Q

Why are you guys, and gal, so awesome? I can't quit listening to your cd! I would love for you to come play a show in South Carolina.

Well thank you! We're actually in the process of booking a big ol' tour down south in February/March. I think South Carolina is in our sights, but we'll keep you posted via the email list either way. We'll be on the road a lot next year, so we'll definitely be getting down there in the near future. Keep your ears to the ground!

Q

Being a blues based Southerner in NYC, I'm curious who your influences are, where yall are from, and if your beautiful lead singer is single ;-)

A

My mom has been my biggest influence. Between her own style and the singers she loved listening to (Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Patsy Cline, Sam Cooke, among others) I extracted my sound. Of course I gravitated towards the soul/blues end of the spectrum, but not entirely consciously.

And you make a bird blush...

We're workin on it! A few of the Dirty Birds are actually from the Bay Area, and pretty much all of us have family in various parts of Cali. It's a little tricky to get all 9 of us out there, but as soon as it becomes practical we'll be there. We'll keep you posted! Really happy to hear you dig the tunes. Spread the word! :-D
