“Bird sounds like a new-age folk blend of Stevie Nicks or Joni Mitchell, creating the same laid back mood as these icons.”
So says The Gazette, University of Western Ontario.
Kaley Bird emerged onto the Canadian music scene producing “music that is quirky, smart and full of musical goodies” The Gauntlet (University of Calgary). Bird’s debut release was immediately welcomed by campus and community radio and was soon being heard nationwide, quickly climbing campus radio charts and receiving regular play on CBC, CKUA and select commercial radio stations. Relentlessly touring, Bird has shared the stage with the likes of Steve Earl, Kathleen Edwards and many others. Bird has performed at venues and events across Canada and the U.S. Highlights include performances at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival, Canadian Music Week, North Country Fair, the Canmore Folk Festival, and as one of the fates in Anais Mitchell’s folk opera: Hadestown.
Working with critically acclaimed musician and producer Russell Broom (Jann Arden, The Dudes), Bird’s latest album, Don’t Say You’re Sorry was released January 10, 2014. Bird wrote much of this album between 2011-2012 while living 3 hours south of her hometown of Edmonton, AB. The songs pay tribute to the people and landmarks of Alberta’s beautiful and harsh northern capital, and through song, Bird depicts the love/hate relationship she has with the place she grew up.
