Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds

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 ;-)

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...
