Andrew Bird is an internationally acclaimed multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, whistler and songwriter who picked up his first violin at the age of four and spent his formative years soaking up classical repertoire completely by ear.

 

Since beginning his recording career, Bird has released 13 albums and performed several hundred concerts worldwide. Mojo Magazine declared him "simply incredible live”. In recent years he performed as the Whistling Caruso in Disney’s The Muppets Movie, scored the FX series Baskets, and collaborated with inventor Ian Schneller on Sonic Arboretum, an installation that exhibited at New York’s Guggenheim Museum.

 

Bird has been a featured Ted Talk presenter, and hosts an ongoing Facebook Live series of performances called Live From The Great Room, putting the creative process on display for fans as he performs and converses with friends and collaborators in a candid, intimate setting.

 

His most recent studio album, Are You Serious, was released April 1st, 2016.
