Lauren Barth
Lauren Barth
California songstress and modern troubadour living in the heartland of Tulsa. Debut record "Forager" will be released in 2017.

A modern folk singer, captivated with the idealized American West, Lauren Barth is a traditional troubadour of her generation. A guitarist and poet since an early age, her craft is delicately reminiscent of the singer-songwriters of the 1970’s. Lauren’s music nods to the muses – Neal Cassady, Gram Parsons, Big Sur, the California desert, and the many roads that lead from here to there and back again. Her delicate finger-picking and sweet songs of love and loss bring a style that lies somewhere between Nashville and Laurel Canyon, western swing and psychedelia.

Radio Birds
Rock from Atlanta GA

To see and hear them now, you might never believe that a few short years ago Radio Birds had a completely different lineup, look, and sound. In early 2013, rising united from their earlier musical experiences, these four young men decided to take a risk and start completely over with a new name and sound. They quickly worked up a batch of new songs, and by that summer they had recorded a successful EP and had begun playing extensively, even winning the 2013 Masquerade Musicians Showcase in Atlanta, GA. Within a year of their rechristening, they were booked for The Rock Boat 2014 (and 15!), were featured in a major motion picture (Jason Momoa's Road to Paloma), played SXSW, and attracted the services of indie Atlanta label Brash Music. Things have moved quickly for a reason, and everyone involved points back to two causes: Radio Bird's irresistible character and undeniably unique sound.

That sound is simple: Plain-Old Rock and Roll Music with a distinctly hairy touch. Meaning, it is not clean, it is not easy, (or too difficult), and it is not The Next Logical Revival of a Previously Popular Genre From the Seventies. It is what you get when four guys all write music with the basic beliefs that it must be played live, and it must be played everywhere. Each of their songs is different from the others and is balanced by the web of harmonies that entangles the whole group. Everybody sings, and sometimes, you just can't help but sing along.

Radio Birds has taken their sound out to the world, and their dedicated touring and writing schedule proves one thing: Radio Birds wants you to hear them now more than ever. They are proud to announce an exciting new album, recorded at the world-famous Southern Tracks studio, featuring an impressively diverse set of songs and even additional instrumentation by Will Turpin (Collective Soul) and Mark O'Connor. Equipped with new songs, longer hair, and scruffier beards, they look forward to spending the next several months bringing this music to everyone who will listen.
