Well, finally I had my chance to get a listen to Bird York - a singer/songwriter/actress who writes mesmerising music pieces full of emotion and soft grooves. You've probably heard the name sometime around the last month, after her famous song "In The Deep" been listed for 2006 Academy award nomination for oscar nominated film "Crash".
I recommend anyone who likes to indulge on silky soulful vibes to check York's newest CD "Wicked Little High". Assisted by production masters such as Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell) and others, the album delivers a deep jazz-soul sound, rich and enigmatic on every single moment. One of the top releases for me this year.
Get some moments of Bird York:
- Live at KCRW "Morning Becomes Eclectic" - Audio (40mins).
- LIve at KCRW - video (40mins).
- Official Site - player at the bottom of page.
I kinda sense she's about to become one of the biggest names in the coming years. Would certainly like to try and remix her works...
