What Bird


What Bird is Julia Harrison and Winston Harrison. The duo from Nashville, TN describe their music as “late-night driving music,’ as they are most influenced by the dark, kinetic, peaceful, yet unsettling feeling of a late-night drive. Musically this translates to combining acoustic and electronic elements together with a dynamic rhythmic pulse to create a mesmerizing sound. Winston and Julia met as students at the University of Miami, where Winston studied jazz bass and Julia studied classical flute. Read more on Last.fm
What Bird is Julia Harrison and Winston Harrison. The duo from Nashville, TN describe their music as “late-night driving music,’ as they are most influenced by the dark, kinetic, peaceful, yet unsettling feeling of a late-night drive. Musically this translates to combining acoustic and electronic elements together with a dynamic rhythmic pulse to create a mesmerizing sound. Winston and Julia met as students at the University of Miami, where Winston studied jazz bass and Julia studied classical flute.

After college, Winston toured with the Gabe Dixon Band while Julia attended graduate school at CalArts in Valencia, CA. The 30 mile drive from Los Angeles to CalArts and back every day provided a backdrop for Julia’s songwriting. Her late night drives through the winding and mountainous freeways lead the way to her collaboration with Winston, who had begun writing and recording ambient and IDM music under the name “Fuzzmuzz.” Julia and Winston found they shared a similar musical sensibility and formed What Bird. Currently, What Bird has released their debut album, Good Night, Good Riddance, recorded in October 2007.

The album incorporates a number of unusual instruments: drum looping, mandotar, flutes, tuba, celeste, and buzzaphone. What Bird cites as influences: Everything but the Girl, Kristin Hersh, Eric Satie, and Arvo Part. "Good Night, Good Riddance is immediately comparable to Frou Frou and Sarah McLachlin. Organically electric in production, the record is filled with ambient guitars, loops, and a slew of other instruments...The result is an outstanding high pop record that will be well-received by the most discriminating audiences."
