A Nest For All



In 2018 a ragtag bunch of seasoned musicians united under the banner of eclectic, personal, and passionate music. Led by singer-songwriter Alex Fortier (Juicy Connotation, i.am.tru.starr.), the Birds were created to surpass the borders between influences, creating stories and sounds with both depth and clarity. The group features drummer/percussionist Chris Palace (Juicy Connotation, Dream Float, Funklopian Tubes, Siena Facciolo), guitarist Will Schantz (P.V. Nunes Band, Archive Ravens, Red Hot & Blue Band), and bassist Robert MacPartland (Charlie Haley And The Band, Ryan Benthall). In the spirit of diverse sound and personality, their influences come from a variety of disciplines and genres, including rock artists like Paul Simon, Billy Joel and The Band; folk crossovers like Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and Bob Dylan; funk and soul artists like The Meters, TAUK and Donny Hathaway; and even contemporary jazz projects like The Bad Plus, Yussef Kamaal and Weather Report.
