The Bowerbirds have music that I would liken to a piece of earthen clay that has been crafted by a skilled artisan at a well-known folk festival.
In other words, I think that their music has fingerprints.
Bowerbirds were formed in 2006 in Raleigh, NC and are comprised of Phil Moore, Beth Tacular and Matt Damron.
I have a few Bowerbirds essential tracks for your playlist.
“Hooves” and “In Our Talons” from their album Hymns for a Dark Horse. And from their more recent album, Upper Air, I prefer “Teeth” and “Northern Lights.”
This is creative music.
By that, I mean it is music to play whilst drawing, sketching, sculpting, cooking — anything that requires you to tap into a deep place and make something — this is the theme music.
So get some of their ear candy and go create.
