Although his career has spawned through three different decades, Andrew Bird is one of those few modern musicians whom can be defined, without a doubt, as a real artist.
Standing as a solo performer or along with The Bowl Of Fire; experimenting with new instruments or bringing back the old ways of swing, folk, bluegrass, country, classical music; embracing new sound sources or reminding everyone the purest ways of music. It is always a delight to step into one of Bird’s endeavors.
Turning 12 years old since its release next month, his third album with The Bowl Of Fire gave birth to a song that simplifies all of his influences into a 3:34 long masterpiece. Sounding like it belonged to a dream, 11:11 has a tiny bit of everything: classical string arrangements, a country sounding vocal duet, experimental ambiance and that old-timey folk feeling.
Andrew Bird is currently touring the world, with two upcoming shows in México City and Guadalajara (on March 1st and 2nd, respectively) along with Torreblanca and new coming folk artist Vanessa Zamora.
