Birds of Chicago, a collective based around singer-songwriters/
instrumentalists JT Nero and Allison Russell, release their eponymous debut album on October 2, 2012.
Comprising twelve original songs, Birds of Chicago immediately soars into flight with the protracted leap
of its lead track, "Trampoline," an infectious bass- driven bastion of communal joy being shared for free
at BirdsOfChicagoTrampoline. From there, the journey fluidly glides throughout the canon of American
music, from the gospel-infused harmonies levitating "Cannonball," to the simmering soul of "Before She
Goes," to the Cajun-spiced polka of "Sans Souci," to the sparse, yet sprawling, "rock & roll is dead and in
its grave" soliloquy encircling "Old Calcutta" to the rustic waltz of "Galaxy Ballroom" through to the deep
burning sojourn of "The Moonglow The Tapeworm". Its destination of migration has been an organic one.
