When The Stray Birds take the stage, the spotlight falls on three voices raised in harmony above the raw resonance of wood and strings. It is a sound drawn from the richness of American folk music traditions, spun with a stirring subtlety and grace. From bustling street corners to silent halls, their performances speak to an uncompromising reverence for songs.
Raised within a few miles of farmland from each other in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, their flight began with friendship. With miles of music already behind them, Maya de Vitry and Oliver Craven first shared a song in January 2010. A snowy Pennsylvania winter welcomed collaboration between the two creative flames— and inspired the collection of seven songs found on their first EP, Borderland.
The meeting of kindred musical spirits is a fortunate encounter. But beyond the luck of blend and the intuition of breath comes the question of a fierce dedication to a collective craft. Two years passed, and three tables had been cleared. Charles Muench, who contributed upright bass to the Borderland EP, climbed on board as the third voice. The trio recorded a full-length album, packed a party of seven instruments into a station wagon, and set out to sing for an endless road of towns.
Their full-length debut, The Stray Birds, was lauded by radio stations and listeners across the country and named to the Top 10 Folk/Americana Releases of 2012 by NPR. Passionate live performances led to appearances on NPR’s Mountain Stage, the Philadelphia Folk Festival, the Kerrville Folk Festival, and the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival.
The band maintains an ambitious touring schedule and revels in the energy of each room. Hailed by No Depression as “a band destined for global success,” The Stray Birds performed at the 2014 Celtic Connections festival in Scotland, and followed that appearance with a string of sold-out dates in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
On July 31st, the trio announced the release of their 2nd full-length record. "Best Medicine" will be released October 21, 2014 on Yep Roc Records.
