Folk / Americana

Combining a wintry longing with the warmth of a familiar folktale, Humbird stretches between experimental folk and environmental Americana to embrace the unexpected. This music invites a refreshing dissonance into the house, it leaves bread crumbs along the path and reflects light back at the stars. Humbird’s debut album Pharmakon (Aug. 2019) is a “ absolutely hypnotic listening experience” according to Folk Alley. Atwood Magazine describes it as music wrapped in “gentle rebellion”. Most recently, the material on Humbird’s sophomore record Still Life (October 2021) has received enthusiastic praise from within the folk world. Keith Harris of Racket Magazine explains, “‘Still Life’ is an album to lose yourself in during certain moods, or in others to find comforting details to grasp onto. The album stands alone as its own artifact, which, carefully crafted as it is, has a particular kind of spontaneity.”
