"I've been listening to Strangebyrds album, Highway Islands several times over the past few days, it's beautiful. I love the songs and arrangements, your voices are wonderful together and on top of all that, the spirit you bring to it all is real and powerful".
Tim Burlingame, Sweet Talk Radio
2021 marks ten years of our music duo, Strangebyrds. The songs on our fifth studio album, Highway Islands were started in the fall of 2019 and through the eye-opening year of 2020. We took this time of canceled shows and tours and wrote and recorded twelve new songs in our home studio, Byrd Nest Recording. These twelve songs are a “landscape of songs” written in a time of great change and turbulence throughout our world. They are songs of hope and also pinpoints of the ever-changing climate in our nation. Our fans became and continue to be our lifelines supporting our “Blue Collar Folk-Americana” as never before and giving us new hope.
Strangebyrds have recorded four award-winning releases recognized by both the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival Songwriting Competitions: Star Crossed Lovers (2018), Devils & Desires (2015), Migration (2013), and Strangebyrds (2011).
The magnetic synergy of Strangebyrds' unique Americana music has forged a reputation for captivating audiences with powerful, universal truths layered within stunning musicianship.
