and branched out to Surrey for a band night in March. We played at The Woodbridge Inn again in April as a final gig before our 2 month break for exams. We released our new single 'I wish you were within my grasp' on April 14th 2010. Throughout June/July we played a series of gigs around the midlands and recorded some brand new songs.... .. In September 2010 we won the chance to play at park live (a large telford event) voted in as the Beacon Radio listeners choice, therefore were the opening act for the event. In October/November we gave away free copies of a cd containing our 4 most recent songs at the Woodbridge and again played all around the west midlands.
