"Birds of Chicago are a rare collective of thoughtful musicians, centered around Allison Russell and JT Nero. Together they reassert the simple notion - radical in these times - that beautiful words and music can still tap deep veins of emotion. Their lyrics house stark, elemental imagery that feels like scripture, or a lost folk song recovered. The Birds of Chicago draw heavily on the gospel tradition and the music feels like a new, secular gospel of sorts.  USA Today

“…[Birds of Chicago] performances often feel playful, from the hearty rapport of their harmonizing to Russell’s capricious sculpting of enunciation, phrasing and tone. They show us a way to fully live with the awareness that nothing’s forever and everything’s at stake.” – NPR First Listen    

“Two of the loveliest male-female voices you might ever hear this or any other year.”   Huffington Post     

"Ready to take their place among the best young male/female duos now performing."  Mountain Stage host Larry Groce 

Their 2014 debut release, Love We Are We Love, received praise from NPR, American Songwriter, and No Depression, among others, gathering nearly 10 million streams on Spotify. The animated video for their song "Waiting" sparked viral interest including Buzzfeed, Pitchfork, and inclusion at the international TED 2015 conference.  

"Their harmonies remind me of The Milk Carton Kids and The Weepies, with feather-light production which includes the obscure glass harmonica. I love the central image of "Watertreader," as well as the song's ability to evoke the feeling of suspended animation we sometimes experience."  Mountain Stage host Larry Groce 
“Ultimately, A Face Like Mine affirms the fact that Peter Bradley Adams is clearly one of Americana’s most consistent and commanding auteurs, and one whose recognition is long overdue. A more beautiful and beguiling effort would be all but impossible to even imagine."  No Depression   

"Quiet, contemplative and utterly compelling. Peter Bradley Adams' A Face Like Mine is simply, stupendously good."    Minor 7th of the 21st-century writers whose songs are worth exploring.” Wall Street Journal

"Richey has won raves for her sweetly alluring, folk-friendly brand of country.”   NPR "World Cafe" 

“Richey’s intimate simplicity makes for compelling listening.”  Los Angeles Times

“Richey’s subdued vignettes about loss and broken love possess no shortage of enduring charm.”  Paste Magazine      
"Kim Richey is a gifted, rootsy songwriter who may not have to wait much longer for the big break she so richly deserves.”   Time Out New York

​“Richey entices you with sad and unembellished music that reveals an original spirit - and then she ensnares you for keeps by making you consider all the noiseless sensations that no songs can ever contain.”   Billboard Magazine

A Music Series
Season 11
"He's one of our great songwriters.  One of our great writers, period."  Slate 

"Richard Shindell works impressive alchemy with the plainest, most primal American pop melodies. Stark and unsentimental, Shindell's songs unfold with the unadorned grandeur of hymns... the music glows, and when the words illuminate complexly shaded situations - an unspecifically troubled family man waiting alone in his house for an oncoming monster storm, for example - the effect can be shattering."   LA Weekly     

Birds of Chicago

"Kenny the artist, the songwriter, the troubadour, is winning hearts everywhere and often to my good fortune, joins me in concerts. It is always a gift to see him and hear him sing his amazing songs."    Judy Collins   

"I’d have to say that Kenny White has earned a place among my favorite singer/songwriters … and particularly, lyricists. As we say in the trade ‘he goes deep.’ A true wordsmith AND musician who reveals a fine sense of humor, as well. Put on your headphones and listen carefully.David Crosby      

“Songs of tragedy, comedy, life and death … Kenny White is the troubadour of our sometimes sweet, often troubled times. ‘Carry You Home’ is the big song I’ve been waiting for. Bravo, Kenny, in all categories…writing, playing, singing. Could I have some more, please?”   Will Jennings
Multi Oscar and Grammy Winning Songwriter
