"Songs for sinking souls, hope for humankind."

A Strange Bird is a soulful folk-poet and dark pop singer-songwriter. Her sound is a harmonious blend of simplistic finger-style guitar, dulcet smoky tones and deeply emotive lyrics. 

Born in Seattle and again in New Orleans and once more in the red rock deserts of Utah, she claims home is wherever her feet meet the path. After years of exploration and misadventure she finds herself back home in Washington where she released her first full length solo acoustic album recorded in collaboration with Shady Pines Media in Portland, OR.

Just me and my guitar the bare bones; The Hollow Bones Album.
